Learning about advances in playground and recreational surfacing is vital to keeping No Fault Sport Group at the forefront of the industry.
That's why we're excited about the industry conferences we attend each year. This year, we are most excited about these three upcoming events:
- The California Parks and Recreation Parks Society (CPRS) Conference and Expo, Feb. 28 – March 3 in Sacramento, California
- The Parks and Recreation Summit, April 10-12 in St. Augustine, Florida
- The NRPA Annual Conference, Sept. 26-28 in New Orleans, Louisiana
The CPRS Conference and Expo is a California state show, people come from all over the United States to attend and participate. Vendors, including No Fault, will arrive in Sacramento, California as the Sacramento Convention Center will be transformed into a parks and recreation mecca.
City and state parks and recreation departments from neighboring states send their employees to learn the newest methods and techniques to improving the country’s parks and greenspaces! We’re thrilled to be taking part in this and can’t wait to meet with everyone attending. You can find us at Booth No. 831.
The Parks and Recreation Summit isn't a typical trade show. For one thing, there are no booths. It includes two days of one-on-one roundtable meetings, breakout sessions, matched meals and memorable social activities between us and the potential clients we serve, most of them being the commissioners and directors of parks departments all over the nation.
The Summit is limited to just 40 vendors, with only a few vendors per product category attending, so No Fault is honored to be among the select few who make it. An event this size gives us the opportunity to make personal connections with our peers and our potential customers.
To be eligible for the Parks and Recreation Summit, parks directors or managers must be responsible for a system with a population of 40,000 or higher. Check out the video below showing a few directors and managers discussing their perspective attending past events:
The Summit is a unique opportunity for industry professionals to share ideas and get to know one another, and we're looking forward to meeting people and talking about our signature products: No Fault Safety Surface (poured-in-place rubber surface), No Fault Bonded Rubber Mulch & Loose-Fill Rubber Mulch, No Fault Safety Tiles, No Fault Rubber Turf, Water Play Surfacing and more. This event is hosted by Gallo Business Media, a business-to-business event organizer.
Another annual conference No Fault Sport Group attends each year is The National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) conference. The three-day event brings together more than 7,000 park and recreation professionals and citizen advocates for networking opportunities, educational sessions and a showcase for the products and services of nearly 400 exhibitors. The 2017 NRPA conference will take place in New Orleans Sept. 26-28 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. No Fault Sport Group will be there exhibiting our signature products again. This includes poured-in-place rubber surface, rubber tiles, bonded and loose-fill rubber mulch, Rubber Turf and No Fault Play Safe 50 Turf System. Our sales staff will be available to answer questions and hand out information about our products. Please stop by our booth (No. 2748) and talk to our sales representatives.
