2018 Australian Landscape Conference – 8 AIH CPD Points

March 23 - March 25


A REVAMPED CONFERENCE! 8 CPD POINTS FOR AIH MEMBERS

While our 2015 Conference was largely one of ideas, our 2018 Conference is rather more about nature-including plants, living creatures and all those interrelationships that comprise the living garden or landscape.

Our recent conferences have sought new design templates from around the world and steered away from the herbaceous borders of northern Europe, which reached such heady heights in the 1990’s. Some designers looked ahead to new trends involving great drifts of repeated grasses and perennials pioneered by nurseryman Piet Oudolf (the ‘Dutch Wave’), and others commonly known for their ‘New Perennials’ and ‘naturalistic’ plantings. They have profoundly influenced Europe, the USA and we have echoes in Australia.

Brilliant speakers

Have we ever offered such a brilliant collection of speakers? We think not, and for the first time, we have 12 presentations by key international speakers and two Australians. Since we have more international presentations, they will all be a little shorter but, we feel, they will all be a good deal punchier.

Partnering with the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show

Another major change has been the partnering of our Conference with the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show which has seen enhancements to its Show Gardens in recent years. Our visitors to Melbourne may now see the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show at their leisure, or come on an exclusive Show Gardens Tour led by Warners Nurseries on Saturday evening culminating in the Speakers’ Dinner within the Great Hall of the World Heritage Royal Exhibition Building.

The Friday Garden Tour will again be very popular and 4 of the 5 gardens are not normally open to the public – so book early!
