  • Rare Earth Auditorium for live Q & A Sessions with our speakers

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.
  • Connect with friends and make new ones at the “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere!” Networking Lounge – which, by the way, is actually open 24/7 through May 31st.  Start a public chat and see what happens.  Tell your colleagues to join you there at a specific time and day for a private chat and connect via video if you want to.  Looking or a job or do you have one available?  Network here at the JobLinks Fair on Saturday & Sunday during the Live Social Weekend Hangout.  Meet some of the Greenroofs.com Contributing Editors!
  • Visit personally with insightful industry leaders and reps at the Tremco Meeting Room in an exclusive, private setting.
  • Do all this with any computer or mobile device.  Take the Virtual Summit 2015 with you!

The Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 Runs Through October 28!

October 6, 2011 at 10:05 am

Our vision of producing and sharing the virtual experience to our industry with our inaugural Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 was successful, and we couldn’t have done it without the great support of many people, in particular our main patron, Rare Earth Sponsor  TREMCO, along with Emerald Sponsor American Hydrotech.

Thanks again also to our Exhibitors  Grant Associates,  Green Living Technologies,  Green Roof Blocks,  GreenGrid Roofs,  Green Roof Plants,  ILD,  J-DRain, and  Roofmeadow – although the lifeblood of any conference is its speakers, the sponsors and exhibitors make it happen – none of this would have been possible without their financial support!

We are so proud to have put together the most amazing community of talented international speakers that you could have asked for – all leaders in their fields.  See the Speakers page and read all about them and their presentations.

Speaking of our Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Speakers, I’d like to stress that although the 2 live days have passed, the end of the Virtual Summit is on October 28 – if you missed out on September 27 & 28, you can still register until October 28!

You can’t beat the price of only $49 – or $25 for students/faculty/government professionals to access all 32 of our great panel sessions, interviews, presentations, and live Q & A commentary plus see the latest from manufacturer/supplier and organization/government exhibitors.

Visit all of our truly unique and innovative areas  within the virtual environment: the Rare Earth and On Demand Auditoriums, the Tremco Meeting Room, the Sky Terrace Networking Lounge, the Media Lounge, and the International, North American & Associates Pavilions at the Expo – did you know you can still chat with your fellow online attendees either in a public or private via video, audio, or text while logged in?

We’re putting together an awesome Highlights Video of our wonderful participants to give you a taste of what you are missing – look for it soon!  We hope to see you still in Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011!  Register  here.

Love the Earth, Plant a Roof!
