1st UNWTO World Forum on Food Tourism

San Sebastián, Spain, 27- 29 April 2015

We are pleased to announce that UNWTO and its Affiliate Member the Basque Culinary Center are organizing the 1st UNWTO World Forum on Food Tourism, in collaboration with Basquetour, the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and the Donostia-San Sebastián city-council. 

Food is a fundamental element of all cultures, a major component of the world's intangible heritage and an increasingly important attraction for tourists that remains vastly untapped in many destinations. The linkages between food and tourism provide a platform for the transmission of culture, local economic development, sustainable practices and food experiences, which help to brand and market destinations, as well as support local traditions and diversity.

Gathering international experts in both gastronomy and tourism, the 1st UNWTO World Forum on Food Tourism will provide a valuable platform for participants to exchange experiences, enhance understanding of food tourism and successfully manage this growing tourism segment worldwide.
