Green Building Expo 2010 Global Conference and Exposition

A Global Stage for Discussion of Sustainable Design, Construction and Engineering

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2010) -  CMC Media Inc., publisher of the Green Building Journal and host of GreenBuildingPro.com, a social media community for green building professionals, has announced Green Building Expo 2010. The conference and exposition, which takes place May 19-20 2010, is available free to attendees anywhere Internet connectivity is available -- http://www.greenbuildingpro.com/green-building-expo-2010.html

According to Conservation International, online events can eliminate over 300 tons of CO2 per 1000 attendees. 

Green Building Expo is a virtual conference and showcase with wide-ranging exhibits, compelling conference sessions, panel discussions and keynote presentations by Jack Canfield, originator of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul®" series and by the Organic Architect, Eric Corey Freed, author of "Green Building for Dummies" and "Sustainable School Architecture." Because of its online nature, people, who would never be able to participate in such an event, can participate at their leisure from the comfort of their home or office.

The two-day conference program includes 18 hours of high-interest presentations featuring industry expert discussions and live audience Q&A. The exhibit hall is packed with virtual exhibit booths where attendees may investigate new products and services, view streaming media demos, gather literature and even engage in live discussions with company representatives or other conference goers. The entire conference environment has been designed with social media networking at its core, enabling participants to expand their personal and professional networks.

Green Building Expo eliminates the barriers associated with low participation rates at many recent in-person events and directly addresses the high carbon footprint normally associated with tradeshows. "Escalating concerns over global warming and decreasing company budgets have reduced the participation at many events by both vendors and conference goers," said Jenica Egan, Editor of Green Building Journal. "Today's internet and computing technologies, such as streaming media broadcasts and flash based audience interaction tools, have allowed us to offer informative and valuable content globally. There is no better way to go green than to participate in this FREE online conference."

All conference material and exhibits will be available online at no cost to registered attendees beginning May 19, 2010 and throughout the year following the event. Those interested in speaking or exhibiting should contact by email info@gbexpo.com
