Thursday, May 14, 2015

A group of 200 industry food tourism industry leaders met last month at the Basque Culinary Center in San Sebastian, Spain, at a conference co-hosted by the United Nation's World Tourism Organization. The purpose of the conference was to define food tourism and debate the value and future of the industry. The result? The consensus is that food and drink tourism is here to stay. Why? It's mostly about the money.
