2019 CSLA Annual Conference & 2019 BC Land Summit

2019 Conferences & Showcase of Products

CSLA Annual Conference, Showcase of Products & AGM 
May 7-8, 2019 | Westin Bayshore Vancouver

The theme of the 2019 Conference is Awareness, Acknowledgement and Engagement – Landscape Architecture and Reconciliation.  BC is proud to host this spectacular national event for landscape architects.  Since the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) Calls to Action the national dialogue on Indigenous issues has been growing.  The 2019 CSLA Congress will explore three pillars: a) acknowledgement, b) awareness and c) engagement. Volunteers are developing the Preliminary Program and it is almost ready.  Updates will be posted to this space soon!  Following the CSLA Conference delegates are invited to stay for the 2019 BC Land Summit.

Registration for the Conference will open on January 15th, 2019!

Invitation to Sponsors and Exhibit
We welcome this opportunity to invite you to participate in the Conference as a Program Supporter or Exhibitor.  We anticipate that approximately 275 to 300 delegates, speakers, and exhibitors will gather for this premier event for landscape architects and allied design professionals in BC.

The Showcase of Products and Services from May 7-8 2019 at the Westin Bayshore Vancouver.  We are fortunate to see so many returning exhibitors. We also welcome several new companies and product lines. BCSLA/CSLA Showcase Exhibitors and Sponsors enjoy the informal atmosphere to increase their company profile and remind our design professionals about quality services, new and innovative products, and leading edge technology that can be used by landscape architects in their offices and projects.  There are only a few booths left!  Volunteers will do a site tour on January 14, 2019 to determine if we can provide additional booths.  Watch this space for updates.

BC Land Summit Society
The concept of the BC Land Summit emerged from discussions between several land use professions, which were facilitated through a professional roundtable. The mutual benefits of collaborating on a joint conference were soon apparent, and a decision to proceed was taken by a number of the participating professions.  The current members of the BC Land Summit Society include:

  • The Appraisal Institute of Canada – BC
  • The British Columbia Institute of Agrologists
  • The British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects
  • The Planning Institute of British Columbia
  • The Real Estate Institute of British Columbia

May 8-10, 2019 - Westin Bayshore Vancouver.  Click here for more information.
