Lake Garda lands in Innsbruck with an event that will bring gastronomy, entertainment, and lake traditions to Austria. Gardasee Expo is born, and from April 25th to 27th, exhibitors and visitors will enjoy a unique experience. The event will be inaugurated on April 26th at 12 p.m. with a party featuring the presence of local and Italian authorities, as well as local artists and musical groups.

The event will take place at the XVI century Imperial Palace, where an exhibition space of about 500 m2 will be allocated to display the richness of Italian lakeside locales. The exhibition’s pulsating heart will be a 14-meter truck hospitality, which includes an LED screen reflecting magnificent Lake Garda vistas. This venue will not only hold meetings and cooking classes, but it will also serve as a gathering and sharing area for lake and cultural aficionados.

To kick off Gardasee Expo, one of Austria’s most prestigious Italian restaurants, Il Convento in Innsbruck, will host “Gardasee Expo Week,” which will include a lunch menu highlighting the event’s featured products as well as information about the exhibition.

However, Gardasee Expo will not be limited to the exhibition: on Friday, April 26th, at 8:30 p.m., at the Metropol Kino cinema in Innsbruck, the documentary film “Ride back to best age” by Innsbruck director Hermann Weiskopf will be screened.

Exhibitors have responded enthusiastically, with renowned brands such as Grana Padano, Consorzio Tutela Radicchio di Verona I.G.P., Parco Natura Viva, Gardaland, Cantina Ca’ del Sette, Colle d’Oro sul Lago, Forno Bonomi, Pastificio Avesani, Pepi Dora la Patata dal Cuore Veneto, and La Casara Roncolato, among others. This reflects Italian enterprises’ ambition to access the Austrian market, which is known to value Made in Italy food and wine goods while also accounting for a considerable portion of tourist flows to our region.
