The Marketplace of the Future

As a new take on the 1939 World’s Fair, the Marketplace of the Future is a cross between a celebration and market showcasing start-ups that operate with sustainability and social benefit at their core. There will be vendors, talks, workshops, live jazz, live art, stargazing, zero-waste food and drinks, and of course, climate change camaraderie.

The 1939 World’s Fair…

showed us the “World of Tomorrow,” creating a cloud of possibilities that eventually led to new ways of life. For example, GM showed future cities with super highways with no red lights from coast to coast. General Electric introduced the world to the fluorescent light bulb, and fair attendees took a glimpse at a television for the first time.

 

In today’s world…

We see exciting new innovations that promise to bring a brighter future for both people and planet!

When we look into the future, we see a time past the challenges of the Climate Crisis. A time in which circular economies, renewable energy, and sustainable systems are the norm. These are the companies making it happen.
