Tapas is a word recognized worldwide as a symbol of the Spanish gastronomy. They are an important part of the Spanish gastronomical culture as they are consumed across the country and they prove the passion for life of Spaniards, because tapas are not only about enjoying good food, but also about sharing and socializing.
This year, World tapas Day celebrations, an annual event hosted each year on the third Thursday of June, was celebrated across 31 countries within Europe, America and Asia where more than 70 marketing and communication activities with media and consumers were held in collaboration with 733 restaurants and more than 100 sponsors and partners worldwide.
