The Conference is going to be the largest such event in the country. It aims to bridge the barrier between change-makers and consumers so that veganism can be made more widespread. There would be in-depth panel discussions, plenary sessions, inspiring talks, and more to get the conference started. In the second day of the event, there will be “classroom style” workshops with experts and global mentors. One of the notable speakers expected is CEO of PETA India, Dr. Manilal, among many others. Among the many attending brands, PETA India, VegVoyages and White Cub Dairy-Free Ice Creams will be there, just to name a few.

The Goal

The Vegan Conference aims to foster the growing interest surrounding veganism in the world’s largest vegetarian economy. The platform will offer opportunities for B2B and B2C networking, alongside a platform to showcase plant-based services and products.
