Brownfields '99
Alliances for 21st Century Livability
Environmental Challenges and Solutions
December 6-8, 1999


This year’s conference will showcase new approaches that will make it a
stronger and more meaningful experience than ever! For the year that
will lead us into the next century, EPA and its co-sponsors have been
listening to your comments about the format, the sessions, and the
speakers. We are committed to making the event live up to its title:
Brownfields ‘99 — Alliances for 21st Century Livability — Environmental
Challenges and Solutions!

Brownfields ‘99 will continue to provide fascinating discussions,
opportunities for critical networking, and a forum that will help
beginners to veterans make the deals that will change the face of
America. Participation has grown from 500 attendees in Pittsburgh, PA in
1996, to over 2,000 attendees at Brownfields ‘98 in Los Angeles, CA. Not
only has our size increased, our program’s content has grown as well.

Conference Sessions

Panels and Sessions
Panels at Brownfields ‘99 will be organized around four basic themes:

* Assessment and cleanup strategies that serve as foundations for your
successful brownfields reuse;
* Financing mechanisms and tools to help fuel your brownfields
* New and emerging legal and policy issues; and
* Redevelopment experiences and lessons learned on the road to reuse.

NEW! “Levels” Featuring Restructured Panels and Creative Formats
This year, our sessions will be divided into three knowledge and
experience levels. Sessions offered at an introductory level,
Brownfields 101, provide an understanding of the basics of brownfields.
At intermediate level sessions, Brownfields 201 targets those already
moving forward. Sessions in Brownfields 301 are designed for those who
have lived it, learned it, and redeveloped it, but want to keep up with
the latest innovations in the field.

In addition, Brownfields ‘99 will feature fewer panel sessions than past
conferences, with new and more interactive formats. Key sessions will be
repeated with new speakers to give attendees an opportunity to visit the
most popular presentations. Panels will reflect renewed focus on
problem-solving, rather than the strict sharing of case studies.
Government, private, and non-profit leaders, including community
activists, representatives of health agencies, and international
practitioners, will be integrated into the presentations.

NEW! Networking Forums and a “Marketplace of Ideas”
Throughout the conference, networking sessions will be held in and
around the exhibit hall, allowing attendees to meet and mingle with
government officials and leaders in various fields of brownfields
redevelopment. Daily “marketplace of ideas” sessions will allow
participants to discuss specific topics in a small-group, interactive
setting. “Marketplace” discussions may pick up on issues raised in panel
sessions or explore new areas.
