"The conference program appeals to all sectors of the Canadian economy, and is designed to be an informative and educational experience for builders, developers, architects, engineers, designers, utility providers, contractors, commercial realtors, property management, financiers, and academia" says Ron Lemaire, VP Market Development at CaGBC.

Vancouver provides the spectacular backdrop to the event, with the recent accomplishment of over 30 new buildings reaching LEED status, including the venue host - The Vancouver Convention Center achieving LEED Platinum. The conference program will also include a green building tour of UBC, The Richmond Oval and the Vancouver Convention Center.
