2010 Greenbuild Expo in Chicago Nov. 17-19
Greenbuild International Conference and Expo has returned to Chicago and it’s bigger and better than ever. This year’s schedule includes a Residential Summit, Affordable Housing Summit, LEED workshops, and a number of educational sessions. The event is being held next week in McCormick Place’s enormous West exposition hall, which will feature an endless array of today’s most innovative green products and services, as well as ideas on how to grow your business through eco-friendly practices.
Hundreds of exhibitors will set up booths on the main floor and there is a coinciding film festival on Wednesday (Nov 17) and Thursday (Nov 18) featuring titles such as Carbon Nation, Greening the Cube: 100-Mile Housing, Green Building Making Sense and Split Estate.
The Chicago Greenbuild convention has also rounded up some of the industry’s leading experts to talk about relevant topics that impact green construction. Speakers will touch on a range of subjects, from policies that affect sustainability to the logistics of eco-conscious building to driving residential demand for green homes. This year’s keynote speaker is General Colin Powell. The former Secretary of State is a notable advocate for LEED certification for affordable housing programs. He will present the Greenbuild Opening Plenary on Wednesday morning (Nov 17), from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
The Greenbuild conference was in Chicago in 2007, but the 2010 event is going to blow that year’s expo out of the water! Register for Greenbuild on its website: www.greenbuildexpo.org. Members of the U.S. Green Building Council receive a discount on registration fees.
