EarthX Presents the World’s Largest Environmental Expo, Conference and Film Festival in Dallas

With a mission to connect the global community to create a sustainable
world for all life and future generations, Texas-based nonprofit EarthX
is hosting the world’s
largest environmental expo, conference and film festival from April
13-22, 2018, at locations throughout Dallas.

The EarthX
three-day expo, five-day group
of conferences and 10-day
film festival champions progress and innovation by bringing together
environmental organizations, businesses, academic institutions,
government agencies, interactive programming and thought leaders. The
event also fosters celebration with interactive and immersive family
entertainment, live music and sustainable food pavilions.

Founded in 2011 by Dallas-based environmentalist and businessman
Trammell S. Crow, EarthX, formerly known as Earth Day Texas, began as an
outdoor event spanning five blocks of Flora Street in the Dallas Arts
District. It has grown to occupy approximately 1/2 million square feet
of indoor and outdoor event space in Dallas’ historic Fair Park. In
2017, the event drew 116,000 attendees, 800 exhibitors, more than 250
speakers. Approximately 1,200 volunteers will be needed to put on the
massive event this year. Visit earthx.org to register for the 2018 event
and receive free admission.

“While we didn’t come up with the initial idea of a pro-business Earth
Day, we ran with it and grew it into the world’s largest gathering of
its kind,” said Trammell S. Crow, founder of EarthX. “International
environmentalists, elected officials, investors, business leaders,
educators and families are coming to EarthX in Dallas for an array of
conservation-focused offerings, exhibits, films and conferences, where
Earth is our common ground.”

Confirmed, renowned speakers in their areas of expertise for EarthX 2018
include astronaut Buzz Aldrin; Dr. Sylvia Earle, Mission Blue; James
Baker, Former Secretary of State; John Kasich, Governor of Ohio; Susan
Eisenhower, Presidential Blue Ribbon Nuclear Commission; Academy-Award
winner Louie Psihoyos; Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd; mayors of Phoenix, San
Antonio and other cities; Dr. Ved Chirayath, Director of Laboratory for
Advanced Sensing in the Earth Science Division at NASA Ames Silicon
Valley; as well as representatives from National Laboratories.

EarthX features five days of conferences from April 18-22. E-Capital
Summit will convene mission-driven investors, incubators,
accelerators, researchers and breakthrough clean technology innovators
from around the world to form partnerships having substantial, positive
impacts on profits, people and the planet. EarthxHack, a 24-hour
event, is the world’s largest environmental hackathon, sitting at the
intersection of innovation, technology and the environment. The platform
will create groundbreaking solutions by utilizing the brightest
technical minds of today focusing on the problems of tomorrow. New for
2018, EarthxSolar will bring together change-makers in the
business world and in solar energy. Other conferences, including EarthxOcean,
EarthxResponsibleOilandGas, EarthxBridge Summit and EarthxPolicy:
Energy Done Right, will encompass educational, municipal and
environmental efforts.

Exhibitors of EarthxExpo, taking place at Fair Park April 20-22,
include The National Audubon Society, Greenpeace, and The Plastic Soup
Foundation, a nonprofit focused on reducing ocean plastic from
Amsterdam, NL. EarthX has partnered with Trees for the Future to plant
as many trees as possible in five African countries during the expo as
well as with The Great Seed Bomb and City of Dallas for the weekend-long
Seed Bomb Blowout to help increase vital pollinator habitat here at
home. In addition, Oncor will showcase the new Nissan Leaf with examples
of EV charging stations, UPS is bringing its interactive education
trailer on alternative fuel transportation, and TxDOT’s Don’t Mess with
Texas Program offers an interactive virtual reality game about litter
prevention.

EarthxExpo attendees can experience a wide range of educational and
interactive activities for the whole family during the three-day event.
There is plenty to do and see focused on sustainability and green
living, from an Outdoor Adventure Zone featuring scuba diving to tree
climbing and goat yoga and an Interactive Zone with virtual and mixed
reality, to exploring a Tiny House Village or enjoying the Eco Auto
Show, E-Bike track and science education trucks.

Prior to the launch of the expo and conferences, EarthxFilm will

Competitions (open now), in-school screenings and hands-on workshops at
