IMPORTANT UPDATE on 2012 Buffalo Niagara Green Expo

We on the BNGE steering committee need to make you aware of some important updates regarding this year’s event. After much consideration and reflection, we have decided to postpone the 2012 Buffalo Niagara Green Expo indefinitely. After three successful years promoting the local green/sustainable community and bringing green organizations together, we have decided that our mission may be best served by modifying our future strategy.

Part of our new approach will include presenting multiple smaller events, geared toward building and providing knowledge and further broadening alliances among green organizations and individuals such as yourself. We believe that with these smaller events, we will be able to have even more of an impact on cultivating the green economy and sustainable business community in WNY; providing richer environments to spark collaboration and synergies both between businesses and consumers.

We hope that you understand and will move forward with us in what we feel is an integral decision to build upon the experience and momentum created by three successful years putting on the Green Expo, and taking our mission as facilitators in the local green/sustainability community to the next level.

Please be aware that if you have already paid for a registration to this year’s annual event, your exhibitor fees will be refunded as soon as possible. Also, please keep an eye open for further information coming your way regarding our upcoming “green learning/networking events,” which we plan to present bi-monthly, beginning in the next few months.

Again, thank you for your interest in the Buffalo Niagara Green Expo. We look forward to beginning this new chapter in our organization with you, where we can better serve the green companies, non-profits and educational institutions that all contribute to a vibrant and growing green economy in our region.

Please don’t hesitate to contact any one of us with questions and/or input.
