DebConf is the annual Debian Developers' conference hosted at a different location around the world each year. This is organized by a local team that gathers for bidding a year or two before their conference. Topics which are longer running than a specific DebConf are catered for by teams which are commonly summarized as the "global team".
Global teams include:
Bursary team (providing support for travel and accommodation to eligible attendees)
Sponsors/fundraising team: https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebConf/Sponsors/
Video team https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebConf/Video
Website team: https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebConf/WebTeam
Registration team (provide support for registering to the conference and support to attendees during the conference or while traveling)

The global team is there to help the local team make DebConf a success. It's role is to give advise based on their experience helping running DebConf over years.
Technically, for the work at hand for a specific DebConf, there doesn't have to be a distinction between local and global team. On the contrary, there is nothing against "locals" doing "global jobs" and vice versa, though the latter is sometimes more difficult and sometimes impossible.

For the long term oversight of DebConf a committee has been formed and delegated by the DPL. The current members and delegation text are available from https://www.debian.org/intro/organization.
