PLA's Annual Convention and Trade Show is the premier gathering of leaders in the public lands sector. Public lands nonprofits, land management agencies and business come to network, gain tools to help advance their agency and organization missions and shop the trade show that features products that educate and appeal to public lands visitors.

We are excited to dive deeper into the following themes at PLA 2023:

  • Sustainable Business Practices

  • Equity and Access in Outdoor Recreation

“I've attended many conference and workshops in the past, but PLA does a great job of bringing together knowledgeable speakers to present on timely topics that are directly applicable to my work. I was able to begin implementing ideas from the session immediately.”
