The first VeggieWorld took place in China. We were able to look forward to a more than successful premiere together with exhibitors and visitors. With almost 50 stamps from 7 countries, the first edition was naturally still quite clear. The rush of visitors from end consumers, but especially from trade visitors, was impressive. The exhibitors were satisfied, the visitors feasted and bought and the press reported on it.
VeggieWorld started in 2011 with 21 exhibitors in Wiesbaden and was a success story from day one. The exhibition hall was overrun by visitors and daily news and daily topics reported.
Since Wellfairs was acquired in November 2014, expansion has been a top priority. In 2016 Wellfairs already organized 9 trade fairs at 8 locations in 4 countries.
From 2017 there were already 6 trade fairs in Germany and another 10 in other European countries.
VeggieWorld is a fair for everyone – and that is exactly what it says here. The organizers emphasize that in addition to vegans and vegetarians, especially flexitarians and people who regularly eat meat are welcome.
“Meat eaters in particular may not even know what incredible possibilities vegan cuisine offers. That is exactly our approach: do not persuade, but convince, ”says Wellfairs Managing Director Hendrik Schellkes.
But VeggieWorld also offers trade visitors such as restaurateurs, retailers or wholesalers a wide range. “Many retailers or restaurateurs are not yet familiar with the many small factories among our exhibitors, as they have not been listed anywhere yet,” added Schellkes.
What can visitors expect?
The full program awaits visitors at VeggieWorld: You can try out at many stands, stock up on vegan dishes and ingredients for the next few weeks – often at fair prices. The most important thing when shopping or tasting is personal contact with the respective manufacturers. Like no other, the manufacturer can provide important information on ingredients and composition and talk about health effects.
In addition to the exhibitors, visitors can look forward to a rich, varied and informative supporting program. The supporting program consists of lectures, cooking shows and workshops.
Yes, and then VeggieWorld offers vegan people in particular a unique meeting point – a meeting point for like-minded people. At VeggieWorld, every vegan can feast to their heart’s content without having to worry about ingredients and ingredients.
