2nd Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition to be held this year

Published on : Wednesday, February 12, 2020

The UNWTO and Basque Culinary Center have come together again for the second edition of the Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition.

 

After the success of the first edition, the competition has returned to recognize and celebrate disruptive ideas and innovators who will lead the transformation of the sector along with those who are making a positive impact in their local communities.

 

In 2019, more than 300 initiatives from 84 countries were submitted. Projects ranged from new technologies, community-based tourism development initiatives, innovation software and startups focused on innovation-driven agricultural sustainability. All of them help towards advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

To quote Zurab Pololikashvili, the Secretary-General of the UNWTO, “With this competition, we are identifying key companies which will shape the future for food and travel. Gastronomy continues to prove its potential as a vital opportunity to enrich the tourism offer and stimulate economic development in destinations all around the world, especially in rural communities, with the potential to scale on a global level.”

 

The call for proposals for the contest has been launched worldwide and will close on 6 April. The finalists of the startups category and the winners of the social innovation category will be announced on 4 May 2020.
