Singapore Vegan Festival 2020
21/11/2020 - 22/11/2020Free – $15
Singapore Vegan Festival by EatRoamLive is back in a never seen before avatar – a fully immersive virtual festival where you can shop, eat, learn and have fun, all from the comfort of your home. After the success of the inaugural Singapore Vegan Festival in 2019 which saw over 2000 visitors, a second edition was warranted. In sync with the new normal, this will be a one-of-a-kind festival which will recreate the ultimate vegan experience under a virtual roof. On 21st and 22nd November, the festival will bring together the best of vegan delights in Singapore, across categories, cuisines, and cultures.
While the pandemic won’t allow people to congregate any time soon, it has also nudged the world to find innovative ways to bring communities together. In the same vein, the Singapore Vegan Festival has been gamified in such a way that guests can navigate the convention like they’re actually there. An array of virtual stalls of vegan products, vegan food and beverages will be on offer – think gourmet vegan cheese, gluten and dairy-free desserts, healthy snacks, plant-based meats, cruelty-free skincare, fresh and organic produce and so much more!
Some of the food offerings from last year’s festival
At its core, Singapore Vegan Festival is aimed at spreading awareness about plant-based food and proving that vegan doesn’t have to be boring. In the west, sales of vegan products are increasing at more than 200% each year and a similar boom can be seen in Singapore as well. There is an abundance of fabulous vegan options in Singapore that the Singapore Vegan Festival intends to showcase. Geared towards encouraging vegans to explore fresh options and offer interesting alternatives for those who are curious about a vegan lifestyle, the festival embraces people across their vegan journey.
With an increasing focus on health and wellbeing and an increasing drive to save the planet from the climate crisis, more and more people are being driven to eat less meat. There is finally a global consensus that plants are a healthier and more sustainable way to feed the masses. The festival aims to draw attention to this through amazing vegan food, guest speakers, cooking demonstrations, panel discussions, and an array of stalls of vegan products and services.
The ethical, environmental and health benefits of veganism deserve a platform and the festival is a leap towards that. The event will be hosted on Delegate PLAY, a 3D, immersive virtual environment that emulates an actual convention centre, complete with a virtual lobby, exhibition halls and exhibitor booths. Attendees will be able to visit virtual booths and interact with vendors through multiple touch points that include a resource hub where attendees are able to download product brochures and essential documents, an online availability calendar for booking consultation slots, a virtual meeting room to conduct meetings, a live chat function as well as e-commerce integrations to instantly purchase service offerings from vendors.
Panel discussion at last year’s festival
While the festival is a great opportunity for small businesses to promote a vegan lifestyle through their products, it doesn’t leave behind the amazing vegan-friendly restaurants in Singapore. Restaurants like The Peranakan, Shahi Maharani, Jamie’s Italian, Sufood and The Living Café will run exclusive vegan dine-in specials during the week of the festival. This will allow guests the flexibility to explore and enjoy the special vegan offerings at different restaurants across the city over a period of 10 days.
A highlight will be the cooking demo by renowned vegan chef Damian Piedrahita who has worked across kitchens in Spain & Northern Italy and is currently working at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. Joining us from Italy will be Vegan Luxury Specialist Camilla Parmigiani to discuss Plant-Based Guest Experiences in high-end hospitality, rounding up the current situation and perspectives for the future.
The Singapore Vegan Festival is a flagship event of EatRoamLive, a trailblazing media and events platform catering to those following or seeking to follow a plant-based lifestyle, aiming to make vegan and vegetarian food more accessible and more affordable. With ample food reviews, restaurant suggestions and vegan recipes, along with Vegan Dining Events and Vegan Farmer’s Markets, ERL is leaving no stone unturned in working to create an event that will be an experience to remember for vegans, the intrigued and just about everybody else.
