Los Angeles, Calif., and Framingham, Mass., October 2, 2007 - One of the most innovative and ground-breaking green industry conference agendas to date was announced for the upcoming GreenXchange' Global Marketplace Conference. This landmark event represents the first ever multi-sector, multi-market environmental event covering six key sectors in the Green Global Marketplace: Non-Renewable Energy; Renewable Energy; Air, Water, and Waste; Clean Tech, IT, Transport & Infrastructure; Capitalizing Green Technology; and Climate Change Policy. The conference agenda was announced today by GreenXchange LLC, the partnership of tradeshow producer IDG World Expo and environmental think-tank VerdeXchange. The GreenXchange Global Marketplace Conference is scheduled to take place December 10-11, 2007 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

"There's simply no other global conference that offers attendees the quality and array of innovative technology and renewable energy forums that this event offers," said David Abel, Managing Partner, VerdeXchange. "Our cross-platform program agenda will include in-depth
presentations from leading entrepreneurs, financiers, manufacturers, regulators and environmental stewards. By design, it will provide attendees with an overall understanding of both present and emerging energy portfolio opportunities that are critical to buyers and vendors in today's global green marketplace. This exchange of solutions, along with the networking possibilities afforded, is what sets GreenXchange apart from other events."

During the conference, industry visionaries will provide perspective on the emerging and rapidly-evolving green technology markets. These markets represent a new wave of technologies, policies, and business models that are reinventing how businesses interact with the environment. Highlighted sessions from each track include:

Cleaner Fossil Fuels - The Realities of a Carbonless Future
Photovoltaics: Which Technologies Will Dominate
Greening the Built Environment: Energy Smart Homes and Buildings
The Greening of Aviation, Airports and Air Transport
Double Bottom-Line Investment in Energy Infrastructure
What's The U.S. Farm Bill Got To Do With Renewable Energy?

"We said from day one that this event was going to be the most comprehensive 'green exchange' of ideas and commerce in the world," said Mary Dolaher, CEO, IDG World Expo. "We're well on our way in delivering on that promise with a conference program that is not only one of the most complete and unique in the green arena, but is also attracting the top private and public decision makers in the green marketplace from around the globe."

The conference also features several plenary sessions focused on key issues in the global green marketplace including: Government as a Driver of Investment in Energy; Technology and Sustainability, Investment Risks and Opportunities in Green Technologies; Next Generation Transportation Technologies; Technologies for Mitigating Suffocating Pollution (China Case Study); and more.
