As we say farewell to 2020 and look forward to 2021, I am immensely proud of the hard work and dedication our industry has shown in what has been a year like no other.
You have been integral to this and I thank you for continuing to support this vital industry in providing the foundations for our communities to be healthy and have liveable towns and cities. This year, we have all seen how even more essential this is.
We are grateful to have been supported through this challenging year by our Major National Partner Sponsors Green Life Group and Lark Industries and our National Sponsors Syngenta, Christie, Belgravia Leisure, Lawn Solutions and Otium Planning Group.
Our virtual events were a first for Parks and Leisure Australia and I am pleased that we were able to deliver these to our members. Thank you to Green Life Group for being the Principal Sponsor of the 2020 National Virtual Conference and Exclusive Event Sponsor of the 2020 National Virtual Awards of Excellence. Thank you too to Belgravia Leisure, Lark Industries and Proludic for being the Gold Partner Sponsor of the 2020 National Virtual Conference.
As we prepare to welcome 2021, I am looking forward to starting the New Year together with positivity and renewed energy. Keep an eye out in 2021 for new and exciting developments at Parks and Leisure Australia particularly the 2021 conference which, fingers crossed, will be a face-to-face event at the Sydney Olympic Park 12-15 September so please block out your diaries.
Our office will be closed from Thursday 24 December 2020 and re-open Monday 4 January 2021.
Wishing you a peaceful and safe Christmas and I look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Mark Band CEO
