EarthX 2019 is Coming – and it’s the Biggest Environmental Exposition on Earth!

Did you know that a Dallas environmental group launched just 7 years ago by Trammel Crow and other concerned citizens now provides the largest annual event anywhere for sharing the latest initiatives, discoveries, research, innovations, policies, and corporate practices that are reshaping our world?

Meet EarthX!

EarthX is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that holds a three-day exposition every April to celebrate progress, hope, and innovation regarding our environment. The annual EarthX expo is now held in Fair Park, taking up 500,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. EarthX brings together environmental organizations, businesses, academic institutions, government agencies, speakers, interactive programming, and subject matter experts along with live music, art and food. It creates a fun and engaging atmosphere for thought and experiential learning. In 2018, EarthX hosted more than 137,000 attendees, over 600 exhibitors and 400 speakers, becoming the largest annual environmental exposition and programming initiative in the world!

While many of the EarthX efforts are centered on the three-day event in April, numerous year-round events are being launched to generate additional awareness and inspire people to get involved and help make a difference.

Join us on October 8 and learn more about EarthX, its history and mission, and how you can attend its annual exposition and other local events!
