The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is one of the largest trade events for sustainable building practices in the world. Greenbuild is presented by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and brings together some of the most influential thought leaders in the construction industry.
Tens of thousands of attendees gather at the conference every year from across the green building sector, spanning commercial and residential professionals, architects, building owners and operators, students, advocates, and educators.
This year, Enterprise Ireland supported a group of Irish companies with products and services for the sustainable building and construction industry. The companies attended the expo in Chicago, Illinois to learn about new opportunities and trends in the industry and to have the opportunity to network with key people from the industry. And while in Illinois, Enterprise Ireland also set up meetings with some of the largest construction companies in Chicago.
“We used the opportunity of being in Chicago to meet with key people in the construction industry,” said Caroline Donnelly, Vice President of Construction Products and Services, Enterprise Ireland, USA. “Our team gained valuable insights on industry trends and opportunities, and our companies received great feedback on their products and services.”
Donnelly added that many good connections were made throughout the expo and with the networking events. Companies that the team met with included Clune Construction, Gensler, DLR Group, Gilbane Construction, and Walsh Construction among other that we met at the show and networking events throughout the conference.
“Irish construction companies have an unequaled and well-earned reputation for delivering large, complex projects internationally,” said Donnelly. “Irish companies follow a winning formula to deliver a flexible, problem-solving approach and a commitment to embracing the latest advances in construction technology.”
