“The calibre of this year’s speakers and exhibitors is outstanding and cements the national Parks and Leisure Australia Conference and Exhibition as a premier event and meeting point of Australia’s parks, leisure, health and sporting industry thought leaders and industry innovators.”
“With so many sector leaders under one roof, this event will highlight the ways in which our sector is linking parks, open spaces and facilities to our health, well-being and sporting performance and will address the fundamental need for good policy, planning and provision of parks, open spaces and facilities.”
