NIRSA Recreation Facilities Institute presented by Mondo
October 16-18, 2013 • Denver, Colorado
In conjunction with the NIRSA Aquatic Institute and NIRSA Fitness & Wellness Institute
Collegiate recreation programs are a tremendous growth industry nationwide and provide a great marketable asset to colleges and universities. And a booming recreational facilities construction trend has not faltered, even in the face of a slow economy.
The 2012 NIRSA Facilities Construction and Renovation Survey shows nearly 160 projects underway, representing more than $1.7 billion in capital projects. Fifty-five percent of these projects are new construction, while the remaining balance represent renovation projects to existing facilities. Two-thirds of reported projects expect to be completed before 2015.
The building boom for recreational sports facilities continues to increase demand for knowledgeable and qualified facility managers and directors. The NIRSA Recreation Facilities Institute, presented by Mondo, provides in-depth information on planning, constructing, renovating, and operating recreational sports facilities.
NIRSA Recreational Facilities Institute attendees may move freely between educational sessions focused on design/construction or management operations. In addition to the informative educational sessions, facilities tours are included for some of the area's top recreational facilities. The on-campus tours are designed to complement the educational sessions, and the networking opportunities with recreational sports managers/directors and architects from across the nation.
