Green Cities, the largest green building conference in Asia-Pacific,
comes to Sydney in 2012 to showcase the brightest green
building professionals, experts and manufacturers for three
days of green building conversation, innovation and collaboration.

In 2011, Green Cities has gotten its mojo back, so in 2012 the conference
will continue to challenge the green building status quo and push
the industry towards better environmental, social and economic outcomes.

population and regional markets such as China, Russia and Japan, Songdo
IBD will position South Korea as the commercial epicenter of Northeast Asia.
