APLD International Landscape Design Conference Co-Locating with the 2014 International Pool I Spa I Patio Expo
May 30, 2014 - Dallas, TX
The International Pool I Spa I Patio Expo [PSP] has partnered with the Association of Professional Landscape Designers [APLD], co-locating their event, the APLD International Landscape Design Conference, with the 2014 International Pool I Spa I Patio Expo in Orlando, Florida. This partnership is sure to bring attendees of both events a unique designer landscape experience at the expo.
The Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) is an international organization to advance the profession of landscape design and to promote the recognition of landscape designers as qualified and dedicated professionals. The International Landscape Design Conference is APLD’s annual event where they provide landscape design professionals impressive and critical education and networking opportunities. At the 2013 APLD Conference, APLD partnered with Genesis 3, show endorser for the PSP expo, to present water shape design and construction education at their event. This unique partnership created a natural dynamic for the co-location event at the 2014 PSP expo in Orlando.
Taking place November 5-7, in the North Hall of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida USA, the PSP expo will offer pool/spa builders, retailers, service companies, designers and landscape architects from both residential and commercial segments, a comprehensive product preview and educational conference covering the entire backyard living marketplace.
“This strategic partnership brings a great opportunity to both groups of show attendees,” said Tracy Garcia, CEM, Director of the PSP Expo. “APLD brings a valuable perspective to the industry and we are pleased to have their event co-locating with us in 2014.”
APLD and their members will produce a one thousand square foot designer landscape pavilion at the show, a beautiful addition to this year’s expo floor. In addition, attendees of both events will be able to attend a Keynote presentation, provided by APLD, by Ray Jungles, an American landscape architect whose private garden and resort hotel landscape designs have been honored with over thirty-five design awards. APLD conference attendees will have the unique opportunity to enjoy the PSP expo’s expansive one hundred and fifty thousand square feet of backyard living exhibits on the show floor.
“APLD is pleased to partner with the PSP Expo this year. We believe this relationship will bring a new and exciting dimension to our conference and we are anxious to invite our members to attend the Expo,” says Denise Calabrese, Executive Director, APLD.
The co-location event of the 2014 PSP expo and the APLD Conference will be held November 5-7, 2014 at the Orange County Convention Center in sunny, Orlando, Florida, USA, with the educational conference occurring Nov 2-7.
