Event Overview:

The National Brownfields Conference is one of the largest educational events sponsored by the U.S. EPA, attracting over 6,000 participants and featuring over 100 dynamic educational sessions, networking and business development opportunities, mobile workshops, walking tours, and volunteer activities to see redevelopment at ground level.

Brownfields 2015 is the premier conference and trade show focused on environmental revitalization and economic redevelopment.  The upcoming event is the 16th National Brownfields Training Conference, which promises to attract thousands of stakeholders to the “windy city” for three days of training, networking and business development.  Since 1995, the National Brownfields Training Conference has been the most important stop on the calendar of anyone working to create better communities through cleaning up and reusing brownfield properties.  

What is the name of the conference?

Brownfields 2015:  Sustainable Communities Start Here.  It is also referred to as the National Brownfields Training Conference.


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 16-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.


In 2015, ICMA will work in partnership with the EPA to deliver key aspects of the conference including communication and outreach to potential attendees, educational programming and special events.  ICMA will also organize a conference trade show and exhibit hall as well as a sponsorship program.

Features of the National Brownfields Conference added by ICMA include:

  • Marketplace roundtable discussions that provide more free flowing audience interaction than traditional PowerPoint driven panel sessions
  • An environmental film series
  • The Economic Redevelopment Forum (formerly the Brownfields Transaction Forum), which brings together site owners, investors, developers, end-users, and state and local economic development officials to lay the groundwork for potential revitalization deal-making.

Information regarding the past National Brownfields Conference, including sessions, presenters, keynote speakers, activites and more is available at, a site managed by ICMA.
