Plant Based News is delighted to announce it will be at VegFest on October 21 and 22.

The festival - one of the country's largest and most vibrant vegan events - brings together a wealth of producers, activists, and more.

PBN will be located on the second floor, at stand number WJ6.


PBN co-founder, Robbie Lockie, said: "We are extremely excited to be making our VegFest debut - we absolutely love what Tim [Barford - VegFest Founder] has achieved, and can't wait to be part of it.

"This is going to be a great opportunity to meet some of our readers, and hopefully spread the word about Plant Based News to create more readers.

"It's always great when the community comes together and this will be no exception. We'd love people to drop by our stall where they can find out more about what we're doing."

'Biggest vegan event'

VegFest founder Tim Barford added: "VegfestUK is very happy to welcome Plant Based News on board for our flagship London event at Olympia – the biggest vegan event in the UK this year. 

"Vegfest is very much about helping provide platforms for new and up and coming vegan businesses organisations and projects to really step up and show off, and we’ve no doubt PBN will be doing just that.

"They have really impressed with their widespread professional coverage of all things vegan since their conception earlier this year and grown really quickly.

"It will be great to see PBN in the company of some top vegan outfits as they take their place in the Main Hall in front of 12 to 14,000 visitors."

PBN will be located on the second floor, at stand number WJ6. You can buy VegFest tickets here
