Effects that Covid-19 Could Have on Food-Driven Travel

02 Jun 2020, 10:00 - 10:45

Live Webinar

Caterer Middle East editor Simon Ritchie will introduce and speak with food and travel influencers as well as hotel F&B experts on the effects that Covid-19 could have on food-driven travel. They will talk about how Covid-19 has altered perceptions on the safety of travel and what hotels can do to encourage customers to make the trip.

Among the topics of discussion will be whether travellers will prioritise experiences over safety, how hotels can provide a safe middle-ground for authentic food adventures, and the impact a lack of travel from GCC countries could have on Asian food capitals.
