Overview

In 1996, a cross-section of stakeholders came together in Pittsburgh for the very first federally co-sponsored National Brownfields Training Conference. Now more than two decades later, Brownfields 2017 is coming back to the city where the cleanup and redevelopment movement started.

Cosponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the National Brownfields Training Conference will take place December 5-7, 2017, with pre-conference workshops on December 4th, in Pittsburgh, PA at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Offered every two years, the conference is the largest gathering of stakeholders focused on cleaning up and reusing formerly utilized commercial and industrial properties.

The heart of Brownfields 2017 is a dynamic educational program of speakers, discussions, mobile workshops, films and other learning formats that are calibrated to provide you with case study examples, program updates, and useful strategies for meeting your brownfield challenges head on. Featuring dozens of educational sessions and mobile workshops including many showcasing the Steel City and the redevelopment in the surrounding region, the exceptional training offered by the conference has something for both beginners and seasoned professionals.
