“The World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism” in Belgium postponed to June 2121

The 6th the World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism which was scheduled to take place in Bruges, Belgium on 1-4 June 2020 has been postponed to June 2121.

Due to coronavirus, the Flemish government and organising partners UNWTO and the Basque Culinary Centre, Tourism Flanders and the city of Bruges postponed the World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism to June 2121. The Flemish minister of tourism Zuhal Demir said “Given the worldwide developments surrounding the coronavirus, postponing the UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism is the only right decision. Public health and supporting the tourist and gastronomic sector are now our priority so that we can come out stronger here and put Flemish gastronomy back in the spotlight in 2021.” The event, which will host a total of 500 politicians, chefs, entrepreneurs and academics and is scheduled to host the sixth one this year, will be postponed until next year and is set to host glorious scenes.
