Gate and Gusto is a national trade fair for gastronomy, foodstuff, hotel industry, and tourism. Since its inception, the event has continued to grow in
the number of visitors and exhibitions with every new event surpassing the record set by the previous event. Another fair that is just as successful is the BIT international tourism exchange.
Although there are different fairs held in different cities across Italy celebrating different industrial sectors, the idea is usually similar—to bring people from different parts of the world to explore the rich endowments of the nation as well as set the pace for new industry trends.
The growth in popularity of Gate and Gusto was also confirmed by TripAdvisor through its study that monitors tourist trends. The result of the study showed that tourists are no longer risking long journeys for relaxation or experiencing nature. Rather, the motive driving the movement of people from one country to another is now largely for unique and emotional experiences.
What To Expect From The 2019 Edition?
The 2019 edition will hold from the 24th to the 26th of March 2019 (subject to change) in Fiera Di Foggia, Foggia, Italy. The three main industrial sectors that will be on focus include tourism and travel, food and beverage, and hotel and catering equipment, shop fittings.
Terre E Sole (a subdivision of the Gate and Gusto 2019 inspired by the new needs of the market) is set to organize a handful of dynamic activities including a national competition at this time. The event will also provide the right environment for the meeting of food technologists, sommeliers, chefs, and ambassadors of Italian food and wine. The stakeholders will try to use the event to recover the healthy lifestyle of the nation as well as study the correlation between the Mediterranean Diet and health.
