It is very well organized, and the association really puts in the work to set exhibitors up for success.” – Lauren Osborn, Aquatics Consultant, Waters Edge Aquatic Design

“This was my first NRPA conference.  I found the time spent interacting with both suppliers and customers extremely valuable. Over the last 2.5 years so much of our lives have been spent with communication via Zoom/Teams or through electronic means — it was great to interact in person again.”  – Jeremy Linder, General Manager, Sparton Enterprises

“We have already received calls from those we met at the conference inquiring of our product. We obtained more contacts at the 2022 conference than all other conferences we have attended.... I would certainly recommend the NRPA conference to anyone whose company could benefit from the exposure the NRPA conference provides.” Jon Farrand, Grafitti Solutions
