The new stage of iTEG, the event designed to Re-Design Italian Food and Wine Tourism, which has a strong focus on the 17 Goals for Sustainable Development (Agenda 2030) and the ambitious aim of providing new guidelines for operators throughout the supply chain, will take place on December 1, 2022 in Rome.
An exclusive location will host the event: the Church of San Silvestro al Quirinale, from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm. On this stage, a number of TEG topics will be addressed through new points of view, representing the following ‘i’s’ of TEG: I-nclusion, I-taly, I-ncoming, I-nternationalization, I-investment, I-nnovation and I-nteraction.
A Full Day Dedicated to Italian Food and Wine Tourism
The day will include 2 panel discussions (Inclusion and Sustainable Networks, Italy: TEG Destination) and 4 iTEG Talks (Networked Tourism Offer, Incoming: Shared Strategies, Internationalization & Investments, and Strategic Plan for Communication) with 3 Main Goals to be achieved: to analyze the experiences and best-practices of different professionals, corporate, associative and institutional realities, so that every actor in the tourism and food and wine supply chain can take their cues and turn them into feasible and tangible action plans; to define Sustainability (environmental, social, economic) and Inclusion, through a format that allows operators to concretely identify their activities within the 17 Goals for Sustainable Development (Agenda2030); to define Incoming and Communication Strategies for Italian Food and Wine Tourism.
iTEG New York
Based on the results and guidelines that will emerge from this full immersion day, the program for the third stage of iTEG in New York will be defined. The goal will be to boost the incoming of those targets strongly attracted by an authentic and inclusive food and wine and experiential offer, in order to develop partnerships and networks for new business opportunities in Italy.
The Latium networks being worked on will involve local stakeholders with a single and shared vision for a more coherent, conscious and responsible promotion of their destination.
“Another important novelty of iTEG Rome of which we are proud,” explains Paola Puzzovio, Founder and Project Manager of TEGing, “is the Partnership with BOOKS for PEACE, an international nonprofit organization that awards people and/or organizations of excellence in the field of ‘social and cultural integration, sports, art and all-round Peace. Three International Social Awards will be presented to 3 Italian excellences, selected by the TEGing Italia committee, for the categories: EnoGastronomic Tourism, Sustainability and Inclusion, and Social.”
At the conclusion of the event, guests will taste an interregional aperitif, a food and wine journey between Puglia and Lazio. A convivial moment, an opportunity for personal and cultural enrichment, taking into account different dietary needs and highlighting the 5 senses, taking care to avoid food waste and more.
Food and conviviality strengthen relationships allowing sharing mission and goals, reaching ambitious goals and creating new visions.
