Why attend?

"The NSW PLA Conference is one of the most useful and productive conferences available to sport and recreation professionals working in the local government sector. The opportunity to learn from industry leaders and network with representatives from other councils is invaluable. Make this conference high on your priority list!"
Suellen Bordignon
Coffs Harbour City Council

This is your opportunity to hear from a collection of industry presenters about current trends and issues across both Conference streams of Places & Spaces and Events, Programs & Services, with keynote speakers including Jane Flemming OAM and Zack Bryers, 2018 ACT Young Australian of the Year.

The Conference will also incorporate four technical tours including a tour of the Arboretum, a planning tour of the CBD Upgrade, Queanbeyan River, Queen Elizabeth Park II and Googoong, a tour of the local Queanbeyan Indoor Sports Centre Development together with a visit to the Australian Institute of Sport, and a playspace and recreation tour.

Capping off a very busy program is the inclusion of the 2019 NSW/ACT Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner.

Last year 99% of attendees rated the NSW/ACT Conference as being very good or excellent. Attendees came from Sydney metropolitan LGA's, rural NSW/ACT LGA's, peak sport bodies and industry specialists.

If you want to hear about innovation in design and delivery and learn from case study examples then this is the conference for you.
