Vegan Business Tribe Live Returns to VegFestUK London with “Rockstar” Speaker Lineup

After a hugely successful premiere in 2022, Vegan Business Tribe Live returns to VegFestUK London 2023 with a speaker lineup of vegan business owners, including the founders of THIS, One Planet Pizza, and Better Nature.

Organised by the online vegan business support community Vegan Business Tribe and sponsored by Vegan Accountants, the programme features live events, panels, workshops, and networking to “showcase the best of the vegan scene and help those looking to grow a vegan business.”

“I attended the first Vegan Business Tribe Live last year with some ideas about setting up my own business. A year on, I’m now running an award-winning food business in Bristol and am already expanding. The information I learned at the event was crucial for getting me off the ground,” comments Jason Rustage, founder of Gourmet Poke.

However getting expert speakers like Andy Shovel from THIS and Chris Kong from Better Nature Tempeh to join us on stage has helped us build an unmissable rockstar lineup,” said David Pannell, organiser and founder of Vegan Business Tribe.

VegFestUK London 2023 will take place at London Olympia from the 18th to the 19th of November. VegFestUK is celebrating its 20th year in business since it launched as Bristol Vegan Fayre in November 2003.
