The 2018 Greener Facilities Conference & Expo will have a greater focus on municipal and NGO owned facilities such as recreational multiplexes, ice/curling rinks, swimming pools, outdoor park facilities, community halls and agricultural centers, etc. The Conference and Expo will educate Alberta-based facility managers and municipal staff on new technologies and innovations, share best practices in the sector, as well as link programs to assist with retrofits and energy efficiencies.
