APLD International Design Conference

Plan to Join Us September 23 – 26, 2020

Beautiful Garden Tours

Excellent, Inspirational and Informative Speakers

Fun Networking with Friends, Industry Professionals and Sponsors

APLD is excited to move the APLD International Design Conference into a virtual space for 2020. We are working diligently to build a dynamic, interactive, and inclusive conference for you to learn, network and engage, remotely. 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 not quite ready to roll out the specifics, but as soon as we are, you’ll be the first to know!

  • So inspiring to be totally immersed in landscape design with like-minded people. Looking forward to Chicago!

    Linda Middleton, FAPLD
  • As always, the APLD Conference renewed my creativity, energy, and enthusiasm for landscape design. It’s always good to connect with and compare notes with colleagues from around the country. I always feel stronger as a designer.

  • Every time I attend an APLD conference I go home with a smile on my face. Seeing friends, meeting new people, becoming acquainted with new products, hearing excellent speakers provide us with knowledge we can use every day, and visiting many inspiring gardens. What’s not to like?

    Vanessa Gardner Nagel, FAPLD
  • This was my first APLD conference and it was fantastic. Exceeded any expectations for the garden tours and overall organization. I love meeting designers from all over the country. See you in Chicago!

    Joanna D'Asaro
  • As a Chapter President, as much as I encourage members to attend conference, I feel I can never fully convey how special of an experience it is. Until you actually attend one and enjoy all the wonderful camaraderie and the absolute bombardment of ideas to store away for future projects, you cannot really appreciate the value it will have for you. Your design practice will benefit every single time.

    Francesca Corra, APLD
  • This was my first APLD Conference, and it was such a great experience! I truly enjoyed the opportunity to meet new colleagues, and experience some fabulous gardens.
