Registration is under way for the U.S. Green Building Council’s 2010 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, scheduled for Nov. 16-19 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The USGBC said an estimated 40,000 visitors are expected at the event, which has been given a theme of “Generation Green: Redefining Our Future.” The organization said that to “kick start” its “GenGreen” campaign, it is asking the question, “What are you doing to redefine our future,” and is inviting the green-building community to submit 30-second videos on the convention website www.greenbuildexpo.org/GenGreen.
The USGBC said the event draws the largest gathering of representatives from all sectors of the green-building movement. The conference and expo encompasses three days of educational programming, workshops, an expansive exhibition floor, and a number of networking events focusing on technological innovations, new products, and the exchange of ideas with other professionals. The 2009 Greenbuild in Phoenix drew more than 27,000 attendees and featured more than 1,800 exhibit booths.
“Greenbuild 2010 will be an experience from which all attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the green-building movement and how each of us, every day, through small steps and large, are proud, devoted members of the most diverse and defining movement within a generation,” said Kimberly Lewis, USGBC vice president of conferences and events. “As with each year, Greenbuild programming will be a robust grouping of the latest advances within the industry,” she said.
