Dinner & Discuss

February 10, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Penobscot Bay Language School for a Dinner & Discuss event in Rockland (28 Gay Street) on Thursday, February 10, 2022 featuring a meal prepared by visiting tourism professional Bianca Corti (Florence, Italy). The four course meal includes authentic Tuscan cuisine and regional (Italian) wine paired with the meal. The event will also include a discussion about the changing tourism economy (near and far) and what the future looks like for intercultural tourism in a COVID aware world.

The current global pandemic has decimated tourism economies worldwide over the past two years with massive labor shortages, international travel restrictions, global politics, and so many other challenges. How do we reimagine a sustainable global tourism economy that can survive the uncertainties of the future?

With Maine’s tourism industry strongly tied to the global tourism economy through several international work visa programs canceled (or extremely limited) during the pandemic, many small businesses have endured more than just lost clientele, but the needed workforce to serve the much smaller crowds of visitors over the past two years. Join us as we explore how the local and global tourism markets are surviving through the current crisis and looking to the future with new ideas–all while enjoying a delicious meal based on the culinary traditions of Tuscany!
