2018 BCSLA SHOWCASE OF PRODUCTS & SERVICES - Exhibitor Booth and Sponsor Information Kit

The Showcase is almost full - book now!  Raise your company profile and support a conference program!



It's Back!

Delegates are invited to visit all of the booths to see the latest products and services and to thank our supporters. Volunteers have organized a contest that is intended to encourage delegates to visit the exhibit booths through the use of a fun event. The conference postcard has been printed on a nine-piece cardboard puzzle. We will remove approx. 90% of the one piece and then circulate equal numbers of the randomly selected package of the pieces to each exhibitor. No one would know where the magic pieces would be making this completely random. Delegates who collect all nine pieces to form the puzzle would earn prizes.

Thank You & Giving Back

The BC Society of Landscape Architects is pleased to recognize the contributions of the many participating presenters at the 2018 BCSLA Conference while giving back to the community. In lieu of traditional presenter gifts, we will make a donation on their collective behalf to a non-profit organization that reflects the values of the BCSLA and our Members.   This year we are pleased to report that the Stanley Park Ecology Society has been selected by the BCSLA Conference Program team.

The Stanley Park Ecology Society promotes awareness of and respect for the natural world and plays a leadership role in the stewardship of Stanley Park through collaborative initiatives in education, research and conservation.
