Attention green business gurus, product development pros, supply chain experts and product designers and engineers: the Greener by Design conference is coming to Alexandria, VA (just across the river from Washington, D.C.). On June 12 & 13, the conference will combine opportunities to network with companies of all sizes and sectors who are integrating environmental thinking into their operations with a chance to share thoughts with leading thinkers on the greening of mainstream products and the ability to walk away with a new outlook on green product development.
TreeHugger is happy to be a media sponsor, and we'll be there, learning about the latest in green product design and picking the brains of some of the smartest, most interesting individuals in green business. One of the things we're looking forward to most on the program is what they're calling Green Gurus @ Play; speakers and panelists from the program will hold roundtable discussions with a small number of participants, essentially answering one-on-one questions in a small group setting.

Aside from TreeHugger, some big names from some big-time companies will be attending. Joel Makower of GreenBiz.com fame, will be moderating many of the panels, which will feature speakers from Nike's Considered program, Clorox's Green Works cleaners and a head honcho from Wal-Mart's sustainability team. Essentially, lots of smart people from big companies at various levels on the relative "green ladder," working to climb higher.
