Why Your Visit Is Worth It
As we’ve mentioned, Taste of London enjoys a high turnout – more than ideal conditions to reach a new audience, boost visibility for your dining establishment or profile as a chef, and generally generate some direct sales. There’s much to be gained from your participation since there are:
- 2 editions per year;
- 50,000 visitors in June and 28,000 visitors in November;
- 8 sessions of festival programming in June and 6 sessions in November;
- 100,000 readers of the festival’s newsletter.
Taste of London was first conceived as an annual event, which took place only once a year at the Regent’s Park, but became so popular that organisers created a special winter edition with a festive theme in November held at East London’s Tobacco Dock. The festival has been going since 2004 and has risen to be the ultimate guide for food culture and dining spots in London. Even Michelin starred restaurants have a stand at the festival. Back in 2011, there was a special edition of Taste of London called the Big Feastival that combined food with live musical performances. Visitors are treated to menu samples from a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars, and there are even small markets for produce and artisanal products.
