Psssst….between us, we received over 100 submissions when we posted our open call for speakers for the second Vida Vegan Con, in May 2013. The decision-making was SUCH hard work and an ongoing process for several weeks after the deadline closed (this was May 1, 2012—over a year in advance!) We wanted a smaller pool of speakers vs. our 2012 conference, to open more opportunities for our wonderful speakers to share their thoughts, and we now have an utterly amazing list of talented individuals we are stoked to reveal soon.
With that, we thought it was time to more-than-officially leak a few names, because if you’re like us organizers, any whisper of Vida Vegan news is always exciting.
Reflecting the grand list (which will be posted on its own page later this summer, we promise), these folks are passionate individuals who you may recognize as authors, speakers, community leaders, witty writers, bloggers, activists, hosts, 2011 speakers, new folks we’re thrilled to add, and delightful combinations of all and any of the above.
Vida Vegan presents the following speakers for our second conference (in no particular order):
And this is just a sneak peak at the full lineup. More to come! With handy links & all. Tickets (and scholarships!) are still available over here.
See you all back in Portland in May!
If you’re interested in speaking at the August 2014 conference in Chicago, IL, stay tuned for the open call! No need to email us at this time.
