We are proud to announce the 2024 Global Exploration Summit – come feel the power of exploration and join us in Portugal to hear tales of the world’s greatest expeditions.

This year, we ignite lift-off of the Global Exploration Summit from iconic Porto, Portugal, with a live recording of Dr. Brian Cox’s BBC Radio Show The Infinite Monkey Cage!

We then travel to the Azores, and spend two days being inspired by the power of exploration with talks from the world’s greatest explorers, and experiences around Angra do Heroismo and Terceira Island.

Come hike volcano tubes, go whale watching, and learn about the future of exploration from those powering humanity to greater heights than ever.
