TERROIRNOMICS
THE POWERFUL ECONOMICS OF LOCAL

Join us at the Terroir Symposium to gain practical knowledge, grow your professional network and glean inspiration from the community powered by the economics of local. Together we’ll learn how our terroir supports economic profitability, a healthy corporate culture, environmental sustainability and vibrant communities wherever you may stand.

The 12th annual Terroir Symposium promises to be very special. We’ve gathered a unique program of thought-leaders, visionaries and influencers to share their insights, ideas and experiences on how to leverage what comes from our lands, lakes and oceans. An interactive day to listen and discuss the opportunities and challenges of showcasing terroir in our businesses and destinations.

Our presenters are leaders in the global hospitality and tourism sectors and will be speaking to technology and innovation, economically viable business models and added value concepts, as well as, dynamic marketing and partnerships that
showcase the best of Terroir.
