The EXPO is the hub of activity during the conference. This is the place to network with colleagues in your professional practice, meet-up with fellow alumni, grab a cup of coffee and earn professional development hours.

EXPO Schedule:

Design Day was developed to highlight the products, subject matter expertise, and sophisticated practices of our exhibiting partners. Knowing the importance of education and the growth of professional skills to landscape architects, Design Day aims to allow you to experience products and services that can support your projects and tap into the experience and knowledge of our industry partners.

Bid on more than 100 sketches, paintings, photographs, and other items created by award-winning landscape architects, artists, photographers, and allied professionals. As in the past three years, the auction will also be presented online so people can bid both on their mobile devices and in person at the ASLA EXPO. The works of art will be available to view online approximately two weeks before the Conference on Landscape Architecture. Proceeds benefit the TCLF’s Pioneer of American Landscape Design® initiative.
