The World Food Travel Association , the world’s leading authority on food and beverage tourism, today announced the speaker lineup for its 2017 FoodTrekking World convention, taking place April 2-4, 2017, in Portland, Oregon, USA. Eight world-class, inspirational speakers and leaders in food tourism thought-leadership will share their knowledge to help attendees take advantage of the intersection of food and travel.
“Food and drink consumption is the number one traveler activity,” said Erik Wolf, Executive Director of the World Food Travel Association. “Our goal is to unite the food & beverage and travel & hospitality industries in order to create connections and more opportunities for food tourism – ultimately leading to economic growth and increased traveler satisfaction.”
Food and drink tourism is much more than visiting restaurants and wineries. In total, 20 different sectors of the food, drink, travel and hospitality industries will be represented at the convention.
