Coming Up: West Coast Green

There are a handful of conferences every year that 3p gets involved with. One of the longest running and most worthwhile, especially for folks in the green building sector is West Coast Green – to be held from October 1-3 in San Francisco’s Ft. Mason.

Bigger and better seems to be a running theme this year at the events we frequent – always a good sign in the context of spreading sustainability far and wide. Look for two tracks at this years West Coast Green that will expand the agenda outside of the building sector – Business & the New Economy as well as Social Innovation with speakers and panelists ranging from Mayor Gavin Newsom, Ray Anderson and yours truly.

As always – 3p readers can get a healthy discount as follows:
1) FREE Tradeshow Floor Passes

We’ll be giving the event lots of coverage, so if you’re not local, don’t forget to follow us on twitter and check back for updates right here.
