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.
