GLOBE brought people together from diverse sectors across the economy, including corporate executives, strategic investors, cleantech entrepreneurs, young trailblazers and government leaders for unparalleled networking opportunities.
Participants came to GLOBE to:
Every session, activity, networking break and exhibit was focused on creating a big impact — for business, for the economy and for the planet.
GLOBE 2020 was a turning point in the conversation about the clean economy.
Corporations, all levels of government, NGOs, international agencies, technology innovators, and the finance community met at GLOBE to invest, learn, do deals, find solutions and get inspired.
I’ve been to GLOBE several times, and one of the things I love is the trade show; seeing all the innovative companies and the different things they’re trying to do to make a difference. Making the environment part of the bottom line is the right way to do business.
It makes sense to be here at GLOBE to talk to stakeholders that are interested in climate change. We’ve been meeting a substantial amount of people coming by the booth, talking to them after presentations, and learning from them. It’s been a really positive experience for us.
GLOBE has been an amazing experience. It has reaffirmed my faith in bridging that generational gap between the existing establishment, and the new up-and-coming young talent that are trying to make real change happen. We’ve connected with some of the top politicians. This is an amazing technology showcase. It’s been a humbling experience and very uplifting.
For the first time ever, GLOBE dedicated a full day to business-to-business (B2B) networking and transactions focused on cleantech.
GLOBE Exchange connected capital and market opportunities with innovation to accelerate the transition to the clean economy. It featured curated matchmaking (innovator to investor, investor to investor and innovator to government), coaching for growth, investor presentations, meeting opportunities through our app, and networking activities.
GLOBE’s Innovation Showcase was the place to experience cutting-edge technology and see the future of the clean economy.
In the Hall of Technology, participants explored the newest innovations in sustainability. In the Hall of Discovery, attendees met leaders from Canada and around the world, with a focus on corporate vanguards in five thematic clusters: Bioeconomy/Circular Economy, Mobility, Smart Cities, Carbon Productivity and Oceans and Plastic.
The Innovation Showcase also featured interactive opportunities, including innovation challenges, start-up pitch competitions, interactive presentations, networking activities, and many more.
GLOBE Forum is our flagship business summit, featuring world-renowned thought leaders, innovators and sustainability experts. The GLOBE community is at the forefront of economic transformation: we generate ideas, make deals and take bold steps that transform our economy and change the world for the better.
Every session, activity, networking break and exhibit were focused on creating a big impact — for business, for the economy and for the planet.
GLOBE delegates were also invited to GLOBE Advance on Feb. 13 – a half-day impact-focused event where the GLOBE community came together to develop action plans around the transition to a clean economy.
