Expo – Pop-Up Design Challenge (1.0 ceu)
1 CEU. Putting your creative thinking skills to the test! In this activity-based CEU opportunity, teams of up to 4 attendees race the clock to complete the Pop-Up Design Challenge. The winning team is rewarded with a Grand Prize, but everyone who participates wins a CEU! Sign up here or in the Vendor Hall. All team members must check in at the Design Challenge space 5 minutes before their time-slot to prevent forfeiting their turn.
Challenge Statement: Develop design solution to connect community spaces while reducing parking congestion in neighborhood-commercial area and how to present and engage the local community. In one of the up-and-coming neighborhoods of the city, there’s a small commercial strip that houses a new brewery and a few retail shops. Across the street from the commercial strip is a vacant lot, and 0.25 miles further is a newly renovated mill with apartments. There are no restaurants within 3 blocks. The commercial strip has become quite popular, and at peak times runs out of parking and seating. The business owners want to acquire the lot and expand their business by encouraging patrons to stay, gather, and cross-pollinate. However, it sits on the other side of a 4 lane thoroughfare, with no sidewalks or traffic signals. They also want to be good neighbors to the residents around them and stewards of the environment. The owners want a plan for how this space can be activated and benefit their community. They want a solution for connecting the spaces, reducing the parking congestion, and how to present this design to their community as a starting point for engagement and discussion.
Expo – Vendor Exploration: design is in the details (1.0 ceu)
1 CEU. Grab this chance to explore new techniques and fascinating details in the vendor expo. Attendees must put on their walking shoes to find the six designated Expo vendors who have information about new and exciting advancements in the industry.

This self-guided tour can be done anytime the expo floor is open and does not need to be completed at the same time it is started. Turn in your completed worksheet at the registration table by the close of the Expo for credit.
Participants will walk on a guided tour of the Expo floor and speak with six specific exhibitors for a minimum of ten minutes each. The tour of the Expo will include the exhibiting vendors: Anova, USA Shade & Fabric Structures, Tif Tuf Bermuda Grass, Rain Bird, Bartlett Trees, & Southern Living Plants.
