lifetime achievement

The Food Tourism Industry Lifetime Achievement Award from the World Food Travel Association is a prestigious recognition of our industry's most exceptional professionals.

Nominations for the next Lifetime Achievement Awards will reopen in early 2022.

About the award

The award was first introduced in 2020 to recognize exceptional individuals who have made profound, long-lasting contributions to the food and beverage tourism industry throughout their careers. Individuals are nominated by other industry professionals, judges review the applications, and then the Association’s leadership votes on a short list of potential winners. There is no fee to apply, nor are any fees payable by the winner.
