Recently I attended the Global Food Tourism Association Conference in Austin, Texas and it was fabulous. So much information in a short period of time, I have a to do list a mile long of ways to improve my business. Love working with Shane and the GFTA staff to take my business to the next level.
As the world’s leading food and culinary tourism conference, GFTC left our team energized with actionable take-aways to help take our Food Tourism businesses, ventures and concepts to greater heights. I am so excited about all the new ideas I came away with during this conference. One thing I am going to do for sure, is to keep my Global Food Tourism Association (GFTA) Membership current and actively seek out the Brain Trust in this organization, which by the way is the other owners of Food Tours around the world. Staying in touch and learning from other industry owners is the best way to grow my business.
GFTA promotes industry networking to solve knowledge gaps with a clear focus on continued education and professional development, sharing of ideas and resources, in-and-out of industry expert training sessions and much more.
