Top 5 things not to miss at Greenbuild Europe in Amsterdam

Selina Holmes

Greenbuild Europe 2019 in Amsterdam is more than a conference—it’s days of inspiration, learning and celebration and includes nearly 50 hours of educational content from which to choose. Taking place March 19-20 at the Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre, the event promises so much to see and do that we’ve provided a list to help you make the most of your Greenbuild experience.

1. Networking and celebrations

In 2018 at Greenbuild Europe, nearly 400 leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building convened in Berlin. Sectors represented included architecture, construction, nonprofits, professional services, real estate and more.

Greenbuild also serves as a meeting place for those in the green building community to connect, exchange strategies and deliver solutions. This year we’ve added a new component to the show—an exhibition space that allows you to connect directly with industry leaders. This area also features the IWBI Lounge.

Delta | Global GreenTag Product Certification | GrayWolf Sensing Solutions | Kath Williams + Associates | Kaiterra | Knauf Insulation | Measurabl | One Click LCA | Solatube
