It’s the beginning of January, which can only mean one thing: CES! Ocean of innovation, CES boasts everything from autonomous cars to smart home devices to virtual reality to wearables to all things mobile. This year, CES doesn’t stand alone—the conference overlaps with Design and Construction week in Orlando, and Green Builder Media’s own Sustainability Symposium, which promises to be the sustainability event of the year!

Green Builder Media is bursting with excitement about two major events, both taking place next week.

The first event, Sustainability Symposium 2018: Champions of Change, co-hosted with the City of Orlando and Mayor Dyer on Monday, January 8, 2018 at the University of Central Florida, promises to be one of the most important and inspiring engagements of the year.  If you truly care about a sustainable future and want to participate in the development of strategies for the transition to a zero carbon economy, this is a can’t-miss opportunity. 

The Symposium 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 stellar agenda is brimming with an undeniable lineup of true visionaries who are facilitating leading-edge projects and affecting tangible change—people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, and proving that they can successfully do so. 

If you’re going to be in Orlando on Monday, you really don’t want to miss the Sustainability Symposium—I promise, it will be well worth your time.  We’re almost at max capacity, so click here to register today!

Meanwhile, at CES in Las Vegas from January 9-12, Green Builder Media and partner Shelter Dynamics will feature our small-footprint, net-zero energy, smart + solar Flex Housedemonstration project.   

The Flex House, the latest of Green Builder Media’s esteemed VISION House demonstration project series, is designed to help homeowners use exactly the amount of resources they need to live affordably and abundantly without unduly taxing the resources of our beautiful planet.  

Our strategy with the Flex House is to infiltrate CES with some context about why all of those amazing technologies 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, admittedly, they’re cool too.
