6TH UNWTO forum on culinary tourism postponed until 2021It was scheduled to take place 1-3 June in Bruges, Belgium

In light of the impact of COVID-19, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the Basque Culinary Center (BCC) and the Government of Flanders have announced that the 6th UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism, scheduled to take place 1-3 June in Bruges, Belgium, will now be held in June 2021 (date to be announced).

The Forum has been co-organized by UNWTO and the Basque Culinary Center since 2015 with the aim of bringing together experts from across tourism and gastronomy to identify good practices and promote gastronomy tourism as a contributor to sustainable development. The Basque Culinary Center in Donostia/San Sebastian, Spain hosts it every two years. The city of Bruges in Flanders, one of Europe’s gastronomic centers, will remain the host destination for 2021.

The Forum’s organizers invite all partners and participants to continue their engagement with this event and look forward to welcoming them to Bruges in 2021. The event will represent a unique opportunity to share experiences of facing up these challenging times and place the two sectors at the center of plans for recovery.

Meanwhile, UNWTO and BCC Start-up Competition on Gastronomy Tourism is still open to all innovative ideas until 30 May.
