About BIG Green


The greening of business, development, government and consumer products is at an all time high and growing exponentially. Rising energy costs, new laws, and growing demand for environmentally friendly consumer products continue to drive the green marketplace. In 2010, the BIG Green Expo & Conference took place at the Phoenix Convention Center in Downtown Phoenix. It is Arizona’s largest green conference — with 200 exhibitors and more than 10,000 individuals participating in the event. The BIG Green Expo & Conference targets both the commercial and residential industries. The expo showcases sustainable products and services impacting every area of life. Those attending the conference will hear from prominent industry voices on both a local and national level, who will share their insight and knowledge of an environmental-friendly future. Some speakers in attendance were Colin Tetreault (Topic: LEED is DEAD, The Next Evolution of Business), Loretta Hall (Topic: Earth Sheltering for Sustainable Public Buildings), Adam Robbins (Topic: The LED Revolution: Learn about LED technology) and Diane Brossart (Topic: Sustainable & How You Can Be Part of the Solution). Whether you’re a savvy homeowner looking to create a more sustainable home, or a business owner looking to create a greener space for employees — the BIG Green Expo & Conference has something for everyone.
