IWBC announces collaboration with The Greenbuild International Conference + Expo

Littleton, MA — Today marks big news for the sustainability industry. Informa Connect, owner of the Greenbuild International Conference + Expo, the largest event for sustainable building in the United States, announced that the Industrialized Wood Based Construction Conference (IWBC), produced by Forest Economic Advisors, will be co-locating with Greenbuild in 2022, November 1–3, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

“As the leading green building event for the past 20 years, Greenbuild is pleased to welcome IWBC into the Greenbuild family,” said Sherida Sessa, brand director for Greenbuild. “Our journey to more sustainable, equitable practices in built spaces is increasingly dependent upon open collaboration and strong partnerships and by joining forces with IWBC, the combined communities we serve gain access to a wider array of thought leaders, solutions and resources. Offsite wood construction has several sustainability benefits, making it very synergistic with Greenbuild.”

The Greenbuild and IWBC events will take place at the same time in the Moscone Center, and attendees will have access to both expo floors ensuring new, expanded access to the latest and most cutting-edge products and ideas.

In 2021, Greenbuild was held in San Diego, CA, attracting several thousand attendees both in person and virtually. The event, which is supported by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provided access to top solutions manufacturers in the industry and 125 education sessions to give sustainability professionals the tools to improve resilience, sustainability, and quality of life in buildings, cities, and communities they serve.

The IWBC Conference, founded in 2018 and based in Boston, is the world’s only international wood-based industrialized construction conference. It has become well known, not only for the quality of its content, but also as a venue that attracts leading individuals and innovators in the rapidly expanding industrialized construction community. All forms of offsite manufacturers, including mass timber panelized and modular builders — as well as connections, machinery and software developers — meet to explore opportunities, exchange ideas, and introduce new technologies to move this industry forward.

“We are very excited to be joining the Greenbuild family,” said Art Schmon, Managing Director for IWBC. “This collaboration will advance the cause of industrialized wood-based construction and guide the industry ever closer to decarbonizing the built environment.”
