Welcome to the 2020 Greenbuild Call for Proposals

Greenbuild is the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Thousands of building professionals from all over the world come together at Greenbuild for three days of outstanding educational sessions, renowned speakers, green building tours, special seminars and networking events. Greenbuild is now accepting proposals for presenters and topics for Greenbuild 2020 in San Diego.

The 2020 conference will feature educational sessions covering all aspects of sustainable design, construction and operations practices for buildings and communities, including their impact on people, the environment, and the economy both domestically and globally.

All proposals must be submitted online. You may begin the process and return to your saved proposal any time up until the deadline.

All complete proposals must be submitted and all speakers must login to complete their personal details by Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 11:59pm PST.

**Please note a change from previous years, there will be no extensions beyond this date. No late proposals will be accepted**

All proposals must be complete, comprehensive and deemed relevant and timely to the conference’s audience. The Program Working Group may shorten a presentation, increase and/or reduce the number of presenters, select alternate presenters from among those proposed and/or combine the submitted presentation with other proposed presentations, at its sole discretion. All presenters will be contacted independently to confirm their submittal.

Refer to the Submittal Guide for detailed submission instructions and please contact if you have any questions.

***Important Process Notes:***
  • The submitter cannot complete the proposal without the acceptance of participation of all proposed presenters/moderators. Each presenter and moderator will need to login individually to the submittal site to enter their personal details and confirm their participation in the proposal.
  • In an effort to increase the quality of proposals and decrease duplicate proposal submissions, the proposal submitter will be charged a non-refundable, one-time processing fee of $25 for each education session proposal submitted. This will also allow us to be most efficient with the time of over 500 volunteer proposal reviewers. 100% of the fee proceeds will be donated to the Greenbuild Legacy Project.
