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 Series is the world’s largest and longest-running Conference and Exposition series dedicated to Business Innovation for the Planet. A world-leading sustainability conference coupled with an exciting B2B Innovation Expo, 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”
The new GLOBEX INNOVATION EXPO will be closely integrated with the GLOBE 2016 conference program to ensure maximum interaction with Conference delegates. GLOBEX will provide you with incredible business opportunities by bringing solution providers and potential partners from around the world together under one roof. Challenges will be raised, solutions will be found, and business relationships will be solidified.
New Networking Opportunities, More Interaction
A dynamic hub conducive to deal making of all types, GLOBEX will bring together buyers with innovators in a co-creation environment to accelerate innovation.
Conference coffee breaks will happen right in the Expo hub along with a selection of workshops, training forums, and special sessions- all geared towards creating multiple opportunities for conference delegates and visitors to spend time on the Exposition floor.
The new GLOBEX INNOVATION EXPO is fully integrated with the GLOBE 2016 conference program to ensure you receive maximum foot traffic and exposure. GLOBEX will provide you with incredible business opportunities by bringing solution providers and buyers from around the world together under one roof.

Multi-sectoral by design, GLOBE is where you have a chance to stand out – meet senior corporate executives from a multitude of sectors, leaders from all levels of government, financiers and venture capitalists seeking new investment opportunities, and media from around the world.
What is It?
For the first time, the new GLOBEX Innovation Expo will be hosting an exciting Challenge-Pitch Forum directly on the exposition floor. Business, government, industry associations, and consortia will have the opportunity to sponsor sector ‘challenges’. The Sponsors will define the performance requirements, GLOBE will assist with aligning potential solutions providers.
How It Works
Sponsored challenges will be woven into a sophisticated B2B software platform. Through this platform, solution providers can view the various challenges, and create a pitch independently or with partners. This takes the B2B platform beyond an introduction tool and provides an opportunity to forge concrete partnerships while enabling transactional deals. The B2B platform will be featured on the GLOBE 2016 website well in advance of GLOBEX, allowing ample time for relationship building prior to the event.
