Why GLOBE - What Sets Us Apart?
- The GLOBE Series is the longest running corporate environmental
business event in North America. Having been around since 1990,
GLOBE is known as the quintessential gathering of global senior
business and government representatives who meet to network and to
advance the issues at the nexus of global business and
sustainability agendas. We were there first, and we will continue
to remain at the forefront of sustainable business long into the
- The GLOBE Series is the flagship event produced by the GLOBE
Foundation, an environmental business foundation whose senior
executive team has been with the company since its inception and
who are proven visionaries in the realm of sustainable business. In
September 2011, our CEO John Wiebe, was named one of Corporate
Knight's Clean16, which recognizes him as one of 16 individuals who
have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean
capitalism in Canada. Our thought leadership is also demonstrated
through our globe-net.com environmental business news
website (over 45,000 unique visitors per week).
- GLOBE is a fully integrated event: it has a comprehensive
conference program as well as a world-class technology trade fair.
Other conferences do not have a trade fair of the size or nature of
GLOBE (if they have a trade fair at all - most do not). Conversely,
other large environmental technology trade fairs do not have a
strategic business conference accompanying it. GLOBE is the only
combined international environmental business conference and
technology trade fair of its scale - anywhere.
- The GLOBE Conference is strategic in nature, not technical.
While some other events have a technical conference with a call for
papers attached to a trade fair, the GLOBE Conference has always
been about long term business strategy and competitiveness. We
develop our own program content and actively seek out the best and
most innovative companies in the world to deliver that
- One of GLOBE's biggest strengths and the characteristic that
best sets us apart from other events is the massive international
scope. The GLOBE Trade Fair showcases over 400 companies bringing
advanced environmental technologies from around the world.
Twenty-two countries took part in the GLOBE 2010 Trade Fair:
United Arab Emirates
- GLOBE attracts participants from dozens of countries. Although
a record-breaking 22 countries exhibited at the 2010 Trade Fair,
many more countries attend the Conference and visit the Trade Fair
searching for solutions to environmental challenges. In fact, more
than 80 countries have participated in GLOBE events.
- The durability and value of GLOBE is obvious: even in the
economic downturn of 2008/2009, GLOBE 2010 had record levels of
participation: the highest number of sponsors to date, the greatest
number of international exhibitors in history, and a record number
of senior executive participation ̶ more than 800 Presidents and
CEOs. No other international environmental business conference
attracts such large numbers of C-Suite-level participation.
- GLOBE is multi-sectoral by design, because companies in
different sectors often face similar challenges. This approach
allows un-related companies to learn from one another, find
synergies across sectors and to do business together. Other
conferences and/or trade fairs that have emerged in the past five
years are highly sector-specific with the exclusive focus on water,
fuel cells, green building, etc. GLOBE brings all these together
under one roof because many companies both procure from and sell
into many different types of markets.
