Event Details

Held during Melbourne Tourism Week, The Ideas Feast invites tourism industry professionals to come together for a special meal and some valuable networking time with key tourism and hospitality guests.

This event sold out in 2017! This year Destination Melbourne heads bayside to the picturesque St Kilda Boulevard for lunch at Encore. You can expect interesting food tourism discussions while networking over a delectable 3-course lunch with beverages.

Hear how local epicurean culture is intrinsically linked with the visitor economy. The local narrative around eating and drinking is what draws visitors to seek out more than just what is on their plate. Their speakers will lead a lively discussion that will motivate you to consider the possibilities for your business or destination. Celebrate the close of Melbourne Tourism week over lunch with Destination Melbourne.

This year, they will look further into the importance of epicurean experiences to the identity of a destination and attracting visitors. Come to the Ideas Feast to listen learn, eat and collaborate to maximise every opportunity that their reputable food reputation brings.

  • MC, Wendy Hargreaves – Journalist and Presenter
