Titled 'Breaking the Mould: Managing parks in a changing world', the conference is run by South West green spaces organisation Green Connect. It will focus on how to run parks and green spaces in the face of continuing budget cuts.
Organisers have extended the earlybird price of £85 to tickets booked before September 9 to ensure as many delegates as possible can attend.
Camley, who is also chairman of The Parks Alliance, will speak about the LLDC's plans for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and approaches to making the park financially sustainable. Workshops held at the conference will look at different ideas for funding, with a focus on the Rethinking Parks innovation programme, a joint partnership between Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and Nesta.
Eleven projects being piloted through the programme will draw to a close at the end of 2015, but interim findings from some of those projects will be presented at the conference.
Conference organisers are also calling on companies which are innovating in the amenity and parks sector to consider taking a trade stand at the conference.
