The Go Global Expo is produced by Verge Magazine

We believe in the power of travel for change.  International experience creates global citizens, who can change our planet for the better.  This belief is at the core of everything we do. 

Since 2002, we have produced quality events and resources to help people experience the world in a meaningful way, through opportunities to study, work and volunteer abroad.

Before co-founding Verge, he spent 10 years in the field of experiential education, including several years training experiential educators. Through Verge and the Go Global Expos, Jeff has been helping to connect international organizations and global citizens for more than a decade.

  • Two years at Atlantic College in Wales, followed by a gap year, ignited Tannis' passion for international learning and experience. After obtaining degrees abroad from Cambridge University and the University of Chicago, Tannis worked in eight different countries as a consultant in the areas of international development, tourism and the environment for government, non-profit and NGO/INGO clients.

    Tannis co-founded Verge Magazine and the Go Global Expo in 2002. She has managed most areas of the organization, and her work has taken her to all seven continents. Tannis is constantly impressed and inspired by the global community of travellers and learners who work towards making the world a better place, and is always honoured when they choose Verge to be part of their community.
