Community TAB was the major sponsor of the Parks & Leisure Australia WA (PLA WA) Awards of Excellence, on Friday 16 June, for the second year in a row.
The annual awards recognise outstanding initiatives and innovative effort of people who create opportunities for the good use of leisure time for a number of social, environmental and economic benefits to the community.
Award categories include Emerging Leader of the Year, Research Project, Leisure Facilities, Major Playspace and Use of Technology.
Racing and Wagering WA and Community TAB Chairman Jeff Ovens said the TAB has been an ongoing supporter of PLA WA for many years.
“The TAB has been providing turnover to the Department of Sport and Recreation to support bodies such as Parks & Leisure Australia WA for over ten years,” Mr Ovens said.
“We are thrilled to be able to further this partnership by continuing as the major sponsor for the Awards of Excellence, as well as Category Sponsor for the Use of Technology Award.
“Community TAB recognises the imperative role associations such as PLA WA play in ensuring a healthy lifestyle for Western Australians both physically and mentally, and is proud to be affiliated with such an important organisation.”
The winner of the Community TAB Use of Technology Award for 2017 was Spatial Planning & Development Enterprises (SPADE).
SPADE is an innovative planning and cost saving tool based in interactive spatial platform. This smart tool combines the physical location of an asset or facility and its underlying attributes, which can provide a complete understanding of the environment and locality.
SPADE offers time a wealth of information and saving initiatives for what used to be static ‘pain staking’ analysis.
