The seventh annual Canadian Brownfields 2006 Conference will be held at the Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto from October 26-27, 2006. This year’s event will focus on the key drivers that are making brownfields redevelopment an increasingly important part of city building and their real estate potential to neighbourhoods, communities and cities across Canada. Themes will include political and technological innovation, municipal and private sector partnerships and international experience to revitalize communities and restore urban cores. The event will also include the annual general meeting of the CBN and the CUI Brownie Awards 2006.
Right now, there is a call for papers for the Canadian Brownfields 2006 conference. If you have an interesting case study, technology, application or opinion related to brownfield redevelopment and urban renewal, please submit a proposal. The 2006 CBN conference committee is reaching out to professionals in every region and from all sectors of the brownfields industry to create a practical, powerful and informative program. Submissions should be emailed to [email protected] by March 17, 2006 and must be limited to 250 words with emphasis on how the presentation advances our understanding of brownfield redevelopment practice.
Now in their sixth year, the CUI Brownie Awards are well established as the industry standard for recognizing excellence in brownfields redevelopment. Last year, a record number of quality submissions were received for the ten award categories and they expect this year’s nominations to be equally strong. You are encouraged to nominate any project, person or organization that you think should be recognized for their achievements in brownfields redevelopment.
