Greenbuild 2009 met at the corner of green and mainstream in the heart of the American southwest

November 20, 2009

Eight Austrian companies showed a strong presence at the largest exposition in the greenbuilding industry in Phoenix 

Greenbuild 2009 was hosted in Phoenix, Arizona, the fifth largest city in the country. Austrian trade show participations have become a regular feature at environmental and greenbuilding events in the US. This is the second year that the Austrian Trade Commission in Chicago has had an Austrian information booth at the Greenbuild show featuring products and services of eight leading Austrian companies in this industry. Austrian companies in the fields of sustainable building, renewable energy and modern methods of construction have a strong expertise. The products by Austrian manfucturers introduced at the Greenbuild event ranged from windows and solar panel manufacturers to glass fiber concrete façade panels and cross-laminated timber systems. The Grander company from Jochberg in Tyrol occupied a booth with their US/Canadian partner, Water Revitalisation Ltd., next to the Austrian information booth.

The Austrian information booth drew additional attention to the Austrian greenbuilding industry by introducing visitors to passive house technology as well as promoting the World Sustainable Energy Days to be held in Wels from March 3 – 5, 2010.

Despite challenging economic times, this year’s Greenbuild was a positive experience for the Austrian participants. The high quality of buyers and decision makers contributed to a successful trade show.

The Greenbuild event is held annually in different cities throughout the US and is indispensible for anyone looking for the latest trends and technologies in the greenbuilding sector. Next year’s show will be held from November 16 – 18, 2010 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The Austrian Trade Commission in Chicago will once again organize an Austrian booth for Austrian companies.
