The Alberta Association of Recreation Facility Personnel (AARFP), the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA) and the Alberta Ministry of Economic Development and Trade (EDT) are inviting you to attend a seminar on Wednesday June 5th in Edmonton.

Who should attend

Alberta’s small to medium-sized to large enterprises, municipalities and professional associations who are interested in learning more about providing recreation and sports supplies and services in the China/Asian market and more specifically the People’s Republic of China in advance of the 2022 Winter Olympics in areas such as:

  • facility management and operation expertise;
  • wholesale supply of sport equipment and technology; and
  • professional development, training/coaching and education
  • facility design and construction;

It is noteworthy that exports of goods and services from Alberta to China rose by 33.4% to $5.1 billion in 2018 and further that 6 out of the top 10 non-US export markets for Alberta are now in the Asia Pacific region.
