National Aquatic and Recreation Infrastructure Conference

Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th July

 

With the desire for Aquatic, recreation and sports center’s to be more flexible to encourage more people to be active this conference will bring together global and Australian leading thinkers, practitioners and case studies to showcase planning, design, architecture, technology, management practices and innovative solutions that will encourage more of the community to be active through play, recreation and sport in community facilities.

 

Facilities and Places Need to Be More Flexible to Activate the Community

Community Recreation and Sports Facilities of the future will need to be designed so that they link the outside with the inside, providing integrated spaces for activities, community events, health and wellbeing, with as much emphasis on fun and ability to create excitement as well as some of the traditional facilities. The National Aquatic and Recreation Infrastructure Conference will draw on the latest design and management practices to both plan for the future of the wider community needs while also exploring how to retro-fit facilities for the future needs of the community. In addition, the conference will explore the growing global trends to invent new facilities and trails in parks and around the urban sprawl that activates the community in new ways.
