PLANET ANNOUNCES THE DBI SYMPOSIUM, NOV. 15-17, 2012, IN DALLAS
HERNDON, Va., Sept. 5, 2012 — The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), has opened the registration for its new Design/Build/Install (DBI) Symposium which will be held at the Westin Galleria Hotel in Dallas, Nov. 15–17, 2012.
“PLANET offers so many top-quality green industry education programs,” said Barbara Stropko, chair of PLANET’s Design/Build/Installation Specialty Group, “that we really felt the need to explore and share knowledge and expertise particular to our design build community.”
This three-day symposium will feature practical how-to sessions on design and business, and will include a facility and project tour of Lambert Landscaping Co. The symposium is a great opportunity for companies looking to become more established in today’s design/build marketplace and also for those looking to stay on top of current trends.
The DBI Symposium is approved for PLANET Landscape Industry Certified recertification at 1 CEU per hour of instruction attended.
The rate for the three-day symposium is $249 for PLANET members and $349 for nonmembers. For information about PLANET membership, visit landcarenetwork.org.
