The IFLA World Congress 2018 was held in Singapore. Now in its 55th year, it was the second time the event has been held in Singapore. The event is the largest and most significant event for landscape professionals in the world 

Held from July 18-20 at Marina Bay Sands, the 55th IFLA World Congress concluded successfully with 1,552 attendees. With Singapore playing host to the event for the second time, it once again underpinned Singapore's thought-leadership and commitment in creating liveable urban ecosystems anchored in biophilia.

The sponsor and exhibition showcase included more than 50 products and solutions, and 200+ academic/technical posters displayed, bolstered the conversations on the important contributions landscape architects are increasingly making on how cities are made more liveable.

The congress culminated in one of the biggest technical tours organised in Singapore for landscape architects. A total of 252 visitors went through a learning journey across Singapore's heartlands, mix-residential projects, public parks and other architectural marvels visiting at least 50 award-winning sites. The tours were specially curated and hosted by the congress's partners allowing participants to bring home unparalleled knowledge about the convergence of biophilia, technology and future resilience in building and landscaping projects.

The 56th IFLA World Congress will be held in Oslo, Norway, 18-20 September 2019.
