With the rise in meat-free proteins, Europe’s first dedicated plant-based event will launch in London next year.

Following a series of successful events in the US, the European version of the Plant Based World Expo will offer industry professionals the unique opportunity to hear from the world’s leading plant-based experts and discover more about the incredible innovation taking place.

A curated conference programme will equip retailers, distributers, food service providers, entrepreneurs, investors and healthcare professionals with take-home insights on how to capitalise on the unique business and health opportunities that the sector presents.

Talking about plant-based food alternatives is all well and good, but nothing beats being able to try it first-hand. Visitors are invited to explore the Culinary Theatre where they will be able to experience various alternative foods with dishes cooked by professional chefs.

Elsewhere, the conference programme will allow visitors to participate in educational seminars designed to demonstrate the business power of the plant-based industry, with influential speakers from across the food and beverage industry.

Real-life case studies of successful implementation of plant-based options in retail and food services will further offer visitors the chance to ask questions and seek advice from leading experts.

“It is incredibly exciting to be able to officially announce the first Plant Based World Expo in Europe. The plant-based sector is growing at such a rapid pace and we are proud to represent the industry with Europe’s only dedicated B2B event,” said Jonathan Morley, Managing Director of the show organiser JD Events.

“With so much happening, from leading exhibitors to a number of show features, including exclusive tastings, the event will showcase the very best of plant-based.”

Plant Based World Expo will take place at the Business Design Centre on 8 – 9 April 2021.
