Washington, D.C. -- The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Informa Exhibitions announced that seven-time Grammy Award winner and blues legend Buddy Guy will perform at the 2018 Greenbuild Celebration, on Thursday, November 15, at The Field Museum in Chicago.

“Buddy Guy is a Chicago icon, and the epitome of Southern blues; we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him join us this year at the celebration,” said Lindsay Roberts, group director, Informa Exhibitions. “We’re certain his talent and charisma on stage will connect with our audience and accompany the cheerful atmosphere of the evening. We couldn’t have found a more perfect venue, too, than the 125- year old historic LEED Silver Field Museum.”

The 2018 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is scheduled for November 14-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill. Tickets to the Greenbuild Celebration, which is sponsored by Kohler, are included in the purchase price of a four-day conference pass, three-day conference pass, Thursday day pass, or can be purchased separately by members of the sustainable building community.

Additional offerings include summits, workshops, tours, and special events. Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is the face-to-face experience for sustainability in the built environment. It’s for professionals across multiple disciplines who depend on thoughtful and ethical solutions which promote wellness and resiliency in construction and urban development. Sustainability is the foundation of Greenbuild. Greenbuild is the only event genuinely dedicated to sustainability in the built environment, from the sessions we present to the products on the show floor to the way the event is produced. At the 2017 event, Greenbuild achieved a record-breaking 90.5% waste diversion rate.
