The 2017 edition of the World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism returned to its origins in San Sebastian, Spain and its surroundings. The Basque Culinary Centre in San Sebastian is the co-organizer of all UNWTO fora on Gastronomy Tourism and the World Forum is held there every second year.

Like the 1st and 2nd World Fora on Gastronomy Tourism, this forum provided an opportunity for leading experts in gastronomy tourism to discuss the current situation and challenges in Gastronomy Tourism worldwide. Areas of management, the organisation of events and innovation in channels of communication were discussed, in order to boost the professional development of the sector.

This forum was also held in the new and unique format, with different events being held in various gastronomy hubs across the Basque Country, showcasing the rich offer of gastronomy products.
