Summary: In an effort to broaden its audience reach, Greenbuild International Conference and Expo (Greenbuild), the world’s largest conference dedicated to promoting green construction principles, has partnered with U.S. Builders Review, a nationally recognized trade publication. The partnership provides both parties with an opportunity to further educate laypeople and industry professionals alike about the benefits of green building.
With a nationwide audience of construction industry executives, contractors, developers and leaders, US Builders Review offers to companies across the country an opportunity to connect with fellow professionals. Now, with a recent partnership with Greenbuild, US Builders Review will spotlight the green building community and the upcoming Greenbuild 2014 conference.
Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, annually attracting over 23,000 attendees and 750 exhibitors from across the green building sector. These individuals include architects, builders/contractors, designers, engineers, sustainability experts, thought leaders, educators, students and emerging professionals.
Following an enormously successful 2013 conference in Philadelphia, 2014’s theme of “Leadership Jazz” will showcase “the music of the green building movement.” The Morial Convention Center, in New Orleans, plays host to the event, where thousands of innovators, experts and proponents will meet, learn and share. “The Big Easy is the perfect setting to celebrate this global impact, while also embracing the essence of community, culture and soul,” announces Lindsay Roberts, Greenbuild’s show director.
“Sustainability through the construction process has been a growing initiative across the industry,” says Sean O’Reilly, senior editorial director of US Builders Review. “The Greenbuild Conference offers us a glimpse of the future. Thousands of brilliant minds have been working to allow us a more efficient, environmentally friendly building process, and at Greenbuild we get the chance to learn about the cutting-edge products they have toiled over.”
Greenbuild 2014 begins Wednesday, Oct. 22 and continues through Friday, Oct. 24. The expo will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., offering plenty of time to network with and learn from members of the green community.
The education program at Greenbuild begins Monday, Oct. 20, with tours of New Orleans; Tuesday features various summits and LEED workshops; the core education sessions run Wednesday, Oct. 22, through Friday, Oct. 24; and the week concludes with more tours Saturday.
