About the Slam:

A simple idea, started years ago, has transformed into one of the most fun and inspirational green building events of the year. Learn about 10 innovative, sustainable, high-performance "green" buildings that push the envelope in our built environment. Projects range from residential to multi-family to mixed use developments in the Seattle area. ​

Each of our juried 10 presenters will have just 10 minutes to show us 10 slides of their exciting project as they explain what they learned, what they would do differently, and any other sustainable contributions that their project has made to our local community. Each presenter is an active member of the NW EcoBuilding Guild, has been trained by a speech coach, and is excited to share their project with the masses. Don't miss this night to remember! ​

Our audience typically attracts architects, builders, homeowners, energy efficiency experts, real estate professionals, interior designers and fabulous, eco-conscious people like you.

About the Summit:

It's a day of sharing, chatting, toasting and note-taking. An opportunity to step outside your daily routine, get inspired by our fantastic speakers, and connect with sustainable building professionals from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. We're looking forward to learning from one another, sharing best practices, and re-energizing our vision to drive the green building movement forward. Registration includes light breakfast, lunch, and networking reception (with appetizers and drinks). We always feature an outstanding keynote speaker, as well as individual sessions with industry leaders.
