GLOBE Week: The days on either side of the main leadership summit are now teeming with activities and special side events—think meetings, workshops, and roundtables. There’s simply no better time or place for your team to meet up.

More Fun: With big brands and whole economies committing and recommitting to bold action, there’s a lot to celebrate. We’re turning the fun up to 11 with live music, entertainment, adventures, day trips, cocktail shindigs, dinners, and more.

GLOBE MaX: We know your time in Vancouver is precious. Our dedicated smartphone app will help you identify and reach out to promising connections before, during, and after GLOBE 2016.

A world-leading sustainability GLOBE Conference coupled with an exciting GLOBE Innovation Exposition, GLOBE is about relationship building to fuel your business. It’s about thinking outside the box. It’s where leaders come to devise winning strategies to conserve resources, ignite innovation, and develop ideas and partnerships that help them be more resilient, more efficient, and reduce risk.

Taking place every two years in Vancouver, Canada, GLOBE draws the ‘best and brightest’ of the international sustainable business community, making it an unsurpassed forum for learning and networking.

With an exciting vibe and an international flair, GLOBE is not only the undisputed thought leader worldwide, it’s where future markets are shaped, and public policy is fostered.

It is where you can begin lasting, high quality relationships that will enhance your business long into the future.
