Food trails WA

Tourism WA has developed a couple of presentations to help food and tourism businesses create culinary tourism experiences, in particular food trails.

Produced in conjunction with Retail Consultant John Stanley, the two presentations cover how to use signage to communicate, and how to engage customers.

Communicate with signs - provides hints and tips on how to create signage that will meet the needs of the customer whilst helping them to find and navigate their way around the experience.

Engaging the customer - provides ways in which the business might interact with the customer to enhance engagement.

The presentations are ideal for food producers, wineries, cideries and breweries, that would like to create a food trail or a culinary tourism business.

The presentations are part of the Taste 2020 food and wine strategy, which has been developed by Tourism WA in conjunction with other government departments and industry. The strategy aims to strengthen WA’s position as an internationally recognised destination where you can savour gourmet produce, fresh seafood, premium wines and boutique beverages.
