PNE Forum, Vancouver

Good to Grow’s annual From The Ground Up Trade Show is back on May 18, 2023 for its 5th year. 2022’s show was a fantastic success as we expanded from 37 exhibitors to 60+ exhibitors. Join us in 2023 for an even bigger show!

From the Ground Up is the only 100% BC trade show connecting our local brands to multiple market channels.

The 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.

We’re looking forward to hosting the best of up-and-coming BC food and beverage brands in the PNE Forum, Vancouver. Stay posted as we share important event dates and exhibitor information.

New applicants to the trade show are juried by an expert panel of food industry professionals.

“It was a great show, and I’ve told all of my colleagues that we will likely end up carrying 90% of the items in the show, which is an unprecedented rate of acceptance. Our company has considered this one of the best shows in the field of many contenders since its inception.”
