We are pleased to inform you that the Affiliate Members Programme will be holding a presentation of the 2nd UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism during the upcoming 2016 edition of FITUR

Following the success of our previous edition, Promperu and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), in collaboration with the Basque Culinary Center, are organizing the 2nd UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism, to take place from 27-29 April 2016 in Lima, Peru. 

Gastronomy, as the essence of culture and a major element of intangible heritage worldwide is a growing driver for tourists that remains often untapped by destinations. The interrelation between gastronomy and tourism provide a vehicle for the transmission of culture which in turn, if properly managed, enhances local economic development, sustainable practices and food experiences. Hence, gastronomy tourism, helps to brand and market destinations, as well as assists in maintaining and preserving local tradition and diversity, harnessing and rewarding authenticity.
