September 23 – 26, 2020
APLD International Design Conference: “One World, One Community” - Virtual Edition
In true APLD form, we’ll visit and explore amazing gardens by remarkable designers. You can take inspiration, learn tricks of the trade, and soak up the beauty of gardens from the comfort of your home, office or your own garden. We know that one of the best things about going to conference is getting together with your friends and colleagues, so we are planning lots of opportunities for you to socialize and connect virtually. Through chat rooms, speaker Q&As, sponsor showcases and one-on-one meetings, social media interfaces and small group discussions we will come together as One World, One Community. We are also looking forward to a fabulous lineup of industry experts who will speak to topics important to our community of landscape designers.
