Two Can’t Miss Events: Sustainability Syposium 2018 and Flex House at CES

Flex House at CES

Green Builder Media is bursting with excitement as we get ready for two prominent events that will take place in early January.

Green Builder Media is hosting two events in early January—the Sustainability Symposium 2018: Champions of Change and the Flex House at CES. If you’re going to be in Orlando or Vegas (or both!) for Design & Construction Week or CES, or if you just want an excuse for a meaningful post-holiday getaway, please join us!

The first event, Sustainability Symposium 2018: Champions of Change, is a pioneering thought leadership summit that we are hosting with the City of Orlando and Mayor Dyer on January 8, 2018 at the University of Central Florida campus in Orlando, Fla.

The event is strategically planned the day before the show floor opens at Design and Construction Week (which includes the co-located International Builders Show and the Kitchen and Bath Show) to highlight the greener side of the building industry, as well as the vast frontiers of a sustainable future.

The just released Symposium agenda is brimming with an undeniable lineup of true visionaries who are facilitating leading-edge projects and affecting tangible change, including the likes of

  • Paul Hawken (considered to be one of the fathers of the sustainability movement and master-mind of a comprehensive plan for reversing global warming)
  • Jeremy Rifkin (esteemed economist and sustainability expert working with leaders across the globe on smart city initiatives),
  • Governor Martin O’Malley (former Mayor of Baltimore and Governor of Maryland working towards a 100% renewable energy America by 2030)
  • Buddy Dyer (Mayor of Orlando leading the city to embrace advanced sustainability initiatives)
  • Laura Turner Seydel (media mogul Ted Turner’s daughter implementing smart city initiatives with the City of Atlanta.)

The second event will take place at CES (a.k.a the Consumer Electronics Show) in Vegas from January 9-12.  The largest annual show in the country, I liken CES to Disneyland for adults.  Allow your imagination to stretch as far as it possibly can, and whatever innovation you can envision, it’s probably at CES.  A veritable bevvy of flying cars, drones, virtual reality apparatus, robots, wearables, smart home devices, and every gadget that you never knew that you always wanted—it’s there.

In conjunction with our partner Shelter Dynamics, we’re bringing our small-footprint, net-zero energy, smart + solar Flex House demonstration project to what’s undoubtedly now (sans Ringling Bros. Circus) the greatest show on earth.

New Call-to-action

Our strategy with the Flex House is to infiltrate CES with some context about why all of those amazing technologies from companies like Bosch, Emerson, Amazon Alexa, Belkin, WeMo, Jinko Solar, Toyota, Greenworks tools, Rachio, and Sylvania are actually are important.  Our goal is to help attendees understand that these devices aren’t just cool, but they also serve an important purpose: streamlining resource use, creating optimized demand side energy management strategies, conserving water, improving health and indoor air quality, keeping our families safe and protected.  And yes, they’re cool too.

If you’re planning to attend CES—and, seriously, why wouldn’t you?—don’t miss the Flex House at booth CP-10, located right outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center near the main conference registration tent.

We offer our warmest and most sincere invitation to join us at the Sustainability Symposium 2018 and the Flex House at CES.  I promise you mind-expanding, soul-arousing, spirit-lifting, imagination-stirring experiences.
