The countdown is on


We are proud to announce Breitling, Trek, Ecologi, Hydro Flask, ENSO and Caravan Coffee Roasters as key brand partners

We are pleased to announce the Swiss luxury watchmaker Breitling, leading cycle brand Trek, Ecologi, Hydro Flask, ENSO and Caravan Coffee Roasters as key brand partners at the two-day event being held in Bristol on 13-14 October at The Marble Factory for day 1 and then The Wave for day 2.

With the critical COP26 global gathering about to start in Glasgow, Blue Earth Summit is a timely marker bringing together a cross section of eminently positive thinkers across business, the outdoor industries, elite sport, academia, politics, activism and sustainability to challenge us all to commit to values and habits for the common good in a region that is proud of its leadership, humility and creativity. All the brands align perfectly with the key summit values of living and working sustainably, protecting our outdoor playgrounds and inspiring a healthy outlook. 

Alongside other main sponsors Trek and Ecologi, Breitling will be exhibiting on day 1 and hosting a keynote talk and Q&A with Breitling Explorer Squad member Bertrand Piccard. With a strong heritage of supporting surf talent, surfing will be a central theme of Breitling’s involvement on day 2 at the Wave, including a pro surf demo session activation with big wave champion Andrew Cotton, who will also be hosting a keynote talk entitled “Embracing Fear”.

Since 1884, Breitling has established a global reputation for high-precision timepieces, and is renowned for its spirit of innovation in the worlds of science, sport, and technology. Their investment into ambassadors such as Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore, David de Rothschild and Inge Solheim provides multiple points of reference for our audience.
