What to Wear

Early Morning: Bring a few pairs of exercise clothes in case you'd like to participate in our free morning wellness activities. We offer complimentary yoga and our popular morning run/walk club.  

During the Day: Most attendees and exhibitors dress business casual or how you'd dress if you're going into your office. Remember to bring comfortable footwear (you'll do a ton of walking!), and don't forget to bring a coat! We will also offer a coat/bag check near the registration desk for your convenience. 

Evening Events: Many attendees also dress in business casual attire for the evening events, including the Welcome Reception, Greenbuild Gala, and after party. You can certainly dress up if you'd prefer (but it's not required). 

What to Bring

On day 1 of Greenbuild, you'll want to check in at the registration desk. That's where you'll pick up your badge. IMPORTANT: Bring your badge to all Greenbuild activities, this is how you'll get access. There is a fee for badge reprints so don't lose this! 

Bring a reusable waterbottle. We will offer various water refill stations - and discourage single-use plastic containers to maintain our sustainability practices. 

Business cards. You'll be meeting lots of different people at Greenbuild, so bring business cards, company materials etc. to easily share info and make connections.
