As an attendee you have many opportunities available not only to enhance your understanding of our fast-paced world of greenroofs & greenwalls but also to share your own thoughts and experiences with colleagues – it’s a two-way street on this information highway!

Where else could you meet up with people located around the world at one time?  Here are some of your benefits of registering:

  • Watch and re-watch video presentations from 30+ international speakers on many different subjects in the Rare Earth Auditorium through May 31, 2015.  See the Agenda.  And earn up to 10 GRP CEU’s from Green Roofs for Healthy Cities!  See the rest online.
  • Better yet, participate in the speakers’ live Q & A Sessions during The Live Social Weekend Hangout on Friday, Saturday, & Sunday April 10, 11 & 12.  Interact and create a dialogue via video (first come, first served) and text chatting.  Ask these far-flung experts and practitioners questions that you might never be able to see at a physical conference!  See the Agenda-at-a-Glance for times – more to be finalized.
  • Create your own under 3-minute video about your work, research, ideas, etc., and highlight it in the Inspiration Nook – become a thought leader yourself!  It doesn’t need to be fancy or complicated – just get the word out about you.  You may even have something all ready to go.  Submit it in time for The Live Social Weekend Hangout and we’ll add you to the Agenda and Speakers pages.  Where else could you have the opportunity to expose your work to hundreds of people?
  • Learn about awesome people, products, and services in the Expo Pavilion on Saturday & Sunday during the Live Social Weekend Hangout.  Visit and chat with our wonderful Sponsors and Exhibitors in their booths, watch their videos, download their info and pick their brains.

  • Visit personally with insightful industry leaders and reps at the Tremco Meeting Room in an exclusive, private setting.
