The USGBC-Illinois Chapter is partnering with CSI Chicago for- our first annual product show & conference, featuring a full array of educational opportunities, exhibit showcases, and networking. The GREENER BY DESIGN Conference and Expo, to be held on Thursday, October 4 at Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Training Center offers a full day of exhibits, GBCI and AIA approved continuing education seminars, and a networking happy hour at the conclusion.

Why Exhibit?

Develop New Prospects

The event schedule will provide the time to build relationships with decision-makers and product-specifiers throughout the day and at an evening networking event. The exhibitor floor is free to those not attending the education seminars and will provide education credits to those visiting the space. It is expected that 400 persons will attend the exhibit hall during the day.

Attendees and exhibitors will experience an expansive exhibitor space furnished with mock-ups and real-life equipment that will add to the technical experience and provide additional construction knowledge for design & construction professionals. Our goal is to provide a venue to share information about trends, technology and products in the green building arena. We invite you to showcase the products that position your company as a visionary leader related to green design.
