Green Energy Times attended this event on Wednesday, March 10th, and can only wish that everyone who reads this could head on down there today and/or that you all make arrangements to attend next year. We cannot say enough good about the entire event!
Their agenda is exactly what we all need, to be able to address our future, equipped with the knowledge to accomplish the tasks ahead of us all. This event was well thought out to accomplish just this. The workshop sessions alone are just incredible. The Trade Show incorporated the latest innovations and technologies that we need to know about with the best of the best set up with their displays.
They even chose a perfect site for the event incorporating very little waste and green measures, with accommodation arrangements available at one of the greenest Hotels in the country: Seaport World Trade Center Boston, 200 Seaport Blvd., Boston, MA 02210. (Be sure to read about what NESEA did to help this Hotel move to this status at their link below.)
