Why plant-based?
A societal shift towards plant-based living has the capacity to improve human health, create a more sustainable environment and fix a broken agricultural system. By focusing entirely on the plant-based movement and opening the conversation to anyone looking to make even a minor shift in their business or lifestyle, we will make connections and come up with creative solutions to make the world healthier for the future of humankind. 

Why an all plant-based trade show?
The shift towards plant-based living is sweeping the globe and rapidly changing the world as we know it. While there are an abundance of consumer events focused on an already-converted vegetarian community and a handful of trade shows featuring some plant-based products, it is time for the movement as a whole to have a professional space to call home. Plant Based World is the only event with an educational experience and expo floor focused on all things plant-based that is designed for a mainstream audience.

Why is Plant Based World geared towards a mainstream audience?
While we fully support those businesses and individuals who have chosen to commit 100% to a plant-based lifestyle, we recognize that true change is a process and embracing all efforts to make the world more plant-based is essential to furthering the movement as a whole. Whether you are a business looking to offer more plant-based options to your customers, a doctor wanting to give your patients and alternative approach to their own health or an individual trying to eat just one more plant-based meal a week - Plant Based World is a welcoming space where you can learn to do just that!

What is Community Day?
Community day is Saturday, June 8, 2019 and is open to the general public. Members of the public will have the opportunity to walk the expo floor and attend keynotes.  The Full Community Day pass also included the Community Track Programming.
