Explore some of the exciting new programming features we’re offering at GLOBE Forum 2024!

For over 30 years, it’s been our privilege to present one of North America’s largest and longest running sustainability events – and we’re always on the lookout for new ways to innovate and inspire! Check back often as new activations are announced.

The Hub – at the Centre of Your Regeneration Journey

The Hub is the central space where delegates will come together to network, connect, and experience all that GLOBE Forum 2024 has to offer.

The spacious foyers in the Vancouver Convention Centre will be divided into a series of zones representing the four GLOBE Forum 2024 program tracks. Delegates will converge in the Hub for networking, meetings, receptions, quiet reflection, B2B activities, solution showcases, pitches, press conferences, interviews, and much more.

Evolving the 10×10 Matrix: The Path to Net Zero and a Regenerative Future

To help fuel and shape the collaboration and creativity needed to achieve net zero by 2030, we took our key learnings from GLOBE Forum 2022 and created the 10×10 Matrix, the 10 action areas we need to prioritize in the next 10 years to achieve net zero by 2050. This tool then became the programming framework at GLOBExCHANGE 2023.

We’re excited to share the 10×10 Outcomes from GLOBExCHANGE 2023 which will set the stage for the next big conversation at GLOBE Forum 2024.

Return on Carbon

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.
