The dust has settled from what was an amazing and very busy time at the 2019 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.
The weather was kind (in general) over the five days, with over 103,000 people attending the show with the LV Advisory Centre being a popular destination for the public!
We applaud all exhibitors at the show because we know and understand the effort involved and say a special congrats to PTA Landscapes for taking out the Mark Bence Construction Award for "The Loggia" in partnership with Tract Landscape Architects.
Whilst the 2019 show is in the rear-view mirror, MIFGS 2020 is already being promoted as "the best of the best" with the show celebrating its Silver Anniversary. We can't wait to be a part of it!
Without the efforts of these amazing people and businesses, the Landscaping Victoria Advisory Centre would not have been possible. Thank you to you all!!!

Interested in volunteering at MIFGS 2020? It will be a massive event, with it being the Silver Anniversary.
Once the dates for MIFGS 2020 are released, we'll let you know, but similar to previous years, we'll be asking for LVML Members to volunteer their time as Consultants to the public over the five days. We will also require LVML Members, Students and other Industry experts to assist us in Ambassadorial roles.
