Our event draws a variety of participants, including park and recreation professionals, elected officials, and commission members from across the state of Arizona and our western counterparts. In 2023, we are excited to offer more sponsorship packages, new member engagement opportunities, and a larger two-day exhibit hall featuring extended hours. Connect with 2,300+ members who share a passion for the parks and recreation industry.
