The Parks and Recreation Summit is a unique way to learn from directors who do exactly what you do. And you get to do it all at no cost to you or your system.

April 10-12, 2019 Dallas, TX

You’ll Be Amazed at What You Can Accomplish in 48 hours

Over 48 hours, you’re going to meet with parks and recreation directors from all around the country. You’re going to learn what’s working for them and what’s not. And they’ll be looking for you to share the same. Beginning the moment you step off of the plane, you’re going to meet new colleagues, you’re going to make new friends and you’re going to get to know the senior people behind the products and services that make your system run optimally.

A Custom Agenda Based on Your Needs

The Parks and Recreation Summit team reviews your application to understand more about you, your system and how we can support your initiatives. Based upon your application and then a selection process that you drive, a custom agenda is developed that introduces you to the people you’re interested in meeting, and who are interested in meeting with you. You’re going to spend two days in interactive and topical meetings, meals and social functions. And as a result, you’re going to learn more in 48 hours than you ever thought was possible!

What’s The Catch?

There is none. You’re going to meet with others who do what you do and who can help you. You’re going to meet with others you can help. You’re going to meet with suppliers. And you’re going to do it in a way that meets your needs, all at no cost to you or your system.


That’s it – plain and simple.


To be eligible, you must direct, manage or be a decision-maker in a parks and recreation system serving a community of 40,000 or greater. Your title should be Director or above, or you should have a minimum of five years in the industry. You should have challenges that you’re interested in sharing, a willingness to help others and a desire to learn about products or services that can help you in the next 6 to 18 months.


See what industry leaders like you have to say about the Parks and Recreation Summit.

I’m sure you’ve heard it hundreds’ of times, but it never hurts to promote a good thing. THANK YOU for the opportunity and the experience! Seriously, very well done. I’ve not experienced an event like this before, and it was incredibly beneficial. I hope you ask me back again!
