APLD Members Get Exclusive Invite to the LA Expo

Please accept this exclusive invitation to all members of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers to attend the first annual LA Expo this March 30th at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.

Created specifically for Landscape Designers and Land Development Professionals in the western United States, the LA Expo is an offshoot of the October Landscape Expo - Long Beach (TLE/LB), which better serves the Installation and Maintenance Contractor, Head Groundskeeper, Landscape and Golf Course Superintendent and Lawn Care Professional.

"As the design segment of the industry is very different from the installation and management elements, opening a new venue will allow us to focus on targeted attendees for each conference," said George Schmok, expo producer and LASN publisher. "LA Expo will be a regional venue in which Landscape Design Professionals and those who provide goods and services to the profession can get together to exchange ideas, introduce new products and technologies, establish and renew business relationships, and talk projects."

Exhibit hall attendance is FREE to all Pre-registered attendees as is the Open Panel Discussion: Biodiversity + Sustainability: Uncovering Nature in the Urban Core, anchored by Mia Lehrer + Associates.

15 additional APLD approved seminars are available, as well as a Computer Workshop presented by the University of Georgia, Associate Professor, Ashley Calabria. Six (6) of the seminars have been LEED Certified by the GBCI.

With this exclusive invitation APLD members can purchase any seminar, workshop or seminar package at a 30% discount using this dedicated promo code LAX-LS12 if you sign up at by March 23rd.
