Coming Together in 2022 for the WRPA Conference & Tradeshow

Thank You for Joining Us In-Person at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA

The WRPA Annual Conference is the premier annual event of the Washington parks and recreation community. In April 2022, we welcomed more than 400 parks and recreation professionals, sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers. We had a great time celebrating together in person for our 75th annual event from April 13–15, 2022 in Bellevue, WA.

The WRPA Conference Committee worked hard to build a schedule with two extraordinary keynotes, multiple socials/networking opportunities—including an annual awards banquet—as well as 30 educational sessions. This event also included an amazing exhibit hall showcasing the latest local products and services.

Check out a few details about this year's event:

Planning Through a Pandemic

At this time, WRPA's 2022 Conference & Tradeshow is planning to be an in-person event. We want you to know that your safety, and the safety of all attendees, remains our top priority. While the 2022 Conference & Tradeshow will not be canceled, it may become necessary at some point for the format to change (online/virtual). We appreciate your understanding and willingness to be flexible while we work within the limitations set by our obligations and the current pandemic. Thank you again for your support and thank you for your patience during this complex process.
