Baku to host Flavours of the Silk Road: International Conference on Food, Culture and Tourism
The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), in cooperation with Azerbaijan`s Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Azerbaijan Tourism Association will host the “Flavours of the Silk Road: International Conference on Food, Culture and Tourism” at Baku`s iconic Jumeirah Bilgah Beach Resort.
The conference will be dedicated to highlighting the huge potential of the Silk Road region for food and intangible culture tourism. Silk Road destinations are widely recognized for the main sites of built heritage – but the Silk Road region is home to a rich diversity of food and cultural tradition.
The conference will bring together representatives from tourism ministries, national tourism offices, tourism officials, experts and grass roots practitioners from across the Silk Road countries to share best practices and discuss how the Silk Road destinations can enhance their competitiveness through food tourism.
