Informa Exhibitions, USGBC and the Boston Society of Architects/AIA announced Greenbuild and ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) will be co-located for 2017.

The events will take place the week of Nov. 6-10 and both will be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) in Boston, MA, creating one of the largest events for the building community in North America.

“Greenbuild and ABX co-located back in 2008 in Boston, both shows happening at different venues but the same week, creating significant, lasting synergies between the two events as well as holding the record for the largest attended Greenbuild to date,” said Lindsay Roberts, group director, Informa Exhibitions.

“This is an incredibly positive opportunity for us to bring two very significant events together again, this time in the same facility, and allowing us to better serve the building community by offering more educational, networking and exhibition opportunities throughout the week.”

Greenbuild annually attracts over 18,000 attendees and over 500 exhibiting companies with a broad audience that spans the sustainable building community. ABX draws over 8,000 attendees and over 400 exhibiting companies.

"ABX is the largest annual building industry event in the Northeast and it thrives because of our robust cross-industry partnerships.” said Josiah Stevenson FAIA, 2017 BSA president.

"By co-locating with Greenbuild, we can ensure an even greater depth and diversity of ideas and topics presented to the full spectrum of building industry professionals."

Specific details are currently in development and will be released as they become available. Each show will contact its exhibitors in the coming weeks to begin discussions for formal plans for the 2017 exhibit hall, which will be one comprehensive space accessible to attendees of both events.

“Greenbuild 2017 will be aptly themed, “All In,” to encompass the breadth and diversity of the sustainability and green building movement. When we come together, we are one community of professionals, advocates and practitioners, students and teachers, designers and builders and everything in between,” said Kate Hurst, vice president, Community Advancement, Conferences & Events, USGBC.

“Partnering with a respected regional event like ABX will provide our audience with more dynamic opportunities to engage, learn and interact with other professionals and leaders in the industry.”
