Everyday Magic

Welcome 2014 APGA Annual Conference session participants!

You and your colleagues' goal is to transform individual elements – a class, a tour, a plant seed – into comprehensive offerings that are meaningful to visitors, the community and beyond.  We all use a bit of “magic” in this process. Your Rocky Mountain host gardens look forward to sharing and hearing about everyday magic at the 2014 APGA conference! 

Let's bring some programming and horticulture magic to the conference sessions. Not to say that PowerPoint presentations in a hotel meeting room can’t relay magic, but consider creative and alternative delivery methods or even different venues for the 2014 conference sessions. Maybe your horticulture presentation would be more impactful in an actual garden. Perhaps your marketing session would come to life with AV enhancements. Or, maybe your arts and exhibits session could incorporate a visit to a local gallery. The Denver Host Committee has designated 'magic consultants’ to help  transform your presentation into something unique and impactful. For creative tips or more information about session planning, email us at magic@botanicgardens.org.

Below are some websites that share creative uses of PowerPoint and alternate presentation tools. Please note that only PowerPoint or PDFs can be loaded to the APGA website after the conference, however these alternatives may make your live presentation inspiring and unforgettable!
