We know that food tourism is a recipe for economic development success.
OCTA’s Ontario Food Tourism Summit is your opportunity to significantly engage with other food tourism stakeholders like chefs, business owners, artisans, regional development officers and other hospitality professionals from across the province and the country.
This year’s theme is ‘Cultivating A Taste Of Place, Together.‘
We’ll be exploring what makes Ontario’s food story unique and how to take advantage of the many ever growing trends in food tourism. We’ll hear from trail creators, festival organizers and thought leaders. Come join us, in Ottawa.
