USGBC to continue to deliver education, events

July 22/29; Volume 27/Number 7

Washington—Hanley Wood and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently announced a strategic partnership whereby Hanley Wood has acquired the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.

USGBC will continue to produce Greenbuild’s hallmark programming: plenaries, education, popular pre-conference sector summits, USGBC Leadership Awards and other special events that make Greenbuild the leading conference and expo for the green building movement. Hanley Wood’s expertise in exhibition and conference management along with its media, information and strategic marketing services will enable Green-build to expand to its next level domestically and help position the brand globally, noted Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood.

Greenbuild is the largest global event dedicated to green building, with over 900 exhibiting companies, 171,000 net square feet and 30,000 attendees. This year’s conference—to be held Nov. 20 to 22 in Philadelphia—marks the 12th anniversary of Greenbuild, and the 20th anniversary of USGBC.

“The U.S. Green Building Council has established Greenbuild as the must-attend event in the sustainable construction industry, making this acquisition a natural fit for Hanley Wood,” said Goldstone. “Greenbuild is a powerful community driven by a passion for creating a socially responsible and healthy environment that improves our quality of life. We’re thrilled to partner with USGBC and advance the community’s mission by expanding this important and globally significant event.”

“Through Hanley Wood’s commitment to Greenbuild, USGBC can now accelerate investment in our core mission,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair of USGBC. “One of the reasons we chose to partner with Hanley Wood is because of its commitment to maintain and build upon those essential qualities of Greenbuild that make it such a unique experience.

“This partnership creates an opportunity for USGBC and our members to expand the green building marketplace,” he concluded, “broaden our influence on green building policy, enhance the tools that improve building performance, increase our focus on human health and social equity, and put an emphasis on new and existing homes.”
