Best Organizers

The responsibility falls on the chefs, sponsors, and the team behind Gastronómica. Consuelo Elipe and Carlos Elizondo have taken VNG to the next level, applying their experience of more than 15 years to organize it with the highest quality. Bringing together more than 10,000 people is no easy task. It requires outstanding commitment, teamwork, and difficult decisions that the organizers have been able to make.

"The goal is to improve the event yearly, maintaining its status as a gastronomic benchmark and constantly evolving." Carlos Elizondo

Press conferences will also play a vital role in this event. They were held on August 22 and offered the opportunity to present the crucial details of the event, which generated expectations in the media.

Some were carried out in collaboration with Sauza, a strategic ally that played an essential role in media convening and promotion.
During these press conferences, we revealed the exciting surprises planned for this year. Unique experiences were offered, as in previous editions, through memorable encounters where new culinary proposals were explored, which provided enriching experiences for all participants.

Organizers' Future Plans

After successfully passing the 2023 edition, they will embark on collaborative projects with other Mexican states. As they are in the advanced stages of negotiation, they will take place sometime after this edition. In addition, we will seek to organize smaller and more flexible events, such as the recent "Gourmet Sessions Volume One" aimed at culinary students. The idea is to continue innovating and motivating with new challenges.


Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica 2023 promotes the regional culinary tradition, boosts the industry's growth, and establishes international connections. We can't wait to discover the culinary surprises that await us next year!
