World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism to Analyse Job Sector

The countdown begins for the 5th World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism to be held May 02 -03 in Donostia-San Sebastián, organised by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the Basque Culinary Center (BCC).

International experts will analyse and discuss the influence and capacity of gastronomy tourism to create employment and promote entrepreneurship and how to increase its potential in the future.

The Forum will explore how the most favourable frameworks can be created in order to stimulate job creation and entrepreneurship throughout the gastronomy tourism value chain.

In addition, the speakers will try to identify the most relevant skills for this type of tourism, which should foster synergies among emerging companies, promote the inclusion of disadvantaged groups and take full account of digitalisation.

The event will bring together speakers and experts from all regions of the world, as well as internationally renowned Basque chefs. In addition, the event will host the presentation of the UNWTO/BCC Guidelines for the Development of Gastronomy Tourism.
