How do I "get started" in food and beverage tourism?
It really depends on your personal and professional background and your knowledge of the industry. Lesser experienced professionals may wish to begin with education like our certification program or our book. More experienced professionals may want to create a food tourism strategy for their destination. Businesses on the periphery, such as service providers, may primarily be interested in visibility or sponsorship opportunities.
First, we recommend studying our E.A.S.I. process on the home page of our website. We've duplicated it here to make it easy for you. Then do a self-assessment. Which phase are you in? Education? Assessment? Strategy? or Implementation? We have suggested various activities of ours that match the different phases. Once you understand where you are and what might be of benefit to you, you can explore that product, service or opportunity in more detail.
