Brownfield sites are economic sinks for communities and can be detrimental to public health and the environment, not to mention their physical appearance. The GAO estimates that there are as many as 425,000 brownfields throughout the United States. Join us to be part of the solution at a crucial time for America.
The National Brownfields Conference is the largest training and networking event in the nation focused around economic redevelopment and sustainability. This event is designed to bring people together from a wide range of fields to learn, discuss, and take action on brownfield sites to ultimately revitalize communities and restore the environment. Now in its 15th year, this event attracts thousands of attendees and more than 200 exhibitors for two and a half days of interactive educational sessions, mobile workshops, keynote speakers, and the exclusive economic redevelopment forum.
The National Brownfields Conference is co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).
