What is VERGE?

VERGE is GreenBiz Group's global event series focused on how technology accelerates sustainability solutions across industries and sectors. The event brings together the world’s largest companies, technology innovators, and cities, creating a broad ecosystem of players to accelerate opportunities for business, the environment, and society. The program focuses on practical, scalable, solutions-oriented conversations through six program tracks: new energy systems, next-gen buildings, resilient cities, sustainable mobility, smarter supply chains, and the food-energy-water nexus. Attendees come from buildings and facilities, fleets, real estate, IT, energy, sustainability, strategy, and other business functions.

  • Energy: Energy Managers, COOs, Plant Managers, Facilities Directors and those who directly manage energy within your organization.
  • IT: CIOs, CTOs or Directors of IT with activities involving buildings, logistics, application development and energy management.
  • Buildings: Facilities, Real Estate and Operations Managers deploying next generation techniques and IT tools to measure, monitor and control energy, enterprise resources and building operations.

I can only stay for part of the conference. Can I transfer my issued registration to someone else for the rest?

Is there a group discount?

Yes! When 2 or more people register, a discount of 20% off is applied to all registrants on all items. Group registration to VERGE San Francisco is strongly encouraged, and invitees have the option of adding team members during registration. Once you've added all team members and are ready to checkout, the discount will be automatically deducted from your total conference fees.

Are there any discounts for Government/Non-Profit/Academic/Student?

For government employees, students, academic, and non-profit organizations, we are offering 40% off the registration fee. To confirm eligibility and take advantage of this discount, please contact [email protected] with your organization or school info, number of attendees, and means of verifying your organization's status. Discount may not be combined with other offers.

What is the refund policy for the event?

Registrations for the event are non-refundable. However, if you register but are then unable to attend, we are happy to apply the amount you paid to a future GreenBiz event or product, or you can transfer your registration to a colleague. Please email [email protected] if you need to cancel or transfer your registration.
