Lectures & Conferences
The inaugural Globe Summit conference will take place on September 22-24, bringing
together some of the greatest and influential minds of our time for three days of
thought-provoking interviews and actionable discussions across four core subject areas -economy, health, innovation, and sustainability–that represent some of New England’s greatest strengths. Across the three-day conference, each session will help define and
debate on how the region can come back even stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic.
