Canada's largest Plant-Based Lifestyle Expo returns to Vancouver June 4 & 5 – Foodology

On June 4th and 5th, notable speakers, special events and over 200 plant-based companies will gather for a weekend of education and enlightenment at Planted Expo in Vancouver.
“Public awareness continues to grow as to how plant-based choices can positively impact lives,” said Stevan Mirkovich, Co-Owner and Chief Relational Officer. “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.”
Planted Expo has gathered leading voices in the culinary, scientific and fitness world to speak on the importance of plant-based choices. These insightful, informative, and inspirational speakers will be at Planted Expo alongside 200 plant-based edible and lifestyle businesses.
Adds Mirkovich, “Planted Expo in November was a tremendous success in Vancouver emphasizing the desire of individuals wanting to learn more about plant-based options. 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.”
Planted Expo attendees will have an opportunity to discover the many ways they are able to incorporate plant-based choices into their daily lives. Two speakers of note coming to Vancouver in June are Filmmaker/Director Ali Tabrizi and Vegan Women Summit Founder Jennifer Stojkovic.
Ali Tabrizi is a Filmmaker and Director best known for his Netflix Original documentary Seaspiracy. Growing up on the Southeast coast of England, he spent much of his early childhood exploring the world with his camera, daydreaming about the ocean and the hidden world beneath the waves. His teen years were spent learning about global issues and studying Art & Design and Arts History at Canterbury College followed by his own interest in teaching himself filmmaking. That interest, combined with his desire to expose the truth about environmental issues led him to create the Netflix Original documentary, Seaspiracy. He continues to share these truths through speaking engagements.
Jennifer Stojkovic has built her career as an internationally-recognized community relations leader for the world’s largest tech companies in the capital of innovation, San Francisco. During her career in tech, Jennifer became increasingly interested in blending her passion for change in the food system with her experience and network in Silicon Valley. In early 2018, Jennifer launched a “Future of Food” series of partnerships bringing together CEOs and founders from leading tech brands, including WeWork and Airbnb, with emerging CEOs from the burgeoning food tech industry to establish food as the “Tech 2.0”. In early 2020, she launched the Vegan Women Summit, the world’s first events and media organization dedicated to empowering, educating, and inspiring women to bring compassion to their careers.
