FREE BIPOC BUSINESS SUPPORT

In an effort to showcase and support micro and small, BIPOC-owned businesses, we select a handful of BIPOC vendors to participate at no registration or table costs. We do this to support BIPOC-owned businesses, as well as to ensure that we align EDD programs with products and services that complement our core commnity vision. 

FREE  CULINARY TASTING STATIONS

Upon Summit entry, you'll receive 5 color-coded tickets, to be used in exchange for food & beverages at our Culinary Tasting Stations.  There, you'll receive ample, 5 ounce tasting portions of whatever is available at your corresponding, color-coded tasting station while learning about our tasting station chef and their business. Our selected BIPOC tasting station chefs receive an honorarium for generous time and efforts. 

ASK AN EXPERT, BOOKSTORE  &  MORE 

Aside from evidence-based information provided by renowned clinicians, solutions for revolutionary change by our esteemed panelists, extraordinary flavors by our demo chefs and tasting stations and one of a kind goods and services showcased by our vendors and ally partners, we provide an onsite bookstore filled with a mix of free and low cost tools for your plant-based wellness journey as well as an Ask-An-Expert station that provide brief Q & A experiences with clinicians, registered dieticians, coaches and chefs. 

COMMUNITY-MINDED PARTNERS

The reason we're able to bring the caliber of keynote speakers, chefs, panelists, vendors and tasting stations to you at nominal costs is becuase of our ally partners.
