Το ELIA confest αποτελεί μια καινοτόμο μορφή πολυθεματικής εκδήλωσης, που συνδυάζει την επιστημονική διάσταση ενός Συνεδρίου, με τον πολιτιστικό χαρακτήρα ενός Φεστιβάλ, αλλά και ενός θεματικού event για τον Ελαιοτουρισμό. Οι δύo πρώτες ημέρες θα είναι αφιερωμένες σε ένα επιστημονικό και ακαδημαϊκό συνέδριο σχετικά με την Ελιά, αναφορικά με την τεχνολογία, το περιβάλλον, την υγεία, τις σύγχρονες τάσεις καλλιέργειας και το μάρκετινγκ.

Η τρίτη ημέρα του συνεδρίου θα είναι αποκλειστικά αφιερωμένη στις γαστροτουριστικές εμπειρίες Ελαιοτουρισμού που έχει τη δυνατότητα να προσφέρει το νησί και θα συμμετέχουν εκπρόσωποι από τουριστικά γραφεία από Ελλάδα και εξωτερικό καθώς και εξειδικευμένοι διαμορφωτές της κοινής γνώμης (influencers).

The ELIA confest is an innovative form of multi themed event which combines the academic dimension of a conference with the cultural character of a festival and also of a themed event on olive tourism. The first two days will be devoted to a scientific and academic conference on the olive, dealing with technology, the environment, health, contemporary trends in cultivation, and marketing. Particular importance will be given to development, tourism, culture, sustainability, the connection with the primary sector, local gastronomy, and education.

The third day of the conference will be devoted exclusively to the gastrotourist experiences of olive tourism which the island is able to offer and which will be attended by representatives of tourist agencies from Greece and abroad as well as influencers of public opinion.
