We enjoyed such an overwhelming response to Directions in Design, held at the Dural nursery in May 2017.  Our wonderful team greeted 170 eager guests on what was a lovely, sunny Autumn morning. Guests filed into our specially prepared event space, keen to absorb information and engage in industry discussion.  Richard Unsworth lifted the atmosphere further by styling the stage and spill out areas, presenting Alpine’s plants in an abundance of gorgeous pots from his Garden Life Sydney store.

Our guest speakers Rob Willis of Woodside Plants, Phillip Withers of Phillip Withers Landscape Design and our own Craig Rich engaged the audience with their presentations on horticultural trends, plant profiles and design influences.  Our guests then relished the opportunity to network with Alpine staff and their peers, strengthening connections and discussing industry matters over a delicious lunch.

“Alpine seminars are a great opportunity to give back to our customers and to the broader industry.  Our goal is that by attending our guests will have gained valuable insight into key industry topics and broadened their connections by networking with their peers” said Managing Director, Peter Knox. “This year’s event was very well attended and the feedback has been very gratifying. Thank you to the Alpine team and everyone who attended.”

Alpine has plans to continue hosting industry seminars and we look forward to welcoming many more guests to our nursery in the future.  The talks are available in the news section of our website or via these links:
