  • The always popular Green Expo, with plenty of new exhibitors and an exciting new scavenger hunt, complete with an iPad2 grand prize
  • Change for Change Preview: Parking meters transformed into masterpieces by professional artists
  • Local foods so delicious that one attendee compared it to being on a cruise
  • Great green networking — you’ll learn from dynamic speakers, exciting exhibitors and sustainable SC workplaces
  • Informative breakout sessions for all levels of green businesses
  • A look at the new Chevrolet Volt and other alternative fuel vehicles up close and personal
