Tenerife will have the largest exhibition area at the 2023 edition of Madrid Fusion Congress: 275 square metres, in addition to the wine tunnel of 75 square metres, 22 more than last year.
Tenerife’s bid is “ambitious”, according to the president of the Insular Council, Pedro Martín, not only because of the space available, but also because of the proposals with which the island will be competing at this international gastronomy congress.
This year there will once again be a restaurant area where breakfasts, lunches and snacks will be served, as well as the national mojos competition. There will also be monographic workshops on wine, with the presence of the island’s six designations of origin, cheese, honey, meat, fish and tropical fruit.
In addition, seven municipalities will showcase their specific gastronomic offerings: Puerto de la Cruz, Icod, Santiago del Teide, Guía de Isora, Adeje, Arona and Candelaria, the latter representing the metropolitan area.
The Insular Council confirms its commitment to gastronomy as an added and fundamental value in Tenerife’s tourist offer, a destination that goes beyond sun and beach, which is capable of generating experiences and attracting tourism that comes to enjoy our local, quality, diverse and rich in flavours product.
Thus, various studies and surveys, demonstrated that in 2022 more than one million visitors chose Tenerife for its gastronomy and that a high percentage visited wineries, street markets and popular festivals during their stay.
Tenerife returns to ‘Madrid Fusión’, highlighting the quality of the local product with the help of professionals from the sector, who will have the opportunity to meet with agents from the gastronomic and tourism sector and generate synergies. Such presence will allow to continue consolidating Tenerife as a gastronomic destination, to ensure that it will become an experiential experience to awaken the five senses.
