NFM&T 2004 to Introduce Exhibit on Sustainable Facility Technologies
December 19, 2004
To demonstrate how sustainability is transforming the facilities marketplace, the National Facilities Management and Technology Conference/Exposition (NFM&T) will introduce "Walking The Green Talk," a freestanding, self-guided exhibit that illustrates the technologies that make up a sustainable facility. As a compliment to NFM&T 2004 being held March 9-11, the "Walking The Green Talk" exhibit will be located in the Camden Lobby of the Baltimore Convention Center in close proximity to NFM&T conference sessions. A variety of technologies and products will be discussed, including alternative energy, the building envelope, mechanical systems, lighting and daylighting, interiors, IAQ, and the building site itself. Case studies of a variety of high-performance facilities will deliver new insight into the benefits of sustainable technologies in commercial, medical, educational, and governmental facilities. In addition, information on resources such as the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program will also be featured. Corporate sponsors of this special educational exhibit include, Forbo, The Invironmentalists, Johnson Controls, Inc., Johnson Diversey, Milliken, and Philips Lighting.
