7th Annual Engineering Green Buildings Conference Storms Baltimore This Fall

EGB is part of HVACR WEEK 2010

The only networking and educational event dedicated to green-mechanical-systems design, technology, and applications in non-residential buildings, the Engineering Green Buildings (EGB) Conference and Expo will take place Sept. 23 and 24 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore.

EGB 2010 is part of HVACR Week 2010—a mega-event that covers the gamut of the HVACR industry under one roof, from design to installation to maintenance and service. HVACR Week 2010 merges three events—HVAC Comfortech, the EGB Conference, and the Commercial HVACR Symposium—to create a single, comprehensive industry expo. Residential and commercial HVACR contractors join design, mechanical, and consulting engineers as well as facility owners/operators to learn about the latest trends in the industry and the best business-improvement tactics.

EGB Conference educational sessions are as strong as ever. HPAC Engineering has assembled experts from across the country who are ready to share their knowledge and expertise with EGB Conference attendees. To see the seminar and speaker lineup, visit the EGB Conference Website.
