SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2018 – Sustainable Brands® is evolving the concept of the traditional conference expo into an environment fostering inspiration and co-creation. The Activation Hub at SB’18 Vancouver, running June 4-7 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, will bring together 3,000 insightful change makers, entrepreneurs and leading companies to collaborate through the lens of Design Thinking methodology.
Concurrent with its world-renowned leadership conference, the Activation Hub at SB’18 Vancouver will leverage Design Thinking, the solutions-focused methodology used by designers in business, to spark ideas around product and service innovation for The Good Life. Attendees, speakers, sponsors and partners will gather in daily Innovation Labs that are facilitated by designers and thought-leaders such as Freya Williams of Futerra, Sally Uren of Forum for the Future, Christina Wong of SustainAbility and James Tansey, associate professor at the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business. Together, these key stakeholders will use the Design Thinking process to break down and collectively navigate key industry sector challenges.
The Activation Hub at SB’18 Vancouver will feature brands and solution providers already committed to developing business models and methods for delivering business growth based on a healthy and relevant vision of the Good Life. Key highlights include:
“The Activation Hub is sure to be the most exciting space to convene, network and get inspired at SB’18 Vancouver,” states KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, Founder and CEO of Sustainable Brands. “In a room packed with brands, visionary thought-leaders and disruptive innovators, the Activation Hub itself will function as an accelerator of the product and service innovation necessary to transition to The Good Life of the future.”
