Getting the most out of GastroTerra membership

How do I get the most out of my membership in GastroTerra?

GastroTerra is where you can learn, share, network, and find inspiration with other members of the Association. Depending on the type of membership you have, you can search for and contact members who might be prospects for your business; pose questions to the community at large and explore the knowledge library.


Free members can search for members in the member list, post their own introductions, comment on/like most posts within the community, and ask questions or make comments in the general community forum. Free members can also download free reports and attend free events.


Premium individual members have all the free benefits, plus they get additional benefits such as access to our knowledge library (1000+ culinary tourism documents of all kinds), attend one FoodTreX event each year, attend monthly member Town Hall meetings, and more. We also offer premium business memberships which give additional benefits and visibility at the business level. Sign up first as a free member, and then upgrade to the plan of your choice as shown below. The benefits and pricing for all membership types are explained in this location:
