World Urban Parks - Partner Congresses

World Urban Parks is proud to partner with national, regional and local organisations to co-host congresses. World Urban Parks has developed a full 2019 schedule. 

World Urban Parks gives preference to partnering with World Urban Parks member associations, cities and organisations. World Urban Parks will also consider partnering to add an international dimension (e.g. world status and speakers) to any other related conference, that may not include broad member attendance. This level of partnering may also be considered on an ad hoc basis and not just from the Expression of Interest (EOI) process.

Consequently, interested organisations can express an interest to host any of the following levels,

  1. Level One: Regional & Local Event: Cross branding and partnership opportunity
  2. Level Two: Partnered Conference: International Conferences with any relevant organisation
  3. Level Three: World Urban Parks Regional Congress with a national/state association, city or large organisation
  4. Level Four: World Urban Parks World Congress with a national association, major city or organisation
