Event Platform Provider
In 2013
the Virtual Summit will be powered by INXPO.

"With its proven virtual event technology, we selected INXPO because of what they bring to the table for a successful digital event.  Simplicity and power are the keys to an even richer online experience for our worldwide greenroof and wall community." ~ Aramis M. Velazquez, CEO, Greenroofs.com

Why Virtual?
As important as physical conferences are, the proliferation of international events makes it impossible to exhibit and attend them all in terms of time and money.  At a fraction of the cost of a physical conference, you have an incredible opportunity to meet and greet awesome experts and practitioners in our field - without leaving your office.  Every day, the new ubiquity of architectural greening gains new advocates, designers, and specifiers - be cutting edge by connecting and participating!

Stay tuned!
