Termatalia's 14th Expo, a forum for education, training and business development for destinations, tour operators and suppliers, was held in Argentina this year. Nearly 2,500 professionals and 217 exhibitors represented 28 countries with a total of 10,600 visitors including consumers & students. Leading industry experts presented as speakers and gave specialized courses and over 500 business appointments were conducted. There were 25 tour operators and media coverage from Europe, North America and South America.  As Editor of WTJ & Founder of WTW, I was excited to release La Guia Para Vender Viajes de Salud y Bienestar (The Guide to Selling Wellness Travel, Spanish Edition)  and to be a media sponsor, speaker and exhibitor for such a leading event in health and wellness travel.

North Festival: A Taste of Stockholm in LA

Chef Anton Bjuhr & Chef Jacob Holstrom of the famed Michelin rated restaurant Gastrologik flew in to LA to create an amazing and fabulous 16 course tasting for media. They say that food is one of the best ways to get to know a culture and I can honestly say, I can't wait to visit Sweden as a result of this awesome introduction! Artful, innovative, selective. I had several favorites including lichen, sour cream and roe served on a spoon and spruce (pine needle) ice cream, apples and berries which Chef Jacob as kind enough to share and we'll be including in our December newsletter, along with his interview and a spotlight on Stockholm. Many thanks to Visit Sweden, Stockholm Visitors Bureau and Austere Co. for making the event so much fun!
