Parks and Leisure Australia's 19th National Conference will be returning to Sydney from 25th to 28th October.

Introducing the event, a joint statement from Parks and Leisure Australia (PLA) Conference Chair Andrew Robinson and Chief Executive Mark Band explains “as one of the most forward thinking, green and connected cities, Sydney will host the 19th PLA National Conference ... and it is our great pleasure to invite you to ‘Inspire and create the future together’.”

The pair add that “the event attracts key decision makers working in policy, planning and provision of assets, services, facilities and programs.”
