BITEG 2014


The 2014 edition of BITEG – International Food&Wine Tourism Exchange – will take place in Novara, Broletto monumental complex.


May 15th to 19th, 2014. The two-days workshop will be held May 16th and 17th.


The location for this year’s professional workshop was chosen to focus on the rice production chain, also in view of the forthcoming Expo 2015 as an opportunity to develop tourism in Piedmont. Another key theme are Piedmont’s top-class golf courses, which will be the protagonists at the informal networking evening on 16th May, at Bogogno Golf Club.


Some 150 Italian sellers, including consortiums, product clubs, incoming agencies, local tourist systems, wine routes, hotel and other hospitality groups and chains and individual structures with distinctive features, will meet  90 Italian and foreign buyers from about 20 countries: Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, UK, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Russia, Canada, USA.


The event is sponsored by the Italian Ministries of Economic Development and of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies and by the Italian National Tourist Board – ENIT. BITEG is organised by Piedmont Region through its in-house company Sviluppo Piemonte Turismo, in collaboration with the Local Tourist Board for Novara. The buyers’ tours of the region are organised in partnership with all the Local Tourist Boards in Piedmont.
