Countdown To Blue Earth '23 -
10-12 Oct — Bristol
The Blue Earth Summit is a breakthrough gathering of the best people in business with shared values around people and planet.
A transformative 3 day event harnessing the power of the outdoors to make next level connections and inspire positive change. Collectively we identify current and future trends as we move forwards together.
At Blue Earth Summit the experts aren’t just on a stage – they’re all around you. Whether you’re from the most innovative outdoor brand or the biggest global service provider, a fledgling start-up or a FTSE100, it’s our shared belief that business can be a force for good in protecting our planet and its people.
Meet makers and mavericks, founders and futurists, adventurers and investors. We’ll put you in the room with people who can make a difference to your business.
Together, we’re rethinking what can be achieved at a business summit. Alongside our A-list keynote speakers, we’ve got action-focused panels and workshops that’ll give your business the tools you need, whether it’s how to get B-Corp status or the chance to win free consultancy.

At Blue Earth Summit the experts aren’t just on a stage in front of you – they’re all around you. Our co-creation sessions pull in the skills and passion of everyone in the room, so that as an attendee you’re not just listening to leading thinkers and doers, you’re in conversation with them.
Great outdoors = Great idea
Because the best business ideas happen outside the boardroom
Hosted at the Bristol Wave, day three of the Summit is its very own outdoor expo. We think that whether it’s talking shop on a trail run, drawing inspiration from nature or making the most of post-exercise endorphins, the great outdoors can be a catalyst for connections with like-minded people.
Attendees are united by our love of getting outside into the natural world, whether it’s the ocean or forests, mountains or parks. Our passion for the outdoors doesn’t just give us a reason to exist as a summit: it’s what binds us together as a movement.
