Ohio-based Tremco Global Sealants corporation made it possible for GreenTown to have a presence at last week's World of Concrete convention in Las Vegas. They generously paid for Daniel Wallach's travel and expenses, giving us an opportunity to tell Greensburg's story to an international audience of corporations in the building industry. Tremco made space available in their booth daily for Wallach to show a PowerPoint presentation and answer questions about the Green Initiative. He reports that there was a great deal of interest shown, and that many people were familiar with our green rebuilding efforts. Several solid leads were made by Wallach and GreenTown's fundraising associate, Lesa Sanford. Sanford has over 20 years of experience in working such trade shows, and is a natural at making connections with vendors.
The World of Concrete is a huge annual gathering, which this year featured 1,700 vendor booths. Tremco is a worldwide supplier of sealant, weatherproofing, residential waterproofing, and passive fire control solutions for residential and industrial applications. They have been very supportive of GreenTown and Greensburg. Three of their representatives attended December's groundbreaking for our first Eco-Home.
