World Food Travel Summit & Expo held in Portugal

The 2015 edition of World Food Travel Summit & Expo will take place in Estoril, from 7th to 11th April. The event that brings together food & drink tourism professionals will emphasize the business matchmaking, networking and socializing. The production is organized by the World Food Travel Association and APTECE - Portuguese Association of Food Tourism Development and supported by Cascais City Hall.

 World Food Travel Summit & Expo has practically set its final program, as José Borralho, with APTECE, reported to Event Point. He confirmed the presence of Jodi Ettenberg, from the Legal Nomads blog, and Time Magazine journalist Matt Goulding. José Borralho shares the big news in the event: "as part of the program, delegates will choose a region in Portugal (Porto and North, Centre, Alentejo, Lisbon, Algarve, Madeira and Azores) where they will live 48 hours with the local population, knowing their culture, typical products and cuisine, establishing a close partnership between APTECE,Tourism Regions and local tourism promotion associations."

 APTECE is "immensely proud" to be associated with this event. "Hosting an event of this magnitude brings us to a level where we have greater visibility and are more exposed as an organization and as host country. We are talking about an application won by a private entity, without any commitment of financial support from national authorities, even to this date, but that did not stop us from trying to bring the event to Portugal, overcoming four other countries", highlighted APTECE’s president.

The aim is to receive 500 to 700 delegates in Estoril.
