The Greenbuild Conference and Expo is the world’s largest conference dedicated to green building. It is being hosted this year in San Francisco, November 14-16th and brings industry leaders together to talk about green building innovations, industry trends, new technology and best practices.
This conference caters to green building professionals, green contractors, architects, and green DIYers looking to better understand how they can adopt green practices into the things they build and the buildings they manage.
The pricing for early birds ends on September 10th, so if you are thinking of going, you should make your decision quick so you can get a price break. You can check out all the different pricing packages here.
Twenty years ago this type of conference would not exist, however the recent trend toward sustainability has spawned a large industry of professionals who focus on building efficiency. This is important because buildings consume 40% of the US energy. Thanks to government incentives and new energy efficient standards, the green building industry is growing more and more important.
Of course, if you want to conserve energy in your home or building you don’t have to be a green contractor, but it helps to know a thing or two about building performance and energy efficient behavior when operating a building. This conference can help you hone in your skills and knowledge. So check it out.
