The program focuses on transformative but practical, scalable, solutions-oriented exchanges through seven program tracks: Grid 2.0, Next-Gen Buildings, Smart Cities, Connected Transportation, Intelligent Supply Chains, Food & Ag Tech and Sustainable Water Systems.

VERGE participants include a diverse group of executives from buildings and facilities, fleets, real estate, IT, energy, sustainability, government, strategy and other business functions.  To view a sampling of who attended VERGE in 2014, click here.

How do I register for VERGE?

Click here to register and to view additional pricing information. Please register early – seating is limited!

I can only stay for part of the conference. Can I transfer my issued registration to someone else for the rest?

No, one registration may not be shared by multiple people.

Is there a group discount?

Yes! When 2 or more people register, a discount of 20% off is applied to all registrants on all items. Group registration to VERGE 2015 is strongly encouraged, and invitees have the option of adding team members during registration. Once you've added all team members and are ready to checkout, the discount will be automatically deducted from your total conference fees.

Are there any discounts for Government/Non-Profit/Academic/Student?

Because budgets are tight, we want to make sure all groups have a chance to attend. For government employees, students, academic, and non-profit organizations, we are offering 40% off the registration fee. To confirm eligibility and take advantage of this discount, please contact [email protected] with your organization or school info, number of attendees, and means of verifying your organization's status. Discount may not be combined with other offers.

What is the refund policy for the event?

Registrations for the event are non-refundable. However, if you register but are then unable to attend, we are happy to apply the amount you paid to a future GreenBiz event or product within one year of the date the credit is issued, or you can transfer your registration to a colleague. Please email [email protected] if you need to cancel or transfer your registration.
