The unique format will allow participants to meet internationally recognised speakers and “doers”, and exchange ideas with them. The Circular Change Cup is divided into two parts: a sailing regatta and a business congress and expo.

Through these two parts, participants will gain knowledge, create networks, and partake in unique team building exercises with experts from a plethora of fields including mobility, construction, food, manufacturing, IT, education, governance, finances, health, energy, infrastructure, and fashion. The goal is to form a disruptive network of professionals that will allow for circular change to transpire.  

Both the sailing regatta and business congress and expo will share a home base at the marina whereas the crew members of the regatta will venture out into the Adriatic Sea to Palmižana in the Pakleni Islands. At the business congress and expo, participants will have the chance to hear from internationally recognized keynote speakers in the circular economy industry including:
