WHERE GOVERNMENT PROFESSIONALS PURCHASE GREEN SOLUTIONS

WHEN: November 9-10, 2010 WHERE: Walter E Washington Convention Center

The GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition provides an independent forum where government professionals charged with greening the government can learn, network and find tools, technologies and solutions. Located in Washington, DC to provide easy-access for the widest range of government professionals, the GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition is nonpartisan, representing no one point of view, interest group or agency. Why GOVGREEN? Federal agencies are mandated by Executive Order to meet a broad range of aggressive targets to make all operations more green and sustainable. These mandates affect every part of agency operations and involve program managers agency-wide. It is the mission of GOVGREEN and its parent organization, the Center for Environmental Innovation and Leadership, to provide a one-stop information resource for those program managers through our website (CEILeadership.org) and the GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition. The government green marketplace is unparalleled. The federal government owns 500,000 buildings, 600,000 vehicles and buys $500 billion of goods and services annually. The new mandates touch every aspect of those buildings and vehicles, and require that purchased goods be green (or more green). In addition, $120 billion of recovery funds are targeted specifically to green and sustainable programs. At the same time there are over 460,000 businesses registered to do business with the federal government—and that number represents only companies on GSA schedules. Over 2.7 million civilians and military personnel are employed by the federal government and more than 340,000 are located in the Washington, DC area. The competition for any one company or product to be selected is great. Participation at GOVGREEN enables marketers to: ƒ Be recognized as a vendor of green goods and services ƒ Generate leads from active government buyers


ƒ Build your brand and establish your company as a thought leader ƒ Network within the green government community The GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition brings together government managers charged with developing and implementing green government programs as well as industry and government thought leaders to exchange ideas, solve problems, identify solutions for agency or department adoption and engage with vendors and solution providers.

PROGRAM Seminars will be presented by government, industry and academic experts experienced in green and sustainable programs. Seminar topics will be vetted by an Advisory Council of government professionals and will address the specific mandates outlined in EO 13514 organized in the following program tracts:: •

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Transportation Management and Alternate Fuels

Conservation—Water, Wastewater/Stormwater, Waste Management/Recycling

Facility Design, Management, and WorkForce

Programming will include panel discussions, breakouts focusing on case histories and best practices and discussion groups dedicated to technical topics—all designed to facilitate information-sharing across agencies, programs and disciplines.

PRODUCTS GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition is the key venue to showcase green products, services and solutions to a specialized audience ready to buy. The exhibit floor features pavillions devoted to the program areas to facilitate interaction. Exhibitors will be invited to present WorkGroup sessions on the show floor to further educate attendees on products and services. Educational sessions will be scheduled to allow attendees time on the show floor. In addition, show floor activity will include: •

CEIL Achievement Awards

Plenary session speakers

Coffee breaks

Networking receptions

Extreme Green Pavilion (new product area)

Exhibitor Workshops


On-floor video interviews will be broadcast at the event and posted to the CEILeadership.org website. After GOVGREEN, a web promotion program will continue to showcase the interviews. Webcasts of key seminar programs will also be posted on the site. Attendance to GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition is expected to top 2000 government and military attendees.

SOLUTIONS The GOVGREEN Conference and Exposition is the one place where public servants, thought leaders and private sector innovators can meet to network and collaborate to find the best solutions to achieve green government mandates. Green technology is a broad area and, like the early days of the information technology revolution, the technology evolves almost daily. The government’s mandate to go green is equally broad, requiring managers to make informed decisions about services and products. The result is a critical need for information sharing and collaboration between the government and private sector. GOVGREEN is uniquely positioned to facilitate this collaboration.
