The annual Greenbuild International Conference and Expo was launched in 2002 as the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Greenbuild features three days of inspiring speakers, invaluable networking opportunities, industry showcases, LEED workshops and tours of the host city’s green buildings. The conference has been hosted in major cities across the United States, including Chicago, Boston, Phoenix, and Denver. Greenbuild 2011 was in Toronto, Ontario, and Greenbuild 2012 will be in San Francisco.
In 2013, Greenbuild will be located in Philadelphia, running from November 20th-22nd. Because it will not have been on the East Coast for five years running, and because of Philadelphia’s proximity to New York City and Washington, D.C., conference organizers at the U.S. Green Building Council expect that over 30,000 attendees will be at the conference. They will come from all over the country and world, but about a third will be from the Mid-Atlantic region.
The Greenbuild team at the U.S. Green Building Council is responsible for overall conference planning and management, including running the process by which sessions are chosen, soliciting sponsors and managing registration, conference greening, and working with the local host chapter. www.greenbuildexpo.org
