DAVAA Events /Food and Drink Network Event


September 9, 2019 @ 1:45 pm

Working to improve the development of Dundee as a tourism destination needs all those businesses involved in providing a great visitor experience to come together. The Dundee Food & Drink Network offers the opportunity for the local food and drink service industry to have a voice, to collaborate and to be represented in the work that drives success for ‘Scotland’s Coolest City’

Join us at V&A Dundee as we launch the missing part of the collaborative puzzle for Dundee’s leisure tourism sector; a collective voice for the hard working professionals working to provide great food and drink options for visitors to the city. They are the restaurants, the bars and the cafes that feed and inspire the tastebuds and help to make a visit to Dundee a truly great one and one that’ll make them come back for more.
