Hanley Wood Exhibitions, the owner and producer of International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo (PSP), entered a co-location agreement with the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD).
APLD owns and produces its Landscape Design Conference. Both events take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., from Nov. 5-7.
“This strategic partnership brings a great opportunity to both groups of show attendees,” said Tracy Garcia, CEM, director, PSP Expo. “APLD brings a valuable perspective to the industry, and we are pleased to have their event co-locating with us in 2014.”
An international organization advancing the profession of landscape design, APLD also promotes the recognition of landscape designers as qualified and dedicated professionals. The International Landscape Design Conference is APLD’s annual event where it provides landscape design professionals education and networking opportunities.
“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,” said Denise Calabrese, executive director, APLD.
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.
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.
Registration for both events will open this June.
