EDUCATION SESSIONS AND COOKING DEMOS

If your business involves food and beverage,
this is the show for you.

Thousands of professionals from big-box stores, specialty shops, restaurants, the noncommercial dining sector and more come to Plant Based World Expo to see (and sample) the latest trends in plant-based, from whole-muscle meat alternatives to keto and clean-label options.

Chefs & Restaurants

Get inspired during demos, talk ingredients with manufacturers and find what you need to make your menu stand out now, when over 48% of restaurants are offering plant-based alternatives.

Retailers

With 64% of shoppers purchasing plant-based products more than once per month, having hot new items on your shelves drives more sales. Find the next must-haves on the expo floor, then make them part of your merchandise mix before other stores.  

Grocery & Specialty Food Stores

More than 60% of shoppers spend over $10 per trip on plant-based items. Source the products that will appeal to this high-value consumer segment (like keto, sustainably produced and clean-label options) and differentiate your offerings in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Education & Healthcare

Find good-for-you options that align with different dietary needs and legislative requirements, without sacrificing taste. No matter what you need to take your dining program to the next level, it’s here.

Hotels & Resorts

Delight your guests with unexpected plant-based menu options that will make them want to order room service or dine on-site.

Sports & Entertainment Arenas

Boost your revenue by offering plant-based food and beverage options that eliminate the need to eat before the show or big game.

Meal Kit Services

With so many choices in the meal kit market, it’s critical that your menus include plant-based dishes that aren’t the same as your competitors’. That starts with sourcing unique, exciting products.

Airlines

Plant-based has really taken off — which means more passengers are looking for in-flight snacks and meals that skip the meat and dairy. Build loyalty by providing them with choices they won’t find elsewhere.

Government Officials

Meet the people shaping the next evolution of plant-based, so that you have more firsthand information for shaping policies that impact the industry.

Convenience Stores

Make it easier for customers to find snack and meal options that align with their needs, when they need them, and watch your revenue increase.

Every trend  in every category

Be the first to try just-launched items, discuss proven best-sellers with the people behind them and make invaluable industry connections, all at one event.

What can you expect from your Experience?Find out now!



  • My customers (largely Gen Z) want to eat healthier, are concerned about animal welfare, or truly understand the environmental impact of conventional animal products.  They are looking for these alt products and if we don’t offer them, they will go somewhere else.  PBW allows me to source that super-cool new thing Gen Z is looking for
    – Rob Morasco, Sodexo

  • PBW really allows somebody like me to key in on the plant-based movement and make sure that we’re not missing any future star players. 
    — Rodd Willis, Dot Foods

  •  

    This kind of show where you have the time to talk face to face with people, and really have good conversations, and learn the why, behind why they started their company, is incredibly valuable to find the mission aligned companies we want to work with.  – Erin Harper, Director of Global Merchandising, Grocery Dairy, Whole Foods Market
