Throughout the conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in various workshops, speaking engagements, and education sessions. Instead of offering the typical breakout session, GREENBUILD offers a lineup of Special Sets, which give participants the opportunity to be a part of a creative environment that offers a new take on engaging exhibitions.

Held at the Boston Convention & Exhibit Center, GREENBUILD 2017 will take place November 8 – 10, 2017. Activities and some workshops will begin November 6 and run through November 10. Some of the notable activities will include the WaterBuild Summit, a one-day summit that convenes multi-disciplinary leaders for dialogue, knowledge sharing and problem solving to address water issues such as scarcity, security, quality, efficiency and site water management. Waterbuild 2017 will take a closer look at what it means to be resilient in the face of ever-changing conditions.

Since education is such an important standard of GREENBUILD, there will be opportunities for attendees to gain continuing education credits. They can also attend the GBCI Certification Work Zone, where people can discuss problems, gather general information, or get one-on-one assistance. Some other main highlights of GREENBUILD will include the Women in Green Power Breakfast, the TalentFX gathering for students and emerging professionals to get connected with other professionals in the green building industry.

Each year, GREENBUILD also offers exciting Plenaries where the world’s business, environmental, and social leaders offer inspiring speeches. Previous speakers have included the likes of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Al Gore, and Hillary Clinton. The 2017 GREENBUILD is sure to host some very exciting discussions and talent.
