TROY, MI -- BNP Media, along with its brands -- The ACHR NEWS, ED+C, Sustainable Facility, Walls & Ceilings and World Trade 100 (WT100) -- are bringing the free Virtual Green Expo on August 5, 2010. The Expo is an online event designed to place information, peers and solution providers at attendees' fingertips.

Fast, easy, convenient and cost effective, the Expo requires no flights and no nights away from home. Attendees can just log onto a computer from the comfort of their office or home, and join the conference to attend live keynotes and conference sessions under three tracks -- Green Building, Green Manufacturing and Design and Energy and Resource Management. Attendees can also chat in real-time with industry experts moderated by ED+C and Sustainable Facility Editor Michelle Hucal, LEED AP, view technology demonstrations, visit exhibits, download collateral and network with peers.

"The event will open with keynote presenter, Kathy Loftus, Global Leader of Sustainable Engineering and Energy Management from Whole Foods Market," Hucal said. "She'll address Integrating Better Building Blocks for the Foundation of our Future. After the presentation, attendees can ask the expert, Loftus, questions via live chat and get responses live. The conference line-up will be one you don't want to miss."

"We plan to have a variety of exhibitors for attendees to see, including BASF, Duro-Last Roofing, Firestone Building Products, E-Mon and Redi Controls," says Diana Brown, Group Publisher of ED+C and Sustainable Facility.
