The 55th IFLA World Congress 2018 will be the largest and most significant event for landscape professionals in the world, held on July 18-21. Supported by 5 regions – Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific, it sets the stage at the ‘City in a Garden’ for professionals, government bodies and academics to be part of the in-depth discourse on trends, challenges, and business opportunities on a global scale.
Biophilic Cities, Smart Nation and Future Resilience
Held in conjunction with the Singapore Garden Festival, the IFLA World Congress 2018 is the key platform that champions landscape architecture as a major contributor to the development of attractive, liveable, equitable, and sustainable environments of the future through the themes of Biophilic City, Smart Nation, and Future Resilience.
The Congress promises an enriching experience that will feature the most inclusive exhibition showcase involving landscaping solutions, innovations, and products in the Asia Pacific region.
“Singapore is a country that has made tremendous efforts in infusing nature into the heart of all urban developments. Boasting an impressive network of trails and pathways that connects parts and green spaces, the city-state has made considerable efforts to also integrate nature into its vertical spaces. Join us for a first-hand experience in exploring the deep wonders of what the city has to offer!
Delegates can look forward to be part of our specially curated Technical Tours, where we go on to explore award-winning sites right in this garden city.” ~ IFLA World Congress 2018
