Inspired by the 1939 New York World's Fair, The Marketplace of the Future is an annual expo showcasing products and services embodying a sustainable future. For our 5th annual event, we're returning with dozens of start-ups covering the spectrum of climate solutions. From breakthrough renewable energy technology to zero-waste packaging, experience what it's like when a sustainable future meets present. Learn more about our inspiration.
Our 2021 Marketplace will be our first ever hybrid event. We will begin online where you will meet thousands of attendees and connect with dozens of organizations bringing about a sustainable future, right now. For those in NYC, we'll then transition to our classic in-person classic expo event as the official closing ceremony for Climate Week NYC.
