About Symposium and the BCRPA

The BCRPA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to building and sustaining active, healthy lifestyles and communities in our province. The Association represents and supports upwards of 6,000 professionals who collectively shape and lead the recreation, parks, physical activity, and cultural sector in BC.

What we can do for you:

By joining us as an exhibitor or sponsor, you will be given the opportunity to engage with BCRPA's members, who are responsible for $10 billion worth of infrastructure and purchasing across the province. While at Symposium, you will be able to make one-on-one connections with upwards of 400 delegates and decision-makers, who come from communities all over BC.

As an Exhibitor, we will work with you to help draw traffic to your exhibit. There will be no other programming during the key Tradeshow times. With free food, a fun atmosphere, and interaction incentives with prizes, we expect a high level of attendance at the Tradeshow. Creative displays and engagement activities are highly welcomed!

As a Sponsor, we will help your company build brand and product awareness to our membership through member communiqués, and Symposium promotional materials. You will receive preferred exhibit space assignment, and increased visibility at Symposium.
