Official DPR Test Site at The Landscape Expo!

The Landscape Expo (TLE), a two-day regional landscape conference and trade show to be held at the Long Beach Convention Center on Wednesday, October 10th and Thursday, October 11th will host an official DPR Test Site.

Attendees can register for any of DPR’s license or certificate exams through the California Department of Pesticide Regulation website. Those interested must register in advance through DPR; note that they will not be able to accommodate walk-ins.

Book your room now before they're gone!

The Hyatt, Renaissance and Westin are all sold out due to a city wide convention in town (same dates as our show.) There is no point in waiting and trying to get a deal at the last minute because this year they'll be very hard to find!

Courtyard Marriott Long Beach hotel rates are $214 per night and we have negotiated a special rate of $5.00 for a “Grab and Go” breakfast for our attendees. (Make sure you request this at check in)

WARNING: Beware of any solicitations from travel companies, they are potentially fake.
