The 2017 Greenbuild Conference and Expo is right around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’re unfamiliar with Greenbuild, it is the biggest green building conference and expo in the world and is dedicated to curating sustainable living and building green. Industry professionals come together to reignite their passion for green building and take it back to their community. This three day conference is packed full of education, inspiration and forward-thinking. With so much going on at Greenbuild, it’s difficult to choose what exactly we’re most excited for; however, here’s what we’re looking forward to at the 2017 Greenbuild conference.
President Bill Clinton and Neil deGrasse Tyson
The Greenbuild speakers never fall short of phenomenal! In the past, speakers have included leaders Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and General Colin Powell to name a few. The opening plenary this year is former U.S.President Bill Clinton and closing is Neil deGrasse Tyson. Regardless of their differing backgrounds, these two leaders have unique, but complementary work that both result in the Greenbuild stamp of approval. Without a doubt, they we are definitely looking forward to listening to and learning from these world changers.
It’s quite possible that the Greenbuild expos are where the magic happens. There’s something inspiring about seeing over 600 different companies come together with the same vision: enhancing sustainable building. Walking through the expo, you will find exhibitors showing off their products and services that benefit the green community. The expo is also interactive and offers applied learning areas and education labs for guests to attend. This year, you can expect fun giveaways and organic networking through a Greenbuild Happy Hour in the expo hall as well.
Summits at Greenbuild
The summits are a part of Greenbuild that we love most. They combine intentional education and networking to create the whole package. This year, there are three summits: Communities & Affordable Homes Summit, WaterBuild – The Water Summit at Greenbuild, and International Summit. These three summits will educate on different aspects of green building that ultimately work together in the big picture. All summits will be held on Tuesday, November 7.
We’re excited to be immersed in the culture of Greenbuild and see firsthand how people are coming together to better the green building industry.
This year’s conference will be held November 7-10 and located at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. For more information on Greenbuild, visit their website at greenbuildexpo.com.
