There will also be networking opportunities, designed to connect attendees with job opportunities, investment opportunities, and mentorship.
This year’s event will feature both indoor and outdoor event spaces. There will be a festival-style courtyard, marketplace, networking alley, food trucks, and a premium activation space for brands.
“We are thrilled to bring the Vegan Women Summit back, bigger and better than ever!,” Stojkovic said in a statement. “More than half of our attendees are actually not vegan, which I think is a huge win. In fact, our mission at VWS is to showcase not only the lifestyle opportunities, but the incredible business case for the vegan food, fashion, and beauty industries.”
