About our keynotes:

Why we chose the Salt Palace:

The Salt Palace is conveniently located in downtown Salt Lake City, a short walk from hotels and several plant-based restaurants. There are two TRAX stops located one-half block away, and the airport is just a 20-minute drive.

"Responsibility to the environment" is one of the Salt Palace's core values. Adopting a zero-waste mentality, the Salt Palace "aims to put at least half of the materials that come through their building back into the community via reusing and recycling." Additionally, the convention center boasts a 600,000 square-foot rooftop solar array. Plant Based Utah is working closely with the Salt Palace to ensure our symposium is as green as possible.

The Salt Palace has partnered with Utah Food Services as their in-house caterer. Utah Food Services is a “Clean Utah” company. They think about the environment in everything they do, from sourcing local food to offering compostable greenware. They also donate food leftovers to Catholic Community Services and all green waste is sent to compost for growing more food.

We are excited to work with a venue that shares our values. Thanks to their sustainable efforts, we're proud to say our symposium is a renewable energy driven event.

Stay tuned for more details and updates!
