HPAC Engineering's annual Engineering Green Buildings (EGB) Conference, part of HVACR Week, offers exceptional opportunities for you to meet and learn from leading green-industry gurus, such as Ron Wilkinson, Peter D’Antonio, and Don Beaty.

EGB Conference sessions will cover timely topics, such as Smart Grid, commissioning, and building energy-rating systems. Additionally, your EGB registration provides access to all HVACR WEEK 2010 functions, including:

• Any conference session of your choice, including those for HVAC Comfortech and the Commercial HVACR Symposium.
• The HVACR WEEK Product Showcase, where the latest HVACR products and technologies are on full display.

• The Thursday Night Extravaganza.
• The welcome reception.
• And more!

Here's a unique benefit of EGB that often is overlooked: As a critical component of HVACR WEEK, the EGB Conference extends your networking opportunities into the commercial-contracting community. Meet and converse with mechanical contractors and gain their perspectives on mechanical-systems design, including green-engineering challenges.
