Please follow the assessment advice from the Canadian government should you feel you have COVID-like symptoms.

How are you addressing the emissions associated with GLOBE Forum 2024?

We recognize you’re making an investment every time you attend a GLOBE event – and we’re committed to ensuring you get a fantastic return on all aspects of that investment. As an event producer focused on accelerating a sustainable future, we have a responsibility to ensure that (1) the GLOBE community sees a return on carbon (primarily associated with air travel to and from our events), and (2) we walk the talk when it comes to our own footprint.

We do everything we can to make our events as sustainable as possible, including a comprehensive carbon inventory that incorporates our on-site operations, event staff travel, hotel stays, and food served. GLOBE Forum will be ‘bullfrogpowered’ with 100% green electricity, and we will offset all event-related emissions. In addition, during the registration process delegates have the option to offset travel-related emissions. We recognize that purchasing credible offsets does not address the root cause of air-travel-related emissions, so GLOBE Forum also includes programming designed to identify and accelerate climate solutions in the aviation sector.

When it comes to delivering a return on carbon, GLOBE Forum is an opportunity to contribute to outcomes that don’t just result in ‘less harm’ but generate ‘more good.’ The entire focus of our event is to build a more regenerative, net-zero future, and being part of this community empowers you to dismantle barriers and accelerate solutions so we can achieve it.

Why are we seeing an increased price on the Delegate pass rates?

In-person events are becoming increasingly expensive to execute, with event management companies routinely facing cost increases of over 35% on key items such as venue rental, food and beverage, and audio-visual services. To maintain the high level of quality that you have come to expect from GLOBE Series events, we have instituted a modest 15% increase in the GLOBE Forum 2024 registration fee — the first increase since 2018.
