This year, IIDA is proud to partner with Greenbuild, the largest sustainable building event in the U.S., for a truly monumental week in Washington, D.C. It all kicks off Nov. 18 and continues through Nov. 20 at the Washington Convention Center. In addition to industry leaders, experts, and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building in their everyday work, prepare to be invigorated by an itinerary of inspiring events. Below are five reasons to register for 2015 Greenbuild today.

  • Green Building Tours

Go beyond the walls of the Washington Convention Center and into some of the celebrated buildings in our Nation’s capital. Take half-day or full-day tours of buildings and exhibits like Hotel Monaco, once the U.S. General Post Office; the 12,000 square foot LEED certified Seal & Sea Lion Exhibit at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park; and the National Geographic Society’s Headquarters, one of the first existing buildings in the country to receive LEED certification.

  • Greenbuild Master Series

The Greenbuild Master Series brings together leaders of diverse industries who share the common trait of championing sustainability and green building. Listen to Chief Product Officer Scot Horst and Chief Operating Officer Mahesh Ramanujam present a vision of the future of the U.S. Green Building Council that includes an integrated platform of tools based on performance. Or catch Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Elizabeth Kolbert whose series on global warming, The Climate of Man, won the American Association for the Advancement of Science magazine’s award.

  • Women in Green Power Breakfast

This year’s Women in Green Power Breakfast will examine the impact gender has on mentorship.  Stripping away convention, the breakfast will ask attendees to take an honest, frank look at the attitudes and insecurities of women and men within the work place. Five generations of trailblazers will call upon attendees to demonstrate leadership as individuals and as an industry towards a truly equitable workplace. You won’t want to miss this.

  • Greenbuild Film Festival

Watch films that matter. The Ninth Annual Greenbuild International Film Festival will feature documentaries, films, and informational videos that promote innovative green building practices and address social, environmental, and health topics related to the built environment.

  • 2015 Greenbuild Celebration

Sustainability doesn’t have to be so serious! Eat, drink, and dance yourself green with Fitz and the Tantrums at the famed Newseum for the 2015 Greenbuild Celebration.

Are you hyped now? We thought so. Get on it. Early bird registration ends before Monday, Sept. 14, 2015. Celebrate another year in one of the greenest cities in the country. See you in Washington!
