Greenbuild 2014: 3 Lessons Learned

After much anticipation, the wait is finally over — Greenbuild 2014 has arrived! Day one of the expo opened at 9:30 this morning and our team was there bright and early to join in the fun. 

With only hours prior to the expo hall being open to thousands of attendees, Ian and Ryan, our US Builders Review reps, met up with each of our 2014 Editor’s Choice companies to set up iPad and laptop displays of their custom digital brochure cover photos. In addition to taking some really cool pics, which you can find on Twitter, the guys also passed out information regarding ways to connect with other inudstry-leading businesses on our website and social media networks.

Here are 3 lessons Ian and Ryan learned their first day at Greenbuild:

1. WaterFence‘s Steve McDowell is pretty smart. As a high school student and inventor, he is drawing a great deal of attention for his innovative new product.

2. Aeroseal has been very busy answering questions from attendees. Interestingly enough, the gentleman working at their booth worked on every project pictured in their digital brochure!

3. Do not tell anyone you rode in a cab to the Greenbuild Conference & Expo unless you carpooled with other attendees. That’s a green faux pas. 

That wraps up day one of Greenbuild 2014! The conference will start up again Thursday morning and continue to the weekend with workshops, evening events, and many more opportunities to learn more about the exhibiting companies. Ian, Ryan and the rest of the US Builders Review team will be sending in more updates throughout the conference, so stay tuned!

Working with Kyle at TrueLine Publishing was a great experience. We are quite pleased with how the article about Souder Brothers turned out. The magazine article and photo spread is going to be a very effective tool to use in our marketing. If you have the opportunity to be featured in a project like this, I would recommend doing it. Kyle and his team made the whole process very smooth and we are happy to have been a part of the latest edition of US Builders Review.

Thank you all your efforts in putting together such a great article about our company in US Builders Review. DH Construction appreciates the professional manner in which your team worked with us to achieve the stateside exposure we were after; especially taking the time to get all of the facts correct. In short, the article was extremely well put together and we have already received a great deal of feedback, interest, and compliments as a result of the piece. Once again, we appreciate all the effort, and without a doubt, we will not hesitate to work with your organization again in the future.

The process was simple: we were provided questions that the writers wanted to discuss, we were interviewed, and then we got to see a few drafts before the final version went to print. Given the quality of this publication, on behalf of Giroux, I can assure everyone that all of my partners would be happy to participate in similar articles in the future.

Kyle Gahm was instrumental in coordinating this project from beginning to end. He was always available and a pleasure to work with. It would be a pleasure to work with Kyle down the road. Bill Keaton was very impressive in raising money from advertising which resulted in ASE getting the cover story, so thank you Bill. Lia Prysunka and Jeanee Dudley are both very impressive individuals who deserve a lot of credit for this featured piece. They were both very patient and accepting of any changes we suggested. The format, quality, and resolution was awesome. To sum it all up: Our upper management, who never have been high on PR and things of this nature said that it was "absolutely fantastic" and were blown away. They now are requesting multiple copies of the full magazine and are very proud of the work you all put in. Thanks again.
