If you have ever wondered where the green building agenda fits into the "smart city" movement, this day is a must. At the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Los Angeles in October, the International Summit will focus on global trends in smart city planning and development.

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 4 for moderated panels and case study presentations where you will learn directly from leading international city planners, smart city innovators, and building professionals who are engaged and collaborating on efforts to break new ground in the smart city arena.
