This convention was formally known as the Organic Expo & Green Show but the organisers have re-branded the event SUSTAIN as it now showcases a much larger range of sustainable, natural and organic products and services and also features the participation of some very special guests.
Held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens, Melbourne, SUSTAIN presents a wide range of boutique stalls and exhibitors in one convenient location, including specialist practitioners, producers and growers, manufacturers, retailers and associations from around Australia and abroad.
Showcased products and services will include beauty and skin care, food and beverages (fresh and packaged), cleaning and household products, gardening products, homewares, linen and textiles and fashion and accessories to name but a few.
You can view the full listing of participating boutique stalls and exhibitors here.
In addition to perusing the exhibitors, visitors are invited to participate in a range of special events and activities, including cooking demonstrations, interactive gardening and health and wellbeing workshops and informative public lectures.
SUSTAIN key speakers include Celebrity Chef Pete Evans, Oz Food Trainer, Sandra Dubs, Head Chef of Cabarita Ocean Retreat, Samantha Gowing, The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates and Walter Trupp of Trupp Cooking School.
