Following the success of our previous editions, we are pleased to inform you that the Government of Thailand and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), in collaboration with the Basque Culinary Center, are organizing the 4th UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism, to take place from 30 May to 1 June 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand.

This 4th edition of the World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism will specifically focus on harnessing the power of technology as a driver for sustainable growth. It will provide an excellent opportunity for leading experts in gastronomy tourism to discuss currents trends and challenges in the sector, exchange best practices and inspire discussion on intercultural dialogue, gastro diplomacy, and the importance of technology for sustainable gastronomy tourism. Like previous editions of the UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism, this forum will explore gastronomy as the essence of culture and an element of intangible heritage and the interrelation between gastronomy and tourism that can enhance sustainable local development.
