Why did these conferences choose Flanders?
Maria Soledad Gaido, UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism
“UNWTO ensures that chosen destinations are poised to lead the way towards a sustainable future for the gastronomy tourism sector. And Flanders is a destination that is leading by example. It has one of the world’s highest concentrations of top-rated restaurants. Small-scale microbreweries are emerging, young chefs are innovating in zero-waste cooking and experimenting with local ingredients. Chocolatiers are redefining the classic “bonbon” and street food is shifting from the streets to the region’s restaurants. A young, creative generation is breathing life into Flemish traditions and keeping Flemish culinary heritage alive.”
Don Keleman, Innova Flanders
“Ghent’s vision and ambition to become Europe’s technology and innovation capital fits perfectly with “Make Innovation Real”, the essence of Innova conferences. So, it didn’t take long to decide to hold this edition of Innova in Ghent. And voilà, Innova Flanders was born.”
Maartje Beekman, Director CODART
"As a network for museum curators of Flemish and Dutch art, we naturally have a close relationship with Flanders. The location of our conferences changes every year, but we regularly hold them in Flanders. Of course, the reopening of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp is an excellent reason to organize our conference in the city. It will bring together more than 100 curators from all over the world. We are very much looking forward to it!"
Sofia Widmann, Founder & CEO Future Museum
“The re-opening of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp brings Flanders into focus on the international museum scene. The Future Museum community will address the case of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and analyse it from the angle of the visitor journey and engagement of different target audiences.”
