The Landscape Designer conference at Congress 2015 is scheduled to run on Jan. 5 — snow or shine — at the International Plaza Hotel.

Landscape Ontario’s Designer Sector Group is the organizing committee for this all-day event full of sessions, socializing and plenty of time for getting caught up with your peers.

The group has strived to ensure that the information delivered will help inspire those working in the landscape design sector in the coming season. The conference will run on Warm-Up Monday (pre-trade show) in conjunction with Congress.

Delegates are provided the opportunity to learn more about the latest products and technologies available for horticulture design during the breaks, at lunch time and at the closing reception with the event sponsors, Natural Landscape magazine, Unilock, Dynascape, Select Stone, Connon Nurseries NVK Holdings and Moonstruck Landscape Lighting.

The 2015 edition kicks off at 8:45 a.m., and highlights include opening keynote from Alexander Reford on Colourful, Creative and Controversial: International Gardens at the Festival; Create Harmony With Fire and Water, presented by Jennifer Gannon; Ajon Moriyama’s presentation, Looking at the World from Within. A personal journey towards a sustainable future; Customizing Customer Interaction with Andrew Wall, and the closing keynote by noteworthy author, lecturer and designer, Julie Moir Messervy, with Get Out! Designing Landscapes that Bring Everyone Outside Again.

The day will wrap up at 4 p.m. with the ever-popular networking reception. This is another opportunity for delegates to meet and mingle before the trade show.
