Did You Attend the NRPA Congress in Houston, TX This Year?

swingsetLast month was the National Recreation and Park Association’s (NRPA) Congress and Exposition, an annual event for the park and recreation industry. Thousands of attendees took part in the event with the goal of networking, learning about new trends, and showcasing their industrial solutions.

More than 400 exhibitors were present at the Congress, including Urethane Systems Plus. We exhibited at booth #953.

The event included numerous educational sessions, ranging from accreditation facts, to playgrounds and facilities that accommodate special needs, and general workforce management. A full list of the event sessions is available online. There wass truly something for everyone in the recreation and park industry at this annual event.

The expo also included many helpful workshops for professional development. Topics included finance, customer service, fundraising, conservation, and more. There were even Off-Site Institutes (OSI) for a more hands-on experience.

For those unable to make it to the conference in person, NRPA created the NRPA’s Virtual Congress Live! Online participants had access to educational sessions, presentations, and the ability to earn continuing education credits. More information is available here.

And in case you missed the conference this year, you’ll have ample time to make it up in upcoming events. Next year’s Congress is taking place in Charlotte, NC, from October 14th to 16th.
