2019 National Planning Conference


The Exhibit Hall is the place to discover poster displays of exciting projects undertaken by talented planners at all levels of experience. Posters are on display Saturday through Monday of the conference.

Student and professional practice posters are entered into a competition; APA will announce the winners during the Exhibit Hall Happy Hour on Monday night.

Poster Proposal Review

All proposals will be peer-reviewed to ensure that posters chosen for the NPC19 program reflect innovation and diversity in planning research, practice, education, and professional development. APA will notify everyone who submits a poster proposal of its acceptance or rejection for the NPC19 educational program during the week of February 4. It is the responsibility of the proposal submitter to notify other individuals named in the proposal (if any) of APA's proposal decision.

Poster Presenter Policies

Review the policies carefully before submitting your poster proposal and be sure to share them with any invited presenters.

  • At least one presenter with a designated role in your poster presentation must be an APA member.
  • All poster presenters must register for the conference by February 13, 2019.
  • As a professional courtesy, speakers/presenters are encouraged to speak in no more than two sessions/posters.
