Attend this NJ green building conference without leaving the office


You suspect there may be valuable things to see and learn at the Jan. 12-14 New Jersey Builders Association's Green Build Event and Expo but you don't know how you'd possibly find that time and to travel to and tour the event.

Fortunately, you won't need to. The only travel involved is the distance to your computer and you can budget the time whenever you find some. That's because this three-day event, featuring educational tracks, an exhibit hall, and keynote presentations is all online.

Yes, it's a 'virtual trade show' you can attend via your computer. No travel, parking, lines, or aggressive salespeople. You can cruise this one in your pajamas if you like (no one will know).

Still, event promoters promise you'll gain access to:

"leading experts in residential construction, commercial and industrial development, remodeling and redevelopment, governmental policy, and marketing who will present informative and educational seminars throughout the three-day conference" PLUS...

"...a virtual exhibit hall will feature the latest products and services pertaining to green building, so that all participants can maximize their investment of time and resources,"
