2019 exhibit hall
The APRA Conference and Expo is held annually and brings together parks, recreation, conservation and open space professionals, users and those with business interests. The conference is the premier opportunity in the state for this community to come together to communicate and experience an inspirational and education conference.
The conference includes a wide variety of educational sessions covering a broad range of issues on a local, state and national level. We will host prominent speakers, exhibit hall, informative and interactive workshops, tours, socials, golf tournament and much more.
Join our many sponsors and exhibitors in networking with the statewide parks and recreation community and maximize your visibility and message. This is the premier opportunity to display your state-of-the-art products and services, provide demonstrations, show off your projects and programs, and talk with the decision makers in your target market.
Attendees consist of parks, recreation and open space professionals, volunteers, board and commission members, government officials, managers, administrators, trails and park users, company/industry representative, athletic directors, and anyone interested in our profession. Our conference draws 500+ attendees, 80+ booths in the exhibit hall, and nearly 100 volunteers.
You are vital to keeping our conference delegates aware and informed of the cutting edge technology, products and services that keep them efficient and effective in their everyday work. Contact our Exhibit Hall Chair to secure your booth space for the largest show of its kind for parks and recreation professionals in the state of Arizona.
