A new year, a new calendar of green and clean events. Mine is looking awfully busy, with new conferences and events joining old reliable ones.
This spring, three new events will be hot (and pricey) tickets. In chronological order:
There are others. This year, being even-numbered, brings back the biennial GLOBE conference (March 12-14, in Vancouver), which brings together a vast audience of corporate and NGO types from Canada, Europe, and the U.S. This year's GLOBE features a piggy-back conference Auto FutureTech Summit 2008, another premiere event, co-produced by HyrbidCars.com impresario Brad Berman.
And finally, the fourth annual Clean-Tech Investor Summit, co-produced by my colleagues and I at Clean Edge (February 6-7, in Palm Springs, Calif.). As in past years, we'll assemble 500 or so clean-tech entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and investment professionals for presentations and conversation in a solar-drenched locale. Should be good.
Keep in mind, those are just the highlights. There are many more opportunities to learn and schmooze this year. Check the calendars on GreenBiz.com and Clean Edge for more.
Just remember to offset those travel emissions.
