Southwest Park and Recreation Training Institute 



Partnership Opportunities

The Southwest Park and Recreation Training Institute is comprised of dedicated professionals from the Park and Recreation field, who have been meeting annually, for sixty one years. These dedicated professionals are looking for new ways to work more effectively and creatively. To meet these needs, these professionals attend an annual conference, beginning the first weekend in February at Sequoyah State Park, in Wagoner, Oklahoma. Vendors will be able to promote their products, knowledge, services and build relationships with the professionals who attend these events.


The Southwest Park and Recreation Conference provides educational and networking opportunities for SWPRTI members and related professionals. Conference attendance exceeds 300 professionals and provides ample opportunities for vendors to promote their products and build relationships. The 2017 conference will begin Sunday, February 5-8, 2017.

How do you benefit?

SWPRTI events cannot be held without vendor assistance. Event planners have set high standards to meet vendors’ needs in relation to promoting their products, services and networking. Event partnership packages have been developed to maximize vendor exposure with these professionals. There are varying sponsorship levels to provide options for showcasing the value and benefit of vendors’ products and services. Sponsors will be provided every opportunity to develop relationships with professionals in a fun and relaxed setting. Besides meeting professionals, event sponsors will be able to set up displays and strategically display their logo in high density areas and on event postcards and schedules.

Want to be involved?

We’ve limited the amount of sponsorship opportunities to reduce competition and give sponsors greater exposure to SWPRTI professionals. Please review the following sponsorship levels listed on the accompanying pages and let us know which one best meets your needs. The 2017 SWPRTI sponsorship committee is excited to offer you these opportunities. If you should have any questions, please contact us at your convenience. Thank you for your support!

Contact Jill Beam for additional sponsorship information.
