Making the World a Better Place: Expand at the 2017 Global Citizen Festival


Expand was a proud sponsor of this year’s Global Citizen Festival, which took place on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in Central Park.

We were happy join Global Citizen again in the movement to fight inequality, protect our planet, and end extreme poverty by the year 2030. This movement combines actions and voices of millions of citizens, non-profits, and world leaders.

As a global company, we were happy to donate our professional-grade, HD dye-sub printed backwall, the Expand GrandFabric, to help promote the event.


This year’s festival attracted a crowd of over 60,000 people, including many celebrities and global activists. Attendees included actor Kal Penn, Dr. Jane Goodall, UN Ambassador for Peace and Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and television personality from the ABC reality television series, Shark Tank.
