Two Days of Sit-Down, Face-to-Face Meetings with Pre-Screened Parks and Rec Directors

APRIL 29-May 1, 2025 | Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

It’s Not a Trade Show… Not Even Close

The Parks and Recreation Summit is your proven way to engage senior-level decision-makers from communities of 40,000 or greater. It’s not a trade show or traditional conference . . . not even close. There are no booths, no hassles and best of all — no hoping that a decision-maker walks down the aisle and stops by. The Parks and Recreation Summit is a unique experience where you’ll share two days of private meetings and social activities with commissioners and directors you’re interested in meeting, and who are interested in meeting with you.

You’ll Meet
Pre-Screened Directors Who Are Looking for Solutions

Parks and Recreation Systems Directors come to our summit because they want to make smart buying decisions. They want to hear what’s working for their peers, and what’s not. They’re looking to learn about the latest products and services in the marketplace. And most important, they want to meet the people behind those solutions. You’re going to meet with decision-makers who are pre-screened. You’ll know what they want, what they need, and just as important, what’s keeping them up at night. It’s a qualification process you won’t find anywhere else in the marketplace.

Supplier Participation Spots are Limited

To ensure that the Directors are seeing the range of products they’ve come to source within the 48-hour time frame, we limit the supplier number and product categories at our event.  This means your competition is also limited.  Our events do sell out so take this opportunity to condense six months of sales meetings into two days of highly focused meetings with the right 


A Custom Agenda of Guaranteed Meetings

You’ll walk into The Parks and Recreation Summit with a custom and unique agenda. You’ll have seen a complete profile of every delegate including the challenges they’re looking to solve in the next 6 to 18 months. They’ll have seen a description of the capabilities that you provide. Our proprietary matching system will then generate a personalized agenda that includes private boardroom presentations, one-on-one meetings, matched meals and memorable social activities with the prospects you want to meet, and who want to meet you.

You’re the Main Attraction

The content of the Summit is user-generated, meaning you’ll be seen and heard by an exceptional group of buyers. You’ll present to delegates in 20-minute small group presentations. You’ll engage them in moderated roundtable discussions. You’ll sit between them in matched meals. And you’ll engage them in one-on-one conversations that are all driven by our proprietary matching system. There’s nothing left to chance in 48-hours of dynamic engagement with a pre-screened audience.

An All-Inclusive Solution Without The Hassles

With one price, everything is included. Your resort rooms, airport transfers, meals, a/v, and even the bar tab is all covered. There are no booths, no exhibitor manual and never anyone else with whom you’ll need to provide payment. At the Summit, we want you to focus on meeting prospects, not meeting planning. And it’s all at a cost that’s similar to what you’d pay for at a national tradeshow. The experience is limited, so please call us today for more information!

Don’t take our word for it…


"The Summit gives you an opportunity to have personal conversations with vendors. You get to learn more about them personally as well as their products/company and also provide them feedback on their offerings. One of them mentioned to me that he felt treated like an equal at the Summit rather than one of hundreds in an exhibit hall."
