According to the U.S. Green Building Council, the products and services market for green building is expected to exceed $12 billion in 2007. Virtually every new construction and retrofit project undertaken today includes some element of green design.
For designers and specifiers of mechanical systems, this explosive green building market means huge potential for growth. EGB 2007, the only green-design event dedicated to mechanical systems in non-residential buildings, presents an opportunity for contractors and engineers to learn how to be “greener” and provides the knowledge and skills you need to “go for the green” in the profitable green-design arena.
GROW GREENER AT EGB 2007
EGB 2007 offers technical and professional knowledge that will help attendees succeed and make their companies more profitable in the buildings design and construction industry. The educational sessions contractors and engineers will:
* Learn how green building requirements apply to mechanical systems.
* Find out how mechanical systems can be designed to help a building project achieve LEED certification.
* Attend sessions on energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor environmental quality and sustainability.
* Hear first-hand about green applications in current Las Vegas projects such as the $7 billion MGM CityCenter.
* Discover how Clark County is using green building applications and solutions to reduce operating costs and improve indoor air quality for schools and government facilities.
* Meet vendors demonstrating the green characteristics and applications of their mechanical systems, components, equipment, software, technology and services.
A MUST-ATTEND EVENT
EGB 2007 is a must-attend event for all professionals involved in the design, construction, commissioning, operation, and maintenance of commercial buildings.
This year’s EGB event will be held September 17-18 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and features special emphasis on green-engineering for hospitality, education and government buildings. More than 20 sessions are scheduled, including:
* Innovative Ventilation Systems in Green Buildings presented by Dale Holland, PE, LEED PE
* The Path to Earning LEED Credits and Certification presented by Hernando Miranda, AIA, LEED AP, ME
* The Present and Future of Green Technology presented by Ben Erpelding, PE, CEM
* The Price of Going Green: How to Make it Cost-Effective presented by Peter D’Antonio, CEM, LEED AP, PE
* The Role of Air Filtration in Green Buildings presented by David Matela
* Turn Your Mechanical Systems into Green Machines presented by Tom Meyer
* Water Management Measures that Save Resources and Money presented by Doug Bennett
EGB 2007 is still more than two months away and we realize people tend to make conference and travel plans at the eleventh hour. That’s why we’re extending our Early Bird Offer through the end of July. Register by July 31 at the Early Bird price of $499 and save $150. This is a bargain for two days of in-depth presentations by top mechanical system engineers and designers. After July 31, the full-conference price will be $649.
