Greenbuild attendees will have the chance to visit Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and Atlanta in the next few years as the USGBC announced the host cities for its annual trade show.
The conference and trade show sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council will take place Oct. 7-9, 2016, in Los Angeles; Nov. 8-10, 2017, in Boston; Nov. 14-16, 2018, in Chicago; and Nov. 20-22, 2019, in Atlanta.
“We are committed to rotating Greenbuild to very accessible locations to maximize attendee participation and exhibitor confidence,” said Lindsay Roberts, Greenbuild group director with Informa Exhibitions, which owns the event. “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. We’ve also considered other industry events with our proposed schedule to ensure we aren’t in direct conflict.”
This year’s event will take place Nov. 18-20 in Washington, D.C.
“Many factors are considered in regards to the location of Greenbuild, including the sustainability climate of the city we’re considering,” said Kate Hurst, the USGBC’s vice president of community advancement, conferences and events. “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.”
