Plant Based World Expo Returns to New York City This Fall

Plant Based World Expo (PBW), the only 100 percent plant-based trade event for foodservice and retail professionals, returns to New York on December 9-10, 2021, at the Javits Center. The must-attend B2B event features the biggest names in plant-based food and an opening keynote with leaders from Kroger, PBFA, and Compass Group.

Registration is open and trade professionals can register to attend the expo for free.

Attendees can take advantage of:

  • Meeting 250+ plant-based suppliers in the Exhibit Hall
  • Tasting the latest plant-based food innovations
  • Thought-provoking Keynote Sessions on both show days
  • Educational sessions in the Learning Garden Theater
  • High-level networking opportunities with peers and industry colleagues

The opening keynote panel, Growth of the Plant Based Industry, will be moderated by Nil Zacharias, founder of Eat for the Planet and features Rachel Dreskin, CEO, Plant Based Foods Association; Susie Weintraub, CEO, Envision Group, A Division of Compass Group; and Holly Adrien, Natural and Organics Strategy and Innovation Manager, Kroger. They will discuss the progress and growth of the plant-based category and preview what’s ahead. Attendees will learn how major retailers, foodservice operators, and suppliers are evolving their business and the whole industry. 

“The plant-based industry continues to grow and innovate at a breakneck pace, and Plant Based World Expo is the only place to experience all that the industry has to offer under one roof,” says Benjamin Davis, VP of Content at PBW. “So much has happened since our last conference in 2019, and we can’t wait to bring the latest plant-based products to decision makers and educate them on how these foods will improve their bottom line and the health of the people they serve.”
