Why attend BES 2022

What’s your blue thread?

Join us for three days in Bristol this October and discover your Blue Thread. Join our movement and be part of a community of like-minded Summiteers. Then pull on your wetsuit (or running gear, or bike helmet, or yoga kit…..) at The Wave and spend time in the only board meeting that really matters. It’s time to make a real difference for your business and the blue earth we all share.

“The most energising and insightful business event that I have ever experienced”

Outdoors

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 the decision makers

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.

Listen to inspirational speakers

Our speakers deliver inspiration, impact and insight 

Find out more about our speakers for this year’s Blue Earth Summit. Over 72 hours with us in Bristol, you’ll have chances to meet them (and perhaps work and play with them too).

From big-brand CEOs to big-wave surfers, each has a story to tell about the companies they’re building, the challenges they’ve overcome and the difference they want to make to how we live and work.

Learn from the best

Alongside our A-list keynote speakers, there will be plenty of chances to get involved too, with action-focused panels, how-to workshops and co-creation sessions that will give your business the tools and insights you need. 

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.

BES - 2022

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. 

Summiteers 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.
