We’re proud to be invited to a range of business events in the coming months, where we’ll be sharing our carefully curated TOPOSOPHY insights on a range of areas. As dedicated professionals and sociable people, we look forward to hearing the latest news and views from across the travel, hospitality and gastronomy worlds. Our team of Toposophers look forward to meeting you at one of the following events in the first half of 2019...

European Cities Marketing, Spring Meeting, Edinburgh, 13-16 February

The first ECM meeting of 2019 will take on the hot topic of events, and more specifically, how to keep them on track. In true, transparent ECM style delegates will be able to talk openly about what happens when events go wrong, and become a ‘Festival of Failures’. Having organised four editions of Dine Athens and one massive edition of Taste of Athens, we understand the pressure that events put on organisers, but also how they can mark change in a city, attracting talent, investment and long-term success. See you in Scotland!

World Restaurant Awards, Paris, 18 February

We are proud to be partners of IMG, the team that brings Taste Festivals to 20 cities around the world including Athens, so we couldn’t miss their new annual event! The inaugural edition of the World Restaurant Awards takes place this February, and in addition to a prestigious awards ceremony, we look forward to an unprecedented panel of 100-renowned restaurant industry figures giving first-hand insights into the international gastronomy scene.  

Arival - The In-Destination Event & ITB 2019, Berlin, 4-10 March

Founded in 2017, and held to coincide with ITB Berlin 2019, Arival (4-5 March) is a meeting point and educational B2B event aimed at all those in tech, tours and activities. This relatively new event has been established to meet the needs of small and medium sized enterprises and its educational sessions will take a deep dive into how tours and activities are planned and carried out. We’ll be in Berlin for both Arival and ITB, meeting specialist operators with an interest in joining our portfolio of events. We look forward to meeting you there too!

FUTURISMO Canarias, Tenerife, 25 April

Besides the collaborative economy platforms, what other actors have come to play a strong role in the growth of short-term rentals all over Europe? How does this affect the long-lasting agenda of sustainable tourism in the case of island destinations? These are among the issues that Manolis Psarros will address during the 6th edition of Futurismo Canarias, a business forum for tourism industry professionals from Spain and several other countries. 

European Cities Marketing International Conference & General Assembly, Ljubljana, 5-8 June

This year European Cities Marketing’s biggest annual event will come to the Slovenian capital for the first time and promises to be a lively event where cities from around Europe will compare and contrast the major transformations taking place in destination marketing and management. As part of TOPOSOPHY’s ongoing Industry Partnership with ECM, we look forward to presenting a key resource on destination management, to follow on from our Manifest on the Future of DMOs and the Toolbox on Tourism Growth in 2018.

Taste of London, London, 19-23 June

Billed as ‘The World’s Greatest Restaurant Festival’, the summer 2018 edition of Taste of London attracted over 50,000 visitors to Regent’s Park, who enjoyed food & drink sampling and masterclasses from over 200 food purveyors. As the organisers of the Athens edition, our Toposophers will be at this flagship event, to meet and do business (and maybe grab a bite along the way!).
