The Culinary Association of Wales has the pleasure in announcing to the membership of WorldChefs that we have submitted our bid to host the WorldChefs Congress 2024 in Wales.

Wales is a small country but we have big ambitions.
We are a confident, forward-looking European nation, with long-standing and deep-seated relationships with our closest neighbours. Our greatest assets are our people - the three million plus people who live in Wales, including many from the EU and further afield, who have chosen to make Wales their home.

Ours is a country full of inquisitive, skilled, creative and loyal people, working in a diverse economy stretching from the Atlantic coastline to the English border.

The Culinary Association of Wales was formed in 1993 and we secured full membership of WorldChefs at WorldChefs Congress in Kyoto Japan in 2002.

We are a very active member of WorldChefs and in 2017 we hosted the WorldChefs European Presidents Conference and in 2019 we hosted the WorldChefs Board Meeting.

If you are attending #IKA2020 then please visit our Food and Drink Showcase in the WorldChefs Village and speak directly to some of the team who are leading the bid committee who can update you on our exciting plans to deliver for you a WorldChefs Congress that aligns with our vision to project Wales as a globally responsible nation.

Our ground-breaking Well-being of Future Generations Act underlines our commitment to sustainability.

WALES IS WAITING FOR YOU! #WorldChefsCongress2024Wales
