PNE Forum, Vancouver

Good to Grow’s 5th annual From The Ground Up Trade Show is back on May 18, 2023 in the PNE Forum, Vancouver. From the Ground Up is the only 100% BC trade show connecting our local brands to multiple market channels.

Our 2022 show was a fantastic success as we expanded from 37 exhibitors to 60+ exhibitors. Join us as an exhibitor or attendee this year for an even bigger show!

This industry-only 100% B.C. local trade show connects new and innovative B.C. food and beverage brands to buyers, distributors, brokers, chefs, media, and other food industry supporters to showcase and support the incredible processors, producers, and food landscape right here in B.C.

“As a new local business, I couldn’t recommend the From the Ground Up trade show enough. The communication and organization made the preparation process seamless. We made so many beautiful connections from buyers, publications, brokers, distributors and more. We are already looking forward to next year!”

“I really enjoyed the tradeshow. The set up was perfect, just enough attendees but not too many to make it overwhelming, and the displays and products were well-covered and I happily found many new businesses for article consideration.”
