Discover Brilliant International Conference and Expo, to be held September 17-19, 2007, is now accepting nominations for their Brilliant Awards.

of decisions that will leave a strong sustainable economy as a legacy to the next

is the Brilliant Building – a building that demonstrates the marriage of
economic value on metrics that matter; environmental soundness in building and

their firm or region," says P.S. Reilly, CEO of the Athena Media Group and
expert in this emerging sector.

sustainability we have to strive beyond green to truly Brilliant solutions that
make sense because they are economically valuable, environmentally sound and
more stable and secure."
In order to truly build the sustainable economy, the focus
of Discover Brilliant is creating more value with less impact across
communities, businesses, buildings, utilities and transportation. Day 1 will
build a picture of the landscape- what are those passions, politics and
possibilities that will shape the world in which we live? The second day
focuses on the specific steps and implementations. The third day will feature a
series of roundtable summits that will allow leaders to explore critical
