As we round out the tradeshow season, we come upon one of the last, but certainly not the least of tradeshows we always enjoy taking part in; the Parks and Recreation Ontario (PRO) Educational Forum and Tradeshow.
No two tradeshows are the same and we truly enjoy each one we have a chance to take part in, as each has something slightly different to offer and is what ultimately keeps us returning year after year. As we look forward to meeting with our American partners in the fall at the Athletic Business Conference, the PRO conference allows us to do that as well, but in our home province of Ontario.
Here in Ontario, not many other tradeshows act as such a strong leader and hub for recreational and community planning as the PRO show and while it is based in Ontario, the show attracts vendors, speakers and attendees from across both Canada and the United States.
This year’s show will be held at the Deerhurst Conference Centre located in Huntsville, Ontario in beautiful Muskoka cottage country. With the upcoming 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation, this year’s show is shaping up to be a special one with over 70 industry suppliers showcasing the very best tools and products.
Additionally, this show acts as a conduit, guiding strategic business relationships without borders through the networking component of the forum. In addition to meeting key industry players, manufacturers and innovators, we look forward to learning more about upcoming trends and approaches North American communities are using to enhance their offerings.
With sessions geared toward parks, environment and open spaces, research initiatives, programming trends as well as facility, infrastructure and design, there truly is something to do for all in attendance.
We look forward to another great show and look forward to all the familiar faces as well as any new ones.
