The World Vegan Organisation (WVO) is set to launch its fourth annual vegan conference in India alongside the country’s very first vegan expo.

The Vegan India Conference (VIC) 2019 is a two-day event organized by WVO in partnership with Vegan First, the country’s first print and digital publication for all things vegan.

It is expected to have more than 650 attendees, more than 150 international delegates, around 250 companies and brands, more than 10 institutions, government officials, and vegan celebrities.

According to WVO, VIC 2019 aims to “foster veganism in a unified and strategic way which would benefit vegan businesses, activist projects, foster policy level changes, and help put Indian veganism on the world map.”

“The future is vegan, and we believe now is the time to spread the message and get as many people to join in and experience the potential of the Indian vegan ecosystem,” VIC said in a statement sent to Vegan World News.
