JD Events: Plant Based World Launches in the UK

Share

Following the huge success of the Plant Based World Conference & Expo in New York, organiser JD Events is delighted to announce the launch of Plant Based World Europe in London in 2020.

The UK is Europe’s largest market for plant-based foods, valued at £470m versus $4.5bn in the US, and is growing at an exponential rate. Adoption of a plant-based lifestyle is sweeping the globe as people everywhere are becoming aware of the human health, environmental and ethical implications of consuming more plant-based products. One in six food products launched in the UK in 2018 carried a vegan claim.

“The fundamental shift away from animal product consumption towards more wholesome, plant-based options is our opportunity as a society to create a healthier world for future generations”, commented Ben Davis, Content & Communications Director, Plant Based World Conference & Expo. “Our goal at PBW is to accelerate this shift by providing a professional platform for the global plant-based market to blossom. This message resonated deeply with our inaugural audience in New York and we look forward to bringing the ultimate plant-based experience to London in 2020.”

Plant Based World Europe will be the only European B2B focused event to bring together plant-based product producers and manufacturers, with retailers, distributors, food service providers, restauranteurs, entrepreneurs, investors and healthcare professionals. The event will feature “Community Day” on Day 2, which will provide access to the general public alongside the industry audiences.

This unique event will combine a world-class Conference, with an international Exhibition, high-level Networking and Tasting Opportunities.

Date: 16th-17th October 2020

Location: Business Design Centre, London

Produced in association with industry experts, the Conference will cater to three key audience groups;

  • Business Professionals – Including retailers, restauranteurs, institutional foodservice operators, distributors, investors and brands focused on accelerating the adoption and expansion of plant-based products and options onto store shelves and restaurant menus
