The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) invites all those with an interest in improving cities to experience the fusion of green and urban at the 2016 AIPH International Green City Conference and Tours.
Organised by the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) and AIPH, the event takes place in Vancouver from 14 – 18 March 2016, and gives delegates a chance to see innovations in urban green infrastructure and planning on a global scale.
Delegates from across the world will learn about the importance of incorporating green design in urban development. A line-up of international speakers will share practical examples and strategies of real green cities. The goal of the conference is to equip delegates with the tools to support their local green city efforts. During the week, they will discover why urban greening is so important, how to achieve practical and affordable solutions and then experience it in action on a day and a half of tours.
Chair of the AIPH Green City Committee, Karen Tambayong said: “Vancouver aims to become the greenest city in the world by 2020, Vancouver is setting the standard in green industry practices, making it the perfect host for our next conference. I know that delegates both from cities across North America and members of the horticulture industry around the world will be inspired to increase green landscaping to make their cities healthier and more sustainable.”
Conference Chairman and CNLA Board Member, Bill Hardy said: “We are proud to be hosting the next AIPH International Green City Conference and bringing together AIPH and ELCA to promote what greening cities can really achieve. We look forward to welcoming guests from all over the world.”
The conference will also be held in conjunction with the AIPH spring meeting, the European Landscape Contractors Association spring meeting, and the CNLA Landscape Canada Summit.
By attending the AIPH International Green City Conference, delegates will place themselves at the heart of this important discussion. There will be plenty of opportunities to network and meet with like-minded individuals.
