Conference News

An Invitation from the Conference Chairs

Hello NESEA friends!

We are thrilled to invite you to BuildingEnergy Boston 2018, March 7-9 at the Westin Boston Waterfront!

This year we are pleased to be offering the same high-quality content and networking opportunities you’ve come to expect from BuildingEnergy Boston, wrapped up in an exciting new package. A new location, updated trade show floor, and all-inclusive pricing are just some of the ways we’re working to enhance the experience for attendees.

We’ve also got a session lineup that will knock your socks off. Many thanks to all those who submitted proposals and to the hardworking Content Committee who reviewed them.

We took on the roles of Conference Co-Chairs because we believe in the power of NESEA: the power to bring together people and ideas, to learn from our successes and our failures, and to make change that matters.

In these difficult and divisive times, BuildingEnergy Boston is a place where we can come together to get real, get re-charged, and get down to business. Whether you’re an emerging professional or a seasoned veteran, we welcome and invite you to re-invigorate your practice and find your people.

March 7 is coming soon. Can we count you in?



Betsy Glynn & Andrew Webster, 2018 Conference Co-Chairs
