On 2nd January, it was announced by the World Food Travel Association (WFTA), the world’s leading authority on food and beverage tourism, that the 2017 FoodTrekking Awards for excellence in food and beverage tourism are now open. These awards are unique because they fill a void of recognition of experience excellence in 13 categories within the food and beverage tourism industry. In travel, food and beverage is the fastest-growing sector, which is itself one of the world’s largest and most economically important industries. Businesses and organizations interested in applying for the awards can do so on the Awards website at www.FoodTrekkingAwards.org and applications are being accepted between January 1 and February 28, 2017.
The judges will be experts in their respective fields, who will be serving for the 2017 awards. They will review two different applicants according to established criteria in a review process that is fully confidential. In case of ties, the tied applications will be reviewed. Each category will have a grand prize and a runner-up. The winners of the awards will be felicitated at a special ceremony after the Awards.
