First impressions of a first time attendee
Over all it was a well organized event, with things going forth in a very timely manner. The keynote with President Obama, was absolutely wonderful. The floor sessions were engaging and informative as well. However, I would like to see more one on one networking opportunities and smaller events and more innovative products from the industry on the trade floor. I thought the actual products were quite few and one or two that were not really industry relevant.Translate

A great mix of content, speakers and people.
Greenbuild 2019 not only happened in Atlanta where I practice, the mix of speakers, tour locations, content delivered and networking opportunities couldn't have been better. The breadth and depth of issues covered really appealed to me, ranging across health, resiliency, climate change, equity, ecosystems, building efficiency and sustainable design. I particularly appreciated USGBC's holistic focus via its Living Standard campaign based on storytelling. While the LEED rating system remains a star attraction, it is now one of the several stars. Besides attending, I had volunteered on the tours committee which gave me a newfound appreciation for all the background effort that goes into planning a successful event like this one.Translate

Greenbuild: evolving, still valuable
Context: I utilize Greenbuild primarily as a networking and education opportunity. I attending in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 ... then a hiatus and have restarted again. Overall, I find the commercial feel has risen. Sponsorships are important, but I was noticing many businesses as underwriters who have complex environmental records (or political alliances that cast doubt on environmental commitment). Education sessions are still solid. I was happy that ours got strong attendance (early Friday morning, tough slot) and went to another good one right after that. The Expo floor seemed to be missing several of the regulars this year. Even so, it was a valuable conglomerate of companies and had both networking and education value. I was pleased with the number of small talks on the floor; I like that addition (although acoustics are a challenge). Keynotes are usually strong; I enjoyed Obama and Jeanne Gang (tho I wish she'd asked me to proofread her deck; typo ouch). I plan to attend in San Diego (although I am distinctly NOT pleased that it's the week of the election). As someone who has attended these for more than 15 years (not every year), I think that the clarity of pu... Show moreTranslate

Great Overall Experience
Greenbuild Atlanta was the second Greenbuild Conference I have attended. The education I have received from these events is invaluable and the people you meet are amazing! The wealth of knowledge and the willingness to share that knowledge from everyone involved, is something you just can’t put a price on. I highly recommend the Greenbuild Conference for anyone whether they are looking to get in to the field of sustainability or have been in the field for years!Translate
