Enjoy fresh, plant-based food and drinks (kombucha, juice, water, wine, cocktails and more)

Browse

Check out the attendee directory before, during and after the event. It’s like a vegan version of Linkedin! Participation in directory is optional.

Relax

Get off your feet and chill out! Tables and chairs will be provided. The music will play at a volume conducive to meaningful conversations. Take a load off and enjoy the company.

Make Meaningful Connections

Expo West has a reputation for being a bit chaotic and overwhelming. Over 80,000 people attend and there are over 3,000 exhibitors. It’s hard to find the right people and have in-depth conversions. Attention spans are short and everyone’s feet hurt.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you were in a quiet space with vegan professionals who want to learn more about you and your business? Especially if you didn’t have to yell over loud music or try to grab their attention on the trade show floor?

That’s what you’ll experience at this networking event.

Come connect with vegan professionals and new friends in a quiet, relaxed environment. Have valuable conversations over plant-based food and drinks.

You’ll meet influencers, members of the press, brand owners, service providers, consultants, manufacturers and more vegans at Expo West.
