Nielsen goes green


The Nielsen Company announced the launch of the Green + Design Conference and Expo, a new conference and trade show focused on environmental design in the commercial, hospitality, residential and retail design industries. The inaugural Green + Design Conference and Expo, to be held October 1-2, 2007 in Atlanta, will be the design industry's most comprehensive educational and trade event focusing on integrating the principles of sustainability into project designs. The event, produced by Nielsen Business Media, will draw from its existing events and publications to create one show that fills the need for green design.

"Green + Design Conference and Expo is about combining green principles with utility, economy, and practicality, and helping our audience integrate the principles of sustainability into project designs," said Tim Fearney, Show Director, Nielsen Business Media.

The Green + Design Conference and Expo program will be produced by the editorial staff of Nielsen Business Media's Contract magazine, Hospitality Design magazine, Kitchen & Bath Business (K+BB), DDI Magazine, Multi-Housing News and Commercial Property News. The Green + Design exposition floor will feature over 15,000 square feet of exhibit space dedicated to green products used in sustainability design.
