Greenbuild 2015

The DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID) is pleased to announce that the 2015 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is being held in Washington, D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in the DowntownDC ecoDistrict. This conference is expected to draw over 35,000 sustainability leaders and advocates from November 18-20.

The BID is proud to be promoting the conference as a Chapter Host Committee Partner, one of twenty local organizations selected as Greenbuild partners. The BID is also participating with the Host Committee Greening Committee, which is working with local restaurants. The committee is providing information on how to make restaurant business practices more sustainable and connecting area restaurants with Greenbuild attendees. Restaurant owners and operators who want more information about the committee efforts can contact the BID directly at
