Few seats remain for Sustainable Brands '07, September 26-28, NOLA.

Sep. 11 /CSRwire/ - BURLINGAME, CA - September 11, 2007- With a full two weeks to go before Sustainable Brands '07, more industry leading speakers and big brands continue to make plans daily to gather in New Orleans September 26-28 to discuss emerging best practices associated with turning environmental and social responsibility into a new driver of brand value. Few seats remain for this landmark event. Those still interested in attending are encouraged to book now by calling Sustainable Life Media at 650-344-9693, or to register online at: www.regonline.com/sustainablebrands07.

Dozens of well-known corporate brands, including AMD, Pepsi, Clorox, Dell, Kendall Jackson, HP, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Hannaford Foods, and Brown Forman (Southern Comfort, Fetzer, etc.) as well as suppliers and innovators like Standard Textile, Aqua2go, and Barista on Demand, and PR/Brand/Creative agencies and media companies like Clear Channel, Fortune, and Wired Magazine have recently signed on to join the already impressive attendee list. Amazingly, conference hosts continue to bring on additional high-profile speakers to share their knowledge as well.

"We simply can't turn away the caliber of people who have approached us at the 11th hour with an interest in sharing their learning with this gathering community," said Sustainable Life Media President and CEO KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz.

David Refkin, Director of Sustainable Development, Time, Inc., and Steve Bradfield, VP, Environmental Affairs, Shaw Carpet, are just two of the new industry leaders who have signed on to the faculty late in the game. "From what we can tell, 90% of the conference faculty plans to attend the full conference. Some will even join in the post conference tour or Habitat for Humanity Volunteer project" notes Skrzyniarz.

"With so much knowledge to tap, we're working overtime to design opportunities for dialogue and learning between participants that extend beyond conference sessions," she said. Many speakers will lead table topic discussions during hosted conference lunches, and "Birds of Feather" dinner groups are being coordinated to support continued networking in to the evening.

In addition to new panelists, two tremendous, all new sustainable design presentations have also been added at the last minute. In one, user interface/sustainability expert Terry Swack, founder of The Beam, and cleanculture.com, talks about how to develop life-cycle thinking for your brands, and points to examples of who's doing it well. In another two-part break out titled: "Desirability and Sustainability: the Opportunity for Brand and Design," design experts at IDEO share what they have learned so far about the intersection of sustainability, brand and design.
