PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Crossville, Inc., a domestic porcelain tile manufacturer, is partnering with the Google+ Interior Design Community to host a live socialcast in conjunction with the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. The socialcast, a Google+ Hangout ON AIR, will take place on Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 8 p.m. ET from the Garden State Tile Showroom at 2401 Walnut Street in Philadelphia and will be viewable in real time on YouTube.

Google+ community moderator and NYC lighting designer James Bedell will lead live interviews with a range of experts in the green building and design. Bedell will chat with members of the trade media, leading manufacturers and design industry professionals to get their takes on the current state and future of sustainability as it relates to the design and construction of commercial and residential structures.

"An event like this is why the Interior Design Community on Google+ was created," said Bedell. "We're bringing designers, manufacturers, members of the media and other professionals together online and in person to talk about issues that matter and share ideas that inspire."

The Google+ Interior Design Community is an open community with more than 9,750 members.
