Parma, June 12-15: Italian Cuisine in the World Forum

The third edition of the Italian Cuisine in the world Forum will be celebrated in Parma on next June 12-15. It’s the only Congress in which chefs, restaurateurs and media representatives coming from over 50 countries gather to discuss on both the achievements and the future of Italian Cuisine (and the related Ho.Re.Ca industry) in the world. They will be joined by food and wine producers, journalists and Michelin star chefs based in Italy.

The Forum is promoted by the network itchefs-GVCI and is supported by prestigious sponsors that play a fundamental role in the export of Italian food and wine. The Forum is an event of exceptional importance since behind the “Italian Cuisine” brand there is a vibrating industry that – according to the most conservative estimates – includes at least 80.000 Italian Restaurants that serve every day millions of eager consumers of Italian food, wine and lifestyle. These restaurants are at the same time ambassadors of both the Italian lifestyle and the unique opportunities that Italy offers to tourists. The over 100 participants to the Forum will represent in some way the approximately 800.000 people involved in the ownership, the management and the running of the Italian Cuisine industry in the world.

The Forum will feature many events, including Round Tables with experts coming from all over the world and tasting workshops on Italian typical products. In the occasion of the Forum the Italian Cuisine in the World Media Awards will be presented to international media that distinguished themselves for publishing outstanding information on Italian food and wine abroad and gastronomic tourism in Italy. For the second year in a row the Forum will host the second edition of the Pasta World Championship promoted by Academia Barilla with participants from 24 countries. At the end of Forum there will be “Export Model”, a food and wine kermesse, open to the general public as well, celebrating the products that made famous Italian cuisine around the world.
