Explore hundreds of new products, services, technology applications, and design solutions— all under one roof! The ASLA EXPO is the largest trade show for landscape architecture professionals and the best-attended event of the annual meeting. For your enjoyment, a number of popular activities will be located in the EXPO:
Need a little boost? Enjoy complimentary coffee in the EXPO each morning from 9:00 – 11:00 AM. Why not pick up a cup for an exhibitor too? Stop by their booth and introduce yourself. It’s a great way to network and learn about all the new products on the EXPO floor. Sponsored by DuMor.
Network with colleagues from 20 Professional Practice Networks in ASLA’s PPN Live! Want to make the most of your PPN experience at the annual meeting? Set your own PPN agenda! Participate in a PPN Live session, network with your PPN peers and explore exhibitors in a PPN EXPO tour designed for your PPN, and make new connections within your practice area of landscape architecture. Non-PPN members are welcome to attend.
PPN EXPO Tours will take place on Saturday and Sunday during EXPO hours and will provide one professional development hour (PDH) for each tour. The tours will allow attendees to network with Professional Practice Network (PPN) peers and product exhibitors, and learn about new and improved services and how these improvements can assist in creating a successful design project.
Held during Saturday’s EXPO reception, the Alumni Tailgate will bring school spirit to the exhibit hall floor. Come network with ASLA exhibitors and catch up with alumni and students from your alma mater while enjoying great food and drinks! Prizes will be awarded for both school spirit/ decorated space and best overall designed space, each to be awarded with first place, 15 complimentary student registrations to the 2019 annual meeting in San Diego; 10 for second place; and 5 complimentary student registrations for third place. Complimentary beverage tickets awarded to exhibitors that show off their school pride! All full annual meeting registrants receive one complimentary beverage ticket for this event. Pick up your ticket with your complimentary meeting bag at ASLA Registration.

SCANTrivia™ is an interactive game you can play during the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO with your own smartphone. Get ready for fierce competition and big prizes!

Stellar résumés and portfolios are vital for making the first impression to employers. The ASLA Emerging Professionals Committee will be on site to review student and emerging professionals’ résumés and portfolios.
In 2008, ASLA introduced the Legacy Project as a gift to the host city of the Annual Meeting and EXPO. The host chapter teams up with the local ACE Mentor affiliate to design a project that will benefit the landscape and people of the host city. This year, it returns to the city that started the program 10 years ago: Philadelphia! Many EXPO exhibitors generously donate products and plants each year for the project, allowing ASLA to give back to the city that hosts the meeting. Project and donation list TBA!
