When you want to plug in to the nerve center of the 2014 National Planning Conference, head to the Planning Expo. The exhibit hall is a great place to meet people and take the pulse of the planning field.

Planning Expo

If you want to get to the heart of planning, head for the Planning Expo. Rub elbows with your fellow planners and find out what's happening in their part of the field. You'll find plenty of spots to grab a seat, grab a coffee, or grab a bite and swap ideas with people who share your passion for planning. Scope out the booths and see what's new from more than 100 exhibitors. And come by the APA pavilion. You're sure to find new ways of getting the most from your membership all year long.
