Victorian Country Pools Conference
In conjunction with the Rural City of Wangaratta and Sport & Recreation Victoria, ARV will be presenting the second edition of the Victorian Country Pools Conference and the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre, on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th May 2017.

Victoria has more than 279 publicly owned pools and hundreds more pools used by the public, such as swim schools, schools, universities, hotels, motels, holiday parks and theme parks.  While pools and the industry enjoy a profoundly successful connection with the Victorian community, our industry faces many challenges.  

The aim of the conference is to create a forum that takes into account

• The current key regional and industry issues
• Identify solutions and ways to do things better
• Acknowledges the wins
• Regional specific discussions
• Allow stakeholders the opportunity to meet and form relationships, while networking with their peers.
