This years Greenbuild will bring over 900 different exhibitors to Toronto and fill two halls with booths at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. This is easily the largest event I have ever attended. Since I want to get the most out of my experience I have taken the time to research which booths I would like to visit. I only have 11 hours to myself during my 4 day trip to Toronto and this is the only time I have available to visit exhibits. I would like to have as much left over to see some sights in Toronto so it is extremely important that I develop a plan of attack for the exhibit hall.
My main interests lie in new and innovative products and technologies. I am looking to be impressed! I am also going to be visiting several companies that I have targeted for employment once I graduate. It will be a great chance to have someone from the company tell me about what they do and how they like working there.
I was able to narrow the 940 exhibitors down to a list of 89 that I would like to see. The majority of them are in the north exhibit hall so I will visit that on the first night and try to get that out of the way. The Greenbuild website has a really useful tool that allows you to select the booths you want to visit and print a map so you can take the most optimum route through the hall. I’ll be keeping the ones I’ve chosen to myself for now but watch for an update after the conference to see which ones impressed me.
