Precinct Highlights

The Arena

At the heart of the Expo Hall, this interactive, circular space is designed to stimulate conversation and critical thinking. In the midst of colourful representations of each Sustainable Development Goal, visitors can observe pitch competitions, engage in thoughtful discussion and informal talks, or listen to innovators discuss their ideas.

Give Me 5!

Give Me 5! is an opportunity for young innovators to spend five minutes speaking one-on-one with a global leader. These unique face-to-face encounters take place in public view with no microphones, allowing the conversation to be seen but not heard. However, it doesn’t end when the clock runs down. A Give Me 5! talk often leads to much more for both innovator and leader, because five minutes can change the world.

Pitches, competitions and hackathons

Global Table can organise pitches, contests and hackathons in conjunction with our partners. We invite startups, innovators and students to join in and find solutions for some of the most pressing issues of our time.

The Big Brother Innovation Program

The Big Brother Innovation Program provides partners with exclusive access to the Global Table and Seeds&Chips global ecosystem to build their vision. Partners can support and invite startups that are already in their network to the event to offer them the opportunity to develop new business opportunities and showcase their products. Alternatively, invite a startup your business is looking to partner with.
