The 2014 Annual Meeting & EXPO will take place in Denver in November.

| May 13, 2014

Washington, D.C. – It’s not too early to mark November 21-24 on your calendar. That’s when more than 5,000 landscape architecture professionals and students will gather in Denver for the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Annual Meeting and EXPO.
 
The early bird registration deadline is June 20.
 
The theme of the meeting – “Resilience” – is inherent to how landscape architects are wired, said ASLA President Mark Focht, FASLA, in his invitation to the meeting. “Landscape architects work with the land and nature, not against it. Our profession and the Society have shown resiliency through the past few difficult years. Much like Colorado’s beloved Aspen groves, which are strengthened by devastating forest fires and survive avalanches, our professional roots are interconnected and we are emerging stronger than ever.”
 
More than 130 education sessions, field sessions, workshops, and general sessions will be offered throughout the meeting, offering attendees the opportunity to earn up to 21 professional development hours under the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System
 
The EXPO – the largest trade show in the industry – will feature nearly 500 exhibitors offering thousands of new products, services, technology applications, and design solutions – all under one roof.
