Online panel discussion: Opportunities in food tourism


Join us for this CBI webinar on opportunities in food tourism. Many people agree that through food, travellers get a sense of a destination’s heritage, culture and traditions. This provides a great opportunity for local operators who can develop unique products and help visitors have a more immersive experience.

During this webinar, we will discuss important facts, information and top tips that can help you become successful in food tourism. Both beginners and established businesses can learn from this panel discussion.

Our expert panel will discuss, among other things:

  • The importance and scale of opportunities in the European food tourism market;
  • The characteristics and motivations of a food tourist;
  • The requirements for developing a successful product; and
  • The most effective channels to get your food tourism product to market.
