About the Conference

The Theme of the conference is - Change and Adaptability

These confronting and unprecedented times have challenged us to meet completely new demands and be even more creative in the facilities and programs we deliver. This conference will focus on how our profession has responded through learning and initiative. The 4 key themes we will explore will be:

  • Sport and Physical Activity
  • Tourism and Events
  • Parks and Gardens
  • Community & Urban Planning
This highly anticipated virtual networking opportunity enables you to join hundreds of participants from the comfort of your workplace or home for considerably less money and fewer travel restrictions! This is the ideal opportunity to re-connect and communicate with like-minded people, keep our industry alive with fresh ideas, and actively participate in your own personal development during incredibly challenging times.
