2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo

2014 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo

The 2014 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo will be held October 22-24 at the Morial Convention Center.

The three-day conference, aptly themed 'Leadership Jazz' for 2014, attracts 23,000 attendees and 600 exhibitors annually from across the green building sector, spanning commercial and residential professionals, architects, building owners and operators, students, advocates and educators.

"Greenbuild has been the premier convener of the green building movement for more than a decade, and it continues to grow and diversify," said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair, USGBC.

"This year, we've created a world stage in New Orleans for two interrelated subjects - resilience and climate change - in a city that demonstrates the powerful force of human resilience every day as it rebuilds in ways that protect and showcase its dynamic cultural background. It's the perfect city to host this year's conference."

The week of Greenbuild will feature more than 240 education sessions, LEED workshops, summits, expo education sessions and tours of notable areas in New Orleans.

The expo hall boasts on-floor education and five dedicated product pavilions, including a smart grid pavilion powered by alternative energy.

The show will also feature a net-zero electricity demonstration home that will be open for tours. The home will be donated to Brad Pitt's foundation, Make It Right, after the event.
