The United States Green Building Council announced that Greenbuild for Europe and the Mediterranean region will launch in Verona, Italy, in 2014.

“Greenbuild for Europe and the Mediterranean region is part of the global expansion of the successful Greenbuild Conference and Expo brand,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO, and founding chair of the U.S.Green Building Council. “USGBC and Hanley Wood entered into a strategic partnership earlier this year with plans to expand the conference and the Greenbuild brand. This new experience will serve as a platform for green building knowledge and shared expertise across continents, while scaling the breadth and reach of global market transformation.”

Greenbuild 2013 marked the 12th anniversary of Greenbuild, and the 20th anniversary of USGBC. Greenbuild for the U.S. will be held in November 2014 in New Orleans, in addition to Greenbuild for Europe and the Mediterranean region in Verona, Italy.

"Greenbuild for Europe and the Mediterranean region will be all about green building,” said Rick McConnell, president of Hanley Wood Exhibitions. “Combining the resources of GBC Italia, USGBC, Veronafiere, and Hanley Wood to deliver cutting edge education, the conference will feature top speakers in sustainability and combine the live event experience of Veronafiere and Hanley Wood. This indeed is going to be a game changer."

A call for proposals for all Greenbuild conferences will be open on December 9, 2013. Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for presenters and topics via www.greenbuildexpo.org.
