Australia’s foremost culinary tourism conference ~ May 2020

The inaugural DESTINATION FOOD conference was a runaway success in 2018 and the scene is set for this landmark event to become a biennial fixture in Australia’s food tourism industry calendar.

Returning May 2020

DESTINATION FOOD 2020 will once again bring together industry leaders and colleagues, creating a space to network, share ideas and be inspired to take marketing and development of culinary experiences in Australia to the next level.

A dynamic line-up of panels and presentations is currently in development, with a host of local and international speakers set to take the stage.
