Learn. Connect. Advance.

GLOBE Forum will be a turning point in the conversation about the clean economy.

Thought leaders from the public and private sectors will challenge and inspire us across five key themes: Climate Crisis, Sustainability as Strategy, Energy Transformation, Circular Economy, and Mobilizing Capital.

GLOBE 2020 will also be where we turn talk into action: our program is geared toward generating impact, action and outcomes — for you, for your business and for the planet.

Join us to:

LEARN: Get the information and inspiration you need to adapt to a changing world.
CONNECT: Meet the people who can help you achieve your goals.
ADVANCE: Grow your career and your business.

With engaging formats like workshops, debates, Q&As and challenge pitches, you will leave GLOBE 2020 with new ideas, connections and inspiration.

GLOBE After Dark

GLOBE After Dark

Join us on Feb. 11 from 8:30 p.m. to late for GLOBE After Dark — the biggest party we’ve ever thrown. It’s our 30th anniversary and we’re ready to celebrate 30 years of big deals, big ideas and big impact.

We’re excited to partner with CN, IETA, Clean Energy Canada and XCHG to bring you GLOBE After Dark at one of Vancouver’s most iconic downtown venues, the Commodore Ballroom.

The Commodore is one of the best concert venues in Canada and has hosted music legends from around the world for decades. Come admire the Art Deco style and the sprung dance floor (hint: the secret is the horsehair under the floorboards).

Don’t miss all your favourite people under one roof plus live music, a poutine bar (and other delicious treats) and custom cocktails!

Transport: Starting at 20:15, West Coast Sightseeing will be providing electric bus pick-up and drop-off every 15 minutes between the Pan Pacific and the Commodore.

  • First pick-up from Pan Pacific: 20:15, Feb. 11
  • Last drop-off to Pan Pacific: 01:15, Feb. 12

This event is for GLOBE Forum and Exchange delegates only.

The conference was political, creative and flawlessly executed. I was very glad to be a part of it.

I really came away renewed, inspired and filled with great new knowledge. It was truly a pleasure to contribute in some small way.

Joe Tankersley Principal Consultant, Unique Visions

I truly enjoyed participating in GLOBE and felt like it was one of the best conferences I have been to in a long time. You very much walked the talk, from your support for women, to First Peoples, to your contribution to the local organizations.
