GLOBE 2016 – The 14th Conference and Exposition of the GLOBE Series

For the past 25 years, the GLOBE™ Series has served as the nexus for global networking and leadership on the business of the environment.

GLOBE 2016 Conference & Innovation Expo (GLOBE 2016), is the next GLOBE event within the iconic GLOBE Series, North America’s largest and longest-running Conference and Exposition series dedicated to business innovation for the planet. 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’s where innovators come and launch new ideas. Where Corporate America finds solutions. It is where you can begin lasting, high quality relationships that will enhance your business long into the future.


The Prevailing Theme for GLOBE 2016 is “INNOVATION”

A mix of armchair dialogues, roundtables, salon-style gatherings, lively debates, SPARK talks and opportunities for active participation will make the GLOBE 2016 Conference the most exciting GLOBE Conference to date.
