GreenBuild International Conference + Expo – November 15-17, 2006 (Denver, CO)

Sustainable building for 2006 had to be a watershed year, and this conference looks to be an exciting event. Everytime you see "LEED" in my blog, I'm talking about the professional, responsible embodiment of green buildings--smart, efficient, and energy independent. Starting tomorrow, the USGBC's annual conference begins; here's what's in store for the next 3 days: +700 exhibitor booths, LEED workshops, green building tours, powerful keynote speakers, Master Speakers Series, USGBC Leadership Awards, etc.
