Getting the Most From the Green Festival
Green Festival Preview: What to Expect,
Lessons Learned, How to Maximize Your Experience
Get ready for perhaps the biggest Green event this year in Chicago: Green Festival, May 17 & 18 at Navy Pier. Last year, over 30,000 packed McCormick Place during this two-day consumer-oriented weekend event that includes a wide range of speakers and workshops, in addition to hundreds of exhibitors. It's likely to be even more popular this year.
Whether you are an exhibitor, an interested business owner/manager, or a sustainability-minded attendee, our panel of Green Festival veterans will help you get the most out of your time there. We'll explore everything from what it is, to how best to navigate it, to how to use it to make connections, get attention, build your brand, and make sales! We'll also touch on plans for the 3-day Green Business Conference that immediately precedes it.
