The International Pool I Spa I Patio Expo has partnered with the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), which will co-locate its International Landscape Design Conference during the annual pool show in Orlando, Fla., this November.

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.

“This strategic partnership brings a great opportunity to both groups of show attendees,” said Tracy Garcia, CEM, director of IPSPE. “APLD brings a valuable perspective to the industry and we are pleased to have their event co-locating with us in 2014.”

APLD and its members will produce a 1,000 square foot designer landscape pavilion at the show. In addition, attendees of both events are invited to a keynote presentation by Ray Jungles, an American landscape architect who has received more than 35 awards for his private garden and resort hotel landscape designs.
