This is a Conference based on sound theory but highlighting demonstrations, product displays and real information from sustainable practitioners who are building their businesses successfully.

The MELA Maintains Industry Fair

Sustainable maintenance manufacturers and suppliers will be on hand to show you what’s up and what’s new.

The Sustainable Techniques Demonstrations

Seasoned contractors and designers will put their experience to work to show you three important sustainable practices. Demos will be held to coincide with the Industry Fair. Plans are to include various companies in each demonstration showing how team members work together to create a sustainable outcome. You won’t want to miss this.

Tours

WRD Environmental worked with CCGT to make this impressive venue available to MELA for the MELA Maintains Conference. Tours of their Green Roof and the Green Tech Resource Center will happen the entire morning of the Conference. In addition, CCGT will let Conference attendees in on how can get their products featured in the Center, a valuable sustainability resource for city departments, universities, and public and private organizations.
