Speakers’ Dinner



To celebrate the inaugural ALC and Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show partnership, this year’s Speakers’ Dinner takes place at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.

We are delighted to offer delegates an exclusive, private, after-hours viewing of the Designer Show Gardens as an added highlight of the evening. The professionally designed international standard display gardens are the Show’s feature and a fitting addition for our conference. Guided tours by plant experts from Warners Nurseries will bring the designs to life through their superior plant knowledge and design expertise.

So join with our speakers for this special Warners Guided Tour followed by dinner in the World Heritage Great Hall of the Royal Exhibition Building, amidst the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show’s spectacular floral displays. Don’t miss this special evening of world-class garden design, good company and conversation at one of the nation’s most beautiful historic buildings with its breathtaking dome influenced by Brunelleschi’s 15th century Florentine Duomo.
