GLOBE SERIES OF CONFERENCES AND TRADE FAIRS
Held every two years since 1990, the GLOBE™ Series of Conferences and Trade Fairs are North America’s largest international gatherings of senior representatives from the public, private and NGO sectors involved in the business of the environment.
Well recognized as the world’s most influential and prestigious international environment industry event series, GLOBE brings people together to discuss current trends and to showcase innovative technology solutions for the world’s environmental problems. Every two years, over 10,000 participants from 80 countries gather in Vancouver, generating over $400 million in new environmental business.
Government decision makers, corporate executives, and environmental technology innovators engage in high-level dialogues about pressing environmental issues such as corporate sustainability, climate change and carbon management, energy, finance, and building better cities. In the past, we have brought in a host of well-respected individuals to help make the business case for eco-efficiency, including HRH Prince Phillipe of Belgium, former Prime Minister Paul Martin, Maurice Strong, Klaus Töepfer, John Prescott, Mark Moody-Stuart, Amory Lovins and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
GLOBE Series events have been used to preview innovative ideas and major multilateral processes for corporate and industry leaders from around the world in advance of major international gatherings such as the Rio and Johannesburg World Summits.
In June 2011, the GLOBE Series launched GLOBE Latin America – a new series of biennial conferences focussed on environmental challenges and business opportunities within Central and South America.
