The Ideas Feast 2018

An innovative dining experience

Destination Melbourne presents: 

The Ideas Feast

Date: Friday 14 September 2018

Venue: Encore, St Kilda


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.

In 2017 guests were seated at gourmet feast whilst engaging in robust conversations with our panel of guests on the topic of food tourism.

In front of a sold out audience, our panel comprised a key chef, restaurant owner and food blogger who discussed how we in the visitor industry can capitalise on our reputation for food excellence. We looked at how food is intrinsically linked with authenticity and identity of a destination and how food experiences influence visitors. We examined at how we can attract more high yield visitors to ensure the visitor economy can collaborate to maximise every opportunity that our reputable food reputation brings.
