New FREE Virtual Event – Global Green ExpoAn August “virtual” trade show will give attendees a chance to learn about green building without leaving their homes or offices.

The Aug. 5 online Global Green Expo will feature seminars on green building, manufacturing and design, and energy and resource management. By signing in at the event website , attendees will be able to view keynote speakers and educational sessions, ask questions and “visit” with company representatives at the trade show.

The expo is sponsored by BNP Media and Snips sister publications the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration News; Environmental Design & Construction; Sustainable Facility; Walls & Ceilings; and World Trade 100.

Environmental Design & Construction and Sustainable Facility editor Michelle Hucal will moderate many of the online discussions.

“The event will open with keynote presenter, Kathy Loftus, global leader of sustainable engineering and energy management from Whole Foods Market," Hucal said. "She’ll address ‘Integrating Better Building Blocks for the Foundation of our Future.’ After the presentation, attendees can ask the expert, Loftus, questions via live chat and get responses live. The conference lineup will be one you don’t want to miss."

Diana Brown, group publisher of Environmental Design & Construction and Sustainable Facility, said she expects the trade show to be popular.

“We plan to have a variety of exhibitors for attendees to see including BASF, Duro-Last Roofing, Firestone Building Products, E-Mon and Redi Controls,” Brown said.
