Who Exhibits With Us
As a pre-revenue garage startup without a shipping product, we weighed the investment required to attend Green Festivals versus market research and advertising costs. Attending seven Green Festivals over two years during our product development cycle has transformed our strategy and influenced product development. Even without shipping product, we have attracted almost 1000 Facebook Likes and several hundred mailing list names. The staff has been responsive and supporting, treating our tiny company like family by introducing us to valuable media contacts.
– Solar Greens Company
This was our First Green Festival and needless to say, we will be back next year! The show was amazing, the vendors top notch and we are continuing to get orders from companies and individuals who attended. This is the most important Festival a green company should attend.
– Violets are Blue
Our presence at the DC Green Festival allowed us to personally interact with a
large number of perfect customers for our eco-friendly upholstery. It allowed us to show samples and let people touch and feel our products, taking it offline and to the public. The show staff was very supportive, and everyone we came in contact with was very professional.
– Ken Fonville, EcoSelect Furniture – Custom Leather & Hemp Sofas, Loveseats and Chairs
Green Festival allows our company to successfully connect with inspiring nutritionalists, health coach practitioners, our fans and future consumers. We use this event to grow our brand recognition and market share in each city, and share our product’s story with health-conscious and green-living attendees that Green Festival attracts.
– Siri Baldeep Kaur (Field Marketing Manager for Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips)
The Green Festival is an absolute must for any business serious about growing in a smart and sustainable way. There is no better event to get an edge on competitors by doing the right thing. It's our favorite business event of the year and we absolutely recommend everyone to go.
Brian MacMahon (Pay It Forward Labs)
I would highly suggest that you come to San Francisco and attend Green Festival. This consumer show really gives a boost in sales in the Bay Area stores for about three months after the show.
– Doug Speakman, President of Sunshine Specialties Northern CA
Through the Green Festivals we not only reach our warm market of vegans and vegetarians, but the growing number of consumers interested in new, innovative concepts in many categories, including food! At Green Festivals, we meet a growing number of consumers who are looking for more plant-based food options that are not necessarily vegan or vegetarian. The Green Festival attendee is proactive!
– Eugene Wang, Founder Sophie's Kitchen Vegan Seafood
Since Green Festival, Tomato Sushi has really grown. Our Twitter and Facebook accounts have swelled with followers from all over the world. We have major groups like PETA, Sea Shepard, and Black fish following us! Also, Our Kickstarter campaign is about 50% funded in 2 days! And we are in talks with other backers as well. I wantedto let you know this because our success really speaks to what a great venue the Green Festival is. Being a part of your event completely changed our business into something much more. We would not be where we are today if it were not for the platform that your venue offers. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
– Tomato Sushi
We are so happy to be part of Green Festivals; an event that brings so many environmentally conscious people and forward thinkers together in the same place. Each festival gets better and better; and we love the opportunity to network and be part of a great event.
– Nubian Heritage
The 2014 Green Festival in NYC was our first time participating as a vendor. We found the Green Festival staff and their affiliates very helpful and supportive, permitting us to focus on reaching our target prospects and on growing our business. The event also allowed us to make valuable contacts. The festival attendees showed a lot of interest in Alapure’s products and we saw a nice boost of traffic to our website after the festival. We will definitely be a part of the event in the future!
