Last year, we launched the nation’s first Food and Travel Expo in Providence, Rhode Island. This wonderful event is for people who plan their vacations around food. Whether you travel to Napa for the wine or Texas for the barbecue, our goal is to help you discover some new culinary regions worthy of a tasty adventure. The Expo is coming back for round two on October 3rd and 4th, and here’s what you need to know about the 2014 event:
1. There’s a reason we chose Providence.
2. All foodies are invited…
3. …but we’re doing something special for industry folks on October 3rd.
4. We’ll be announcing the speakers and topics later this summer.
I know, I know…we’re being a tease. But we’re still in the process of putting together an awesome lineup for you. However, we can tell you some of the awesome topics we covered last year, including ceviche from Peru, ice cider from Vermont, chocolate from Madagascar, BBQ from Memphis, the history of food trucks, the terroir of honey, and more. This year, we’ll have even more speakers, covering even more topics. Even we can’t wait!
To make sure that you get all the details as soon as they’re announced, sign up for our email list.
In the meantime, here’s a video of last year’s highlights.
5. It’s a great event, but don’t take our word for it.
Of course we’re going to tell you how wonderful last year’s event was, but we’re obviously biased. So instead, perhaps you’d prefer to see what people said about last year’s event on Twitter…
@TasteTrekkers Last weekend's conference totally rocked! If you're interested in culinary tourism, consider signing up for next year!
