Generating more than $20 million in economic spin-off for the city of Vancouver every two years, the biennial GLOBE Conference and Trade Fair.

Vancouver, CANADA – The international business community is shifting its focus to Vancouver this March as GLOBE 2012, one of the world’s largest and longest-running events dedicated to business and the environment, takes place at the Vancouver Convention Centre.


Generating more than $20 million in economic spin-off for the city of Vancouver every two years, the biennial GLOBE Conference and Trade Fair, now in its 12th edition, is where business leaders, corporate executives, NGOs, and government policymakers gather to share insights and make business deals that are beneficial to the planet and the bottom line.

“More than 400 leading environmental and clean energy technology firms from around the world recognize that the GLOBE events in Vancouver are the place to showcase and sell their products and services to a global audience,” says John Wiebe, President and CEO of the GLOBE Foundation.

From March 14-16, 2012, GLOBE 2012 will connect exhibitors and buyers from more than 50 countries – including China, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Poland, Austria, and France – to do business. More than $2 billion in business has been generated as a result of GLOBE.

“Beyond the unique opportunity for businesses to build relationships with foreign buyers, GLOBE brings together the brightest business minds behind some of the most successful and sustainable corporations on the planet,” says Wiebe. “When we started GLOBE back in 1990 our philosophy was that environmental problems are business opportunities and that’s more valid today than ever before.” GLOBE participants include CEOs and other top-level executives from corporations such as Microsoft Corporation, Royal Bank Canada (RBC), Cenovus, DuPont Sustainable Solutions, SNC-Lavalin, Duke Energy, Tetra Pak Inc., and more.
