The World’s First Alternative Protein Event Map by Alternative Proteins Global

Alternative Proteins Global (APG) has announced the launch of the world’s inaugural map dedicated to alternative protein events. This comprehensive tool details 161 events scheduled across the globe from April to December 2024, spanning various formats, including 100 expos, 39 conferences, 21 festivals/markets, and one more.

Crafted by APG, a market research firm within the alternative protein sector, and its founder, Nicholas Dahl, the map represents a significant resource for industry professionals. The tool enables startups, established entities, investors, and various stakeholders to navigate the substantial volume of industry events worldwide, facilitating deeper engagement and understanding of the alternative protein landscape.

Global reach and event diversity

The map’s geographical coverage is extensive, with events listed in regions across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, and Oceania. Highlighted events include the National Restaurant Association Show, Food Ingredients Africa and Asia-China, and Future Food-Tech Alternative Proteins, showcasing the diversity and global reach of the alternative protein industry.

While APG has previously provided annual lists of events, this new digital resource is not merely a listing but an interactive tool designed to enhance accessibility and convenience for its users. By providing details on the location and specifics of each event, APG aims to bolster industry networking, knowledge exchange, and innovation.

Informed by industry insights

APG’s initiative is informed by a wealth of industry insights, including exclusive data shared with vegconomist in the past. Alternative protein investments soared to $1.008 billion in the first half of a recent year, with Europe accounting for two-thirds of global investments. This substantial European investment is mirrored in the abundance of alternative protein events across the continent.

Last year, the United States hosted the most alternative protein events, followed by China and then Germany. This year, the United States and Germany still top the list, but with many events in countries including The UK, The Netherlands, Canada, Spain, Japan, and India. The distribution of events across continents showcases the significant investment and interest in alternative proteins globally.
