Unmissable networking in our exhibition area and a exciting opportunity to forge new relationships at the casual after-event.



The Ocean is like the Earth’s circulatory system. It provides us with food, fresh water, energy, medicine, the oxygen in every second breath we take and inspiration!

Now it is in trouble.

Increasing demand for resources, technological advances, over-fishing, climate change, pollution, biodiversity and habitat loss, alongside weak high seas governance and inadequate law enforcement, are all contributing to its decline.

Ocean Unite is a Global Leadership Initiative incubated by Virgin Unite, set up to activate and amplify voices with impact at key moments, to secure a healthy and vital ocean.

Where will our money go?

Awaken Business Summit is giving back to our planet through Ocean Unite. We are committed to donating a portion of our proceeds each year to this vital project.

Our donations will help support Ocean Unite to foster leadership, commitment and action for our ocean. The ocean can rebound. We need it to. Our support can help make it happen.
