Farm-To-Table Hotels Web Event
Design Re-Invention – Volume 3. Farm-To-Table Hotels. C9 Hotelworks and Delivering Asia Communications are set to bring you a new web event covering this exciting topic on Tuesday 9th June, 2:00 pm Bangkok Time.
Farm-to-table for hotels is more than a niche, but is on the edge of becoming a movement. Food has become serious business for hotels as they move past the buffet and into a changing travel landscape where cuisine is a key demand generator. While terms like artisanal, local, and organic are key trends in hospitality, the end game remains how common sense can be applied to creating a sustainable food supply line.
Our speakers are champions of farm to table hotels with extensive experience in diverse locations such as Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, Laos, and Fiji. The event will provide case studies of how to work on concepts, deliver products and also contribute to this important sustainable cause in one of the hospitality industry’s most creative spaces.
