NRPA Opens Registration for First Ever Hybrid Conference

Scheduled to Take Place in Nashville, Tennessee in September

The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is throwing their annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee on Sept. 21-23 and early bird registration is open now. This year, NRPA is hosting their first ever hybrid conference to better serve the industry during the pandemic.

Registration for the 2021 National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is now open for the first ever hybrid conference that will be held on Sept. 21-23 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Early bird registration is open until August 6 and is offered to members at a discounted rate as well as a virtual cost for those attending remotely. While the pandemic has changed how we live, it has also shown how important outdoor spaces are to where we live and has put even more emphasis on recreation.

"Now, it's time to invest in the park and recreation professionals who have done so much - and the NRPA Annual Conference is the opportunity to do just that," said Kristine Stratton, president and CEO of NRPA, "This year is about coming together and strengthening the bonds of the park and recreation community."

This year, NRPA is offering phased registration to ensure safe access to the 2021 Conference. Limited registration will be allotted in date ranges starting with May 10 through June 9. In-person seating is limited to 3,000 individuals to be in compliance with CDC capacity guidelines.

The conference will feature over 80 sessions, with both in-person and virtual exhibit halls, and networking opportunities. In addition to the general daily sessions, there will be 12 education tracks including Aquatics, Health and Wellness, Revenue Development, and Equity and Inclusion, just to name a few.
