Receive, consider and act upon a resolution supporting a bid submittal to host the 2019 Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS) Annual Institute;
There is no anticipated direct expenditure of funds related to hosting the TRAPS Annual Institute. There will be Township Parks and Recreation staff resources necessary to provide support for the Annual Institute.
The Woodlands Township has been working with The Woodlands Convention and Visitors Bureau to develop a bid packet to host the 2019 Texas Recreation and Parks Society Annual Institute. The Woodlands Marriott and Convention Center will be the host facility for this event, if the Society accepts the bid.
Historically, the TRAPS Annual Institute averages between 900-1,400 attendees, including approximately 600-1,000 delegates, speakers, and/or volunteers; and an average of 225 exhibitors, who meet annually to interact, network, and learn about trends, new products and services during the annual Texas Recreation and Park Society Institute. The economic impact upon a host community, on average, is approximately half a million dollars.
The Woodlands Township hosted this event in 2012 which was very successful in attendance and participant satisfaction surveys. The Township Board approved a similar Resolution of Support for that bid submission. A Resolution Dedicating Resources to Support the Bid for the 2019 Texas Recreation and Park Society Institute and Expo has been prepared (Attachment A).
