This year’s event will be hosted at the centrally located, DoubleTree Mission Valley. The sessions will be held in large open event spaces with lunch and all networking happening on a large patio outside our event space! We also wanted to make sure that this year's venue was easily accessible by transit. DoubleTree Mission Valley is right across the street from the Hazard Center Trolley stop on the MTS Green Line so getting here is a breeze! Free parking available to attendees if needed.


Buildings and neighborhoods are platforms to protect and enhance our environment, achieve economic prosperity, and ensure equity, health and well-being for all. The focus of the San Diego Green Building Conference and Expo is to showcase how the built environment can contribute to a more sustainable and equitable world. Our mission has always been to inspire, educate and collaborate within our community and we know San Diego is actively contributing to creating a more resilient and sustainable world.

The climate change is affecting us here and now; wildfires, eroding coastlines, catastrophic weather patterns and alarming rates in the rise of CO2 levels and we recognize that our built environment has a large footprint, impacting not only the surrounding environments and communities but the occupants within. As the premier institution for green building resources and education in San Diego, we see an opportunity to bring our community together to inspire real action and ensure positive impact for generations to come.


Your organization has the unique opportunity to spotlight themselves within a concentrated audience of the top green building professionals in San Diego! Sponsorship will offer several different levels with varying perks, outreach and marketing efforts. You can download and review our Sponsorship Prospectus here. Please reach out to Colleen FitzSimons [email protected] for more information.
