Global Gastronomy Summit

A GLOBAL look at the value chain of gastronomy.

Gastronomy, which we believe to be one of the levers of development, came together with Economics for the first time in the world 4 years ago under the title of “GastroEconomics”.

And This year, for the 4th time, the Global Gastro Economics Summit is preparing to set the agenda in Turkey and in the careful circles of Gastronomy all over the world.

As TURYID Turkish Restaurant and Entertainment Association, Turkey’s leading and powerful non-governmental organization, we open new horizons by sharing the stories of those who put investment and creativity at the heart of gastronomy, with the 4th Global GastroEconomics Summit, which is highly anticipated by the sector and the public and sheds light on the future,

This year for the first time Global GastroEconomics Summit will be held at The Atatürk Cultural Center.

This time, with a new perspective in terms of arts and cultural heritage, different disciplines of different art fields are added to the colorful world of the GastroEconomics Summit, from the foyer areas to Cultural Street, from Yeşilçam Cinema to the 2000-seat Türk Telekom Opera Hall where the summit will take place.
