The Vegan Travel Association (VTA) will be holding their second annual Travelling in a New Vegan World Summit (#NVW22) virtual event taking place over 17 days, January 14th – 31st, 2022, and it’s free to participate!

The Vegan Travel Association is a collective of travel professionals who support travellers and travel businesses from all over the world that identify as vegan or plant-based – a first for any association in Canada. The VTA includes businesses from Canada, USA and across the world. The founding organizations/members are Vegan Vacations, Green Earth Travel, World Vegan Travel, Veg Voyages, Vegan Travel Club, Margie Travels, and Jennifer Kern-Kaminsky, CTA.

Veganism is more than just a way of eating” says Jason McGregor, owner of Vegan Vacations. “Vegan travel means you will not be faced with any element of your vacation having an adverse action on animal life – no leather chairs in the room, no feather pillows or comforters on the bed, no “tested on animal” hygiene products in the bathroom and dining options that are designed to support vegan health. The days of only accommodating vegans by removing elements from regular menu items are behind us”.

The Travelling in a New Vegan World Summi will include:

  • Over 40 speakers with a focus on vegan travel

  • Over 40 presentations designed to support and engage vegan travellers

  • Both live and pre-recorded presentations to inspire and educate vegan travellers on what options currently support their travel desires

  • Travel companies showcasing which products they offer that support vegan travellers

We knew there was a huge need to support vegan travellers” says Donna Zeigfinger, owner of Green Earth Travel. “The feedback from the first annual summit was so positive and encouraging. Clients and new prospects alike were thrilled to participate in such a supportive event that it was a no-brainer to carry the summit forward year after year”.

The aim of this year’s summit event is not only to educate and inspire vegan travellers, it will also allow the businesses that support these travellers to connect directly with people from all across the world.
