10 Reasons Why You Should Attend The Green Festival

Recycled Art Made From Trash. San Francisco Green Festival 2009

Tired of attending the same old boring business conferences year after year?  Then you won’t want to miss the annual Green Festival coming to a city near you. I have the privilege of speaking at the upcoming San Francisco Green Festival on November 6th and 7th during the Green Business Conference. I will be sharing the stage with Joey Shepp, founder of Earthsite, a new media agency where we will be presenting on social media and online marketing plans.

If you want fun, edutainment, great food, and excellent networking, then check out my top 10 reasons why you won’t want to miss this leading-edge event that sets the standards for Green Conferences all over the world.

1. This is a kid-friendly event…

sponsored by Annie’s Kid Zone. So bring the whole family and learn together.

2. It’s FREE…

because I am giving away 5 tickets to the San Francisco venue to the first 5 people who contact me at brendah at hware dot com. Otherwise the price of entry is cheap because the organizers believe that everyone should have access to this very cool event.

3. The parties are insanely FUN!!!!

I attend my fair share of pre and post-party conferences throughout the year, but no one knows how to throw a party like the folks at the Green Festival. The music and dancing are what make this event so exciting, so put on your dancing shoes and get ready to bust a move.

4. The eco-fashion show

is reason enough to attend. Come see models dressed in wedding themes, to haute couture and little children dressed in the cutest clothes all made with eco-friendly materials by green companies who pay their workers a living wage.

5. The cooking demonstrations…

featuring Planet Cafe will wow your palette throughout the two-day event.  Samples will be served after each cooking demonstration.  Be sure to check out the talks on fair trade coffee and chocolate too.

6. There are 300 exhibitors…

to choose from to do your shopping. You will be dazzled and impressed by companies like Couture Cottons who make organic cotton lingerie. There is no pretending to be “green” here.

7. There are 125 visionary speakers

leading the conversation on sustainability, green business, social justice, and a world that works for all.

8. The Organic gardening and urban farming

pavilion is a great place to get tips on growing your own veggies.

9.  When it’s time for a break,

head over to the  Organic beer and wine garden to relax and meet other attendees.  Did I mention the fantastic networking that takes place at the Green Festival?

10. I’d love to meet you!

Nothing has radically changed my life more in recent years than social media.  I have met some of the most interesting people online, which I then later had the delightful opportunity to meet in person at a conference or seminar. For me, business has always been about building and cultivating relationships. Please come introduce yourself to me at the Business Seminars Pavilion where I will be speaking at 3:00 on Saturday November 6th. I’d love to meet you!
