Reach Your Target Audience!

Why Attend:

Parks Professional Pathways is BC’s exclusive conference for regional and municipal parks professionals. Employees of local governments and professionals from the private sector look to Parks Professional Pathways as their sole professional development opportunity of the year, and the place to keep abreast of the latest products and cutting-edge trends. 

You will have access to decision-makers at the municipal level from communities throughout the province, and the opportunity to profile your brand to over 300 parks professionals and their networks.

Virtual conferencing allows us to extend our reach to more remote areas of the province. Now, more than ever before, our targeted programming for Arborists (ISA), Turf (WCTA), Horticulture, Parks Planning (PIBC), and Supervisory & Leadership ensures that you will reach your target audience.
