West Coast Green 2010 has finally arrived. As famous as it is cutting-edge, West Coast Green at San Francisco‘s Fort Mason Center is the world’s leading interactive conference on green innovation for the built environment. Whatever your business may be, there is much to be gained from Sept. 30 through Oct. 2, when a stellar assembly of leaders and thinkers come together to discuss our nation’s green economy.
So, where to start? Check out Speaker Highlights such as William McDonough, author of Cradle to Cradle, Doug Davis from Intel Corporation and green pre-fab guru Michelle Kaufman, or prepare to have your mind blown at the Innovation Pipeline Expo (kolelinio, anyone?).
For those of us that can’t attend in person, there’s a Virtual Pass to view all keynotes and sessions live from your computer. Plus, a soon-to-be-available iPhone app will keep you on schedule and provide important updates.
