The Mission of the Virtual Summit 2011 is to inform, share, and create a global social media experience for learning and networking via the power of the Internet.
In addition to raising awareness of our market and industry, the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 is an interactive platform for the interchange of ideas through a combination of keynote speakers, expert panels, moderated chat sessions with live Q & A, on-demand presentations, plus live video chatting at the Sponsor Meeting Rooms, Networking Lounge, and the spectacular 24-hour Expo Pavilions showcasing vendors and organizations from across the world.
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. Every day, the new ubiquity of architectural greening gains new advocates, designers, and specifiers - be cutting edge by participating!
The Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 enhances the conference going experience on a global level without the expense of travel, lodging, and more:
Individuals and businesses can connect virtually and easily using a multi-dimensional and immersive architecture.
The Social Collaboration Network (SCN) feature of the Virtual Experience Platform lets each user collaborate privately and publicly with a flexible, “living” social network comprised of attendees, exhibitors and speakers.
Interact and participate real time in moderated Q & A sessions with featured speakers and expert panels.
Attendees can leisurely roam our targeted live Expo Pavilions including the North American Pavilion and the International Pavilion – chat live, see video presentations and download product literature from manufacturers, suppliers + professionals. Visit the Associates Pavilion on demand.
Exhibitors can successfully engage hundreds more key project stakeholders with a wide variety of eye catching, interactive tools.
The Virtual Experience draws highly visible, yet far-flung experts who otherwise might not be available to present, drawing more participants.
For the price of a standard one-hour webinar, you can easily afford 48 hours + 30 archived days of exciting sessions.

"There are a couple of great reasons this event is important. First, it represents greenroofs.com taking their leadership to the next level of bringing in people, ideas, and information together. It’s quite logical after all. Greenroofs.com has been aggregating news sources, inviting guest columnists and editors to their site, and participating in many various green roof forums for more than a decade. The ‘logical’ next step is to get information out in more dynamic ways, with online interactions between presenters and attendees." ~ John Shepley
