Vertegy Tapped to Host Webinar at Second Annual Virtual Green Expo

Vertegy's FREE webinar on Aug. 4 will focus on building LEED K-12 schools

St. Louis-based Vertegy was recently tapped to participate in the second annual Virtual Green Expo, hosted by Environmental Design + Construction and Sustainable Facility magazines. On Aug. 4, as part of the Expo, Vertegy's General Manager Thomas Taylor and Environmental Specialist Christy Cunningham-Saylor will present a FREE webinar at 9:45 a.m. CST entitled, "Building a LEED K-12 School." The webinar will discuss the LEED for Schools rating system and the specific strategies for designing and constructing green schools. Roofing Contractor, Walls & Ceilings and PMEngineer magazines are co-media partners for this FREE state-of-the-art virtual expo, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 4 and will focus on Green Schools, one of the largest construction sectors in the United States.


The Virtual Green Expo is an online event aimed at industry professionals who may be limited by time and budget constraints, but who are also interested in earning continuing education credits, hearing from experts in the field, downloading whitepapers, networking with peers, and visiting suppliers. The show and its educational sessions also provide participants with the opportunity to interact, one-on-one, with others who are focused on green schools.

Besides Vertegy's webinar, the expo's schedule includes exhibitors, other experts and webinar topics on high-performance K-12 and college/university buildings and educational facilities that will address:

Specifying interior, exterior and mechanical systems (plumbing, heating, roofing and wall systems)

Creating a high-performance, healthy learning environment

Financing, operating, maintaining and cleaning a green school

The day will start with a keynote presentation from expert John Shea, CEO, New York City Department of Education, Division of School Facilities, continuing with four back-to-back webinars, each followed by a typed group chat session with presenters.

About the Virtual Green Expo
August 4, 2011 will be the second year for this virtual event concept developed by Environmental Design + Construction and Sustainable Facility magazines. Leveraging the power of our virtual platform with the unique and vital information from our community of experts – the Virtual Green Expo is designed to give attendees the information they need – FAST and FREE. Suppliers will have a unique opportunity to share their new products, videos, expertise and nearly anything else they would like to share with attendees. Then, through features like group chat, private chat, show email and virtual business card exchanges, suppliers and attendees connect during and after the show.

What is a Virtual Event?
A virtual event is a gathering of people sharing a common environment online to create an interactive experience similar to a conventional trade show. Attendees can interact with booth personnel, network with peers, watch video product demonstrations and webinars, and download product catalogs or other technical documents into their virtual trade show bag, just as you would at a conventional trade show. Since virtual trade shows can be attended by the entire team from a single computer screen, cost of travel, lodging and time away from the office issues are essentially eliminated.
