The 15th National Brownfields Conference is headed to Atlanta, Georgia on May 15 - 17, 2013. The Conference, cosponsored by U.S. EPA, is the largest and most comprehensive event in the nation that focuses on issues important to community revitalization and the assessment, cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated properties.
Brownfields 2013 will offer a diverse set of educational opportunities including, but not limited to, panel sessions, marketplace roundtables, mobile workshops, film screenings, plenary events, an exhibit hall and a redevelopment forum.
A partnership between the U.S. EPA and ICMA has developed the National Brownfields Conference into the premier international forum focused on redeveloping America’s brownfield properties and promoting environmental revitalization and economic redevelopment. In its 14-year history the conference has grown from being a relatively low-key event into being the hub of information sharing and networking for a wide variety of topics related to sustainability. Specifically, ICMA manages the conference's educational program which includes over 125 educational sessions, mobile workshops, films, the Poster Gallery and the Economic Redevelopment Forum.
The National Brownfields Conference is the largest event in the nation that focuses on environmental revitalization and economic redevelopment. Across the United States - in cities, counties, towns, and villages - innovative companies, forward-thinking government entities, and active nonprofit groups are working to bring brownfields back into productive use in ways that are good for the bottom line, the environment, and the community. These key stakeholders and decision makers are coming to Atlanta in 2013 to learn, share, network, and help keep the cleanup and redevelopment momentum moving forward.
