Professional Practice Networks (PPN) Live!


Network and Learn at ASLA Expo

There will be many opportunities to learn, network, and celebrate during the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO in Los Angeles this October. In addition to the 130+ education sessions, field sessions, workshops, and special events, make sure to add PPN Live to your annual meeting plans!

Through PPN Live, you will get a chance to network with colleagues from all 20 Professional Practice Networks throughout the annual meeting weekend in a central location on the EXPO floor. Make the most of your PPN experience at the annual meeting by setting your own agenda:

  • Participate in a PPN Live Stage session. PPN meetings take place on the EXPO floor throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday, and include a variety of formats: invited speakers, fast-paced PechaKucha-style presentations, speed-mentoring, networking sessions, and more. Check out the schedule below!
  • Attend a PPN exhibitor product tour. Returning this year, don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn more about our exhibitors’ services and design solutions in tours led by subject matter experts around the EXPO floor. See the tour schedule here!
  • Network with your PPN peers at the EXPO Reception featuring the PPNs on Sunday from 4:30 to 6:00 pm. It’s now free to all registered annual meeting attendees, and non-PPN members are welcome to attend.
