The U.S. Green Building Council's GreenBuild International Conference and Expo will take place in Phoenix, AZ, from November 11-13. This is the eighth annual GreenBuild Conference, with last year's being held in Boston, MA.
The Green Build Expo website
gives details about speakers, educational sessions, exhibits, tours, and events.
Former Vice President Al Gore will be the keynote speaker at the opening ceremony. This year's theme is "Green building can and must come home to all people, boosting the quality of life across the country and around the world."
GreenBuild was launched by the USGBC in 2002 as "the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building". Greenbuild not only features speakers, seminars, workshops and products, but it also provides tours of green buildings in each host city.
