Greek tourism professionals, entrepreneurs and professional culinary schools are invited to form partnerships and actively participate in promoting Greek gastronomy through the 37th World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) Congress that will take place in Athens in 2016.
At an official presentation of the WACS congress held yesterday, 11 February, Despina Amarantidou, director of communications of ARTION Conferences & Events, gave insight on the partnership program that has been planned for Greek enterprises and professional cooking schools.
Ms. Amarantidou presented the opportunities for business partnerships, actions and synergies that will arise from the organization of the WACS congress in the Greek capital.
“The congress will be a dynamic promotion for Athens, the country and its gastronomy, while it will financially boost companies and relevant educational institutions,” she said.
The World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) congress is held every two years and some 2,000 chefs from all over the world gather in an elected host venue. Founded in 1928 in Paris, WACS is a global organization that currently has 82 member countries and 93 official chefs associations.
The WACS congress usually attracts a massive audience and lasts five to six days.
