What Our Exhibitors Say
The Better Living Show is well organized, well promoted, and very well attended. I have done several Green Festivals, and while those are good events, this one was better in many ways...the Better Living Show has more hands-on displays, the set-up is better for speakers and the gardens and kids sections were more impressive.
Brad Nahill, Director & Co-Founder, SEE Turtles
What a GREAT show! Excellent and extensive upfront marketing ensured a tremendous turnout. The socio/economic demographic of the crowd was perfect for our Energy Saving Structural Insulated Panels. I was proud to walk up and down the aisles and peruse all the other products offered at the show. It was thrilling to see how warmly the public is embracing the "Green" Concept. But what else would you expect? Portland is the best place on earth!
Laura Johnson, Panel Source, inc.
The best 3-day show ever! I've never seen so many people (public) come to a show. They came to find out information, exchange ideas and to actively find business who believe in earth friendly sustainable practices. It was exciting to see so many people willing to make "a step forward" in earth friendly practices.

The City of Portland appreciated the opportunity to participate in the first annual Better Living Show and to highlight the many ways the City and its residents are advancing sustainability in their everyday lives. With Energy Trust of Oregon as the presenting sponsor and by making the Show free for attendees, the Show is helping to spread the sustainability message to new audiences throughout the region.
