Apply now to be a sponsor or presenter at USGBC Detroit Region's inaugural sustainability forum.

USGBC Detroit Region is pleased to announce its first annual Sustainable Detroit Forum, "Showcasing our Healthy High-Performance City." The event will take place on October 25, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center at Wayne State University,

Our first forum is designed to connect and cross-fertilize the sustainability communities of Detroit. The full-day event is being organized in partnership with a number of other nonprofits with green and sustainable missions, including:

  • American Institute of Architects—Detroit Chapter
  • Sierra Club
  • Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum
  • EcoWorks / Youth Energy Squad
  • Elevate Energy
  • Michigan Interfaith Power and Light

The event offers a day of interactive learning, with morning and lunch keynotes followed by short presentations of projects brought to the event by nonprofit partners. These 10- to 15-minute, lightning-fast presentations of both completed and planned projects will form the bulk of the sessions, allowing as many people as possible to share their sustainability vision and actions.

Proposals for presentations are due August 18. Learn more about making a proposal

If you have a product or service you would like to share with the green building professionals who will be attending, sponsorships and exhibitor space is available. Sponsors will be recognized on social media, in program materials and emails and at the general sessions of the event. 

Proposals for sponsorships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about sponsorship

In addition, we are seeking acoustic musicians to play interludes between presentations and to provide ambiance for the opening plenary and during lunch. Learn more.

Detroit has many exciting sustainability initiatives, from the neighborhoods to Midtown and downtown, and this event will bring them all together for a day of sharing, learning and connecting. Join us in bringing the sustainability conversation forward in Detroit.

The Sustainable Detroit Forum will also feature an innovative Green Mall for the exhibition spaces, which will provide a vibrant, street fair atmosphere and infuse the exhibits with innovation and energy. With the incredible indoor gallery space and exterior Fountain Plaza of the McGregor Memorial Conference Center, the event will showcase a wide variety of sustainable, smart, healthy, high-performance products, technologies and services.
