Nordic Food In Tourism//Conference//Austurland

Join us on September 30th in Iceland or where ever you are and discover the future of Nordic food in Tourism.

This event will be hybrid so all you need to do is register your email here below to get all the information needed to participate. Needless to say, we would love to see you in person.

Many Nordic reports have been issued on sustainable tourism and Nordic food systems, but few have specifically focused on FOOD IN TOURISM and the importance of the food and tourism sector working collaboratively and strategically together enhancing sustainable development.

The event will take place in Egilsstaðir, Austurland (East-Iceland) and will also be streamed live.
