Place: Washington Convention Center

Washington, DC USA

WHO ATTENDS:   Engineers, Architects, Land Developers, Contractors, Building Owners, Facility Managers, Government, and Private Sector Professionals are gathering at an event that assembles built environment experts and cutting-edge resources all in one location - Washington DC. This event is for anyone who wants to maximize the effectiveness of their projects using the "Whole Building Design" Approach. The goal of 'Whole Building' Design is to create a successful high-performance building. To achieve that goal, the industry must apply the integrated design approach to the project during the planning and programming phases. It is necessary for the people involved
in the building design to interact closely throughout the design process. The owner, building occupants, and operation and maintenance personnel should be involved to capture their understanding of how the building and its systems will work for them once they occupy it. The fundamental challenge of 'whole buildings' design is to understand that all building systems are interdependent.

More than a tradeshow...

As an exhibitor or sponsor, this event offers you more than a booth at the event. You and your company are invited to participate actively in the entire event including keynotes, conferences, receptions and more.

Each exhibitor receives:

Two complete seminar passes to our conference program
