Now that all of us are back from Los Angeles from a successful, fun, engaging, and education Greenbuild 2016, it's time we all start to reflect on this year's event before we start the push for next year's Greenbuild right here in Boston. Before we get hit with a famous (or infamous) Boston winter – and pack up our shorts – let's relive our trip to the lovely 70-something degrees, sunny LA days with some photos from Greenbuild 2016.
Some of us got in a bit early on Sunday before the event. Luckily, we arrived on another great day to check out the surrounding area.
The calm before the storm.
We're already all in for next year!
Work hard, play hard. No reason we can't enjoy a networking session at night, while enjoying the LA skyline, right?
Monday morning, bright and early, coffees in hand. It's time to start the party.

For much of the week, we held the fort down at the Boston Host Committee booth. Constantly, people walked by, asking about next year's Greenbuild in Boston, learning about our city, and more.
Everyone flocking in Wednesday morning for the event's biggest day.
Tons to see in the expo hall.
View had a virtual reality simulation – this was really cool.
Because even the Dark side cares about proper lighting.
Even something as simple as a bike rack can make a huge difference on the environment.
Time to unwind Wednesday night!
Guest speaker Sebastian Junger delivered an awesome, intense, inspiring speech, connecting tribalism to our industry and how we need to work together to survive.
Rock stars like Rick Fedrizzi deserve a big entrance.
How many people can say they saw X Ambassadors and Aloe Blacc perform at their conference?
