RTTF seminar takes a bite out of Culinary Tourism

More and more people are seeking authentic travel experiences, often leading them to sample the fresh, local, sustainably produced and traditionally prepared dishes of a particular region. In the last session of the 2012 RTTF webinar series on Nov. 28, a panel of experts — Rebecca LeHup, executive director of Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, Martina Majerova, trade marketing executive of Visit Scotland, and Karina Oliva, Canadian market specialist of PromPeru — will discuss culinary tourism as a powerful travel trend, review the profile of a culinary tourist, and examine local and international case studies. Travel industry professionals can register for free at thanks to the support of webinar sponsor PromPeru and webinar series sponsors Air Canada, Delta Chelsea Toronto and Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management Ryerson University. Baxter Travel Media’s interactive webinar series offers travel professionals, from anywhere across Canada, the chance to learn about the environmental, social and economic issues affecting the industry from the comfort and convenience of their own desks.
