Planted Expo was last in Vancouver this past fall and the event was a big hit, according to Stevan Mirkovich, co-owner and chief relational officer.

“Planted Expo in November was a tremendous success in Vancouver emphasizing the desire of individuals wanting to learn more about plant-based options,” said Mirkovich in a release. “We are thrilled to bring this event back to Vancouver in June and expect even more public interest now that many of the provincial health restrictions are lifting.”

The expo also features a lineup of notable speakers from around the world. Guests will hear from leading voices in the culinary, science, and fitness worlds and learn about the importance of plant-based choices.



Filmmaker and Director Ali Tabrizi (Netflix Original documentary Seaspiracy), and Vegan Women Summit Founder Jennifer Stojkovic are just two of the many presenters who will share tips on how plant-based choices can be incorporated into daily lives.

“Public awareness continues to grow as to how plant-based choices can positively impact lives,” said  Mirkovich. “A plant-based lifestyle is more than just what you eat, it’s about lifestyle choices too.

“At Planted Expo, attendees can hear from speakers about ways to enhance their own lives and learn how these lifestyle changes can affect the world around them.”
