WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Dates were announced today for future Greenbuild International Conference & Expo events through the year 2019 by Informa Exhibitions and the U.S. Green Building Council.
"We are committed to rotating Greenbuild to very accessible locations to maximize attendee participation and exhibitor confidence. We ensure Greenbuild takes place in different geographic locations and have scheduled a strong line-up that will take the event to the West Coast, Northeast, Midwest and Southeast," said Lindsay Roberts, Greenbuild group director, Informa Exhibitions. "We've also considered other industry events with our proposed schedule to ensure we aren't in direct conflict."
Greenbuild will continue its pattern of rotating around the U.S. on the following schedule:
2016: Los Angeles Convention Center | Los Angeles, CA | Oct. 7-9
2017: Boston Convention & Exhibition Center | Boston, MA | Nov. 8-10
2018: McCormick Place (West Building) | Chicago, IL | Nov. 14-16
2019: Georgia World Congress Center | Atlanta, GA | Nov. 20-22
"Many factors are considered in regards to the location of Greenbuild, including the sustainability climate of the city we're considering," said Kate Hurst, vice president, community advancement, conferences and events, USGBC. "The selected cities are conducive to sustainability and the mission of Greenbuild - from walkability of the convention center area and public transportation options to initiatives currently taking place within each city - all these factors contribute to our ultimate decision."
Future dates for the international Greenbuild events, including Greenbuilding Brazil and Greenbuild Europe and the Mediterranean (EuroMed) will be announced in the coming weeks.
