The Terroir Symposium is Canada’s leading forum for those in the hospitality and tourism sectors. Curated by the Culinary Tourism Alliance, it offers unparalleled opportunities to network and connect with like-minded individuals from around the globe.

This year, the Symposium will explore the choices we make and how they affect the growth, change and collective identity of our industry. The event will offer main stage programming with multiple concurrent hands-on workshops focusing on sustainability, wine, tourism and food trends. The day provides dozens of learning opportunities through inspirational, educational talks, workshops and panels.

Over the last 10 years, we’ve hosted some of the most talented and interesting people in food, hospitality and related sectors from across the globe. We’re excited to welcome +50 speakers from around the globe to the stage this year, including Chef Darren MacLean (Canada), Wida Winarno (Indonesia), Selassie Atadika (Ghana), Ben Branson (UK) and more. This year, join over 1000 chefs, producers, artisans, managers, media, entrepreneurs, storytellers and destination developers from over 20 countries on May 6th, 2019 in Toronto. 

Not only is ITAC an event sponsor, but Charlie Sark, our Indigenous Tourism Strategist and Advisor also will in attendance. The event is taking place at the Chelsea Hotel in Toronto on May 6th.
