FOOD FESTIVALS | FOOD AWARDS

FOOD & HOSPITALITY NETWORKS | GASTRONOMIC TOURISM 

With 15 years of experience delivering food and drink events and promotions both in the UK and internationally, here at Sharp Media we know there’s a lot more to a food festival than ‘tents in a field’. 

Whether a one or two day annual outdoor event, or a curated week of venue-hosted bespoke dinners, tastings and trails, a professionally organised food and drink festival delivered by Sharp Media will provide a commerical and cultural focal point not only for your local culinary year but also a hook for your wider gastronimic tourism, place building and circular economy strategies.

Why food & drink events?

  • Food and drink is a shared experience that everyone of all ages and demographic backgrounds can relate to and participate in.

  • Gastronomic tourism is a leading driver of inbound visitors to regions. 

  • Visitors engaging in food tourism tend to have a higher spend, and stay longer including overnight accommodation.

  • The post-Covid recovery and regeneration of town centres is likely to be highly reliant on unique experiential activities such as food and drink.

  • Hospitality businesses and small local producers are notoriously difficult to engage; a food festival creates a focal point for collaborative involvement with a direct economic return for their businesses.

The full package

  • One day to one week events showcasing the best of your local hospitality, food and drink offering.

  • Consultation and engagement with key public, private and third sector stakeholders to define relevant objectives and deliverables..

  • Branding, marketing, design, PR, photography and social media support.

  • Creation and delivery of a practical plan that promotes the uniqueness of your local offering and generates revenue for food and drink businesses.

  • Facilitation of an active and engaged network of local hospitality businesses and regional food and drink producers.

  • Work in partnership with Town Centre Management organisations, local government and existing trade bodies.

  • Generation of relevant sponsorship channels and business investment to reduce core funding requirements.
