Spring is just around the corner and with it returns We Are FaceFood, Ibiza’s international gastronomic event. The restaurant, hotel and catering sector’s most-awaited event on the White Island will serve as a meeting point for some of the finest premium brands of the moment, restaurateurs, chefs and hotel and catering professionals. The fifth edition of We Are FaceFood Ibiza, an essential gastronomic event for professionals in the sector, will take place on 10 March from 11 am to 6 pm, in the gardens of the Agroturismo Atzaró Hotel & Spa.

Sustainability, the digitalisation of the restaurant sector and Ibiza’s place on the international gastronomic map will be the key themes of the fifth edition of We Are FaceFood. Created and organised by FaceFoodMag, sponsored by Estrella Damm and co-sponsored by Balfegó and Moët Hennessy, the event welcomes a new edition having established itself as a tradition that kicks off the season for hospitality professionals in Ibiza and Formentera.

Rounding off the “Cooking” section of the programme will be Juanjo López (La Tasquita de Enfrente, two Repsol suns).
