About the forum

During the 21st General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), which took place in Medellin, Colombia in September 2015, Peru was named as host of the 2nd UNWTO-BCC World Forum on Food Tourism in recognition of the global position Peruvian gastronomy has gained in the last few years.

From April 27-29 this year, Lima will receive more than 400 tourism and food experts, who will reflect upon the most important aspects of an industry which, according to the World Food Travel Association, generates an annual economic impact of 150 billion dollars.

Amongst the speakers, the event will include specialists such as Carlos Vogeler, Director-Executive Secretary of Member Relations for UNWTO; Joxe Mari Aizega, Director of the Basque Culinary Center; and Yolanda Perdomo, Director of the UNWTO Affiliated Members Program.

Chefs of recognized international prestige, such as Enrique Olvera from Mexico and Peru's Gastón Acurio are also part of the 2nd UNWTO World Forum on Food Tourism, to promote professional development of the industry, providing a space for sharing experiences and identifying the best practices in the world.
