Terroir Hospitality brings together innovative and creative influencers from the field of hospitality, including chefs, food and beverage experts, writers and business leaders. 

Our organization attracts people who are serious about the business of hospitality and who are looking to constantly develop and refine their careers. Terroir is a not-for-profit committee of industry professionals that put on an annual symposium that is about education, networking, sharing collective resources and building a community that helps to strengthen our industry.


This year’s theme, “Pioneering Change,” will focus on influential individuals who challenge colleagues and consumers to rethink and reimagine food and beverage cultures.  As industry professionals, we have the power to affect change in how societies eat and drink and to create legacies that impact and strengthen the hospitality industry.  For our 9th edition of Terroir, we will invite culinary pioneers to discuss their stories, their passions and ultimately the way in which their journey in our industry has had an effect on our culinary landscape.


We will bring a select group of key hospitality influencers and media to St. John’s to meet with fishing industry experts, to explore and examine both the history and the current realities of an Atlantic community built on an economy of the fishing industry.

We will work in partnership with Destination St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism, Agriculture and Fisheries to design a rich, informative culinary tour that will build upon the momentum of "crafting a chefs charter for responsible seafood consumption".


Our community engages people who are serious about the business of hospitality and who are looking to continually develop and refine their careers. A committee of leading industry professionals, who dedicate and invest their personal time to ensure its success, guides the Terroir Hospitality Conference. Our programs aim to inspire and educate, while allowing time for networking and sharing of collective resources to help build a global community of like-minded individuals that helps to strengthen our industry.
