About this Event

NIRSA Recreation Facilities Institute attendees may choose between educational sessions focused on design/construction or management operations. In addition to the top-notch educational sessions, facility tours are included for some of the area’s top recreational facilities. The on-campus tours are designed to complement the educational sessions and there will be networking opportunities with recreational sports managers, recreational program directors, and architects from across North America.

In 2021, NIRSA is partnering with Athletic Business to produce the NIRSA Facilities Institute as an integrated part of the AB Show. In addition to the facilities tracks, the AB Show will also offer tracks for aquatics, fitness, and more. We believe this partnership will increase the quality and quantity of ed session offerings, increase exposure of the NIRSA brand with nonmembers, as well as decrease the scheduling conflicts of exhibitors and sponsors between NIRSA events and the AB show.
