Coming Up: Opportunity Green Los Angeles

opp-green.jpgOne of the few complaints I’ve had this conference season is the relatively small number of conferences taking place outside the San Francisco Bay Area. Though it’s nice to be at the center of the action, it sometimes feels a little like the choir is preaching to itself. Karen Solomon, the mastermind behind Opportunity Green agrees, and has put together what will be arguably one of this year’s most exciting events – November 7-8 at UCLA in Los Angeles.

LA is the center of the world’s popular culture and a global trend setter in business, communications and entertainment. So, getting forward thinking business people together there to talk about making business greener on a larger scale not only makes sense, it’s critical. The attendee list is a who’s who of business large and small, those you might think of as having green at their soul and many you might identify as newcomers to the conversation. Most importantly, in it’s third year, the conference aims to make a larger splash than ever this year bringing new media attention to sustainable efforts by companies, entrepreneurs, and change agents of all stripes.
