Calling all exhibitors!!!

We plan to design the exhibit hall once again as a trails and greenways system where you will also have the opportunity to allow us to “borrow” your products to help us create an exceptional indoor trail system! You must be a paid exhibitor in order to participate.

We are looking for all trail products from trail bridges, restrooms, trail building equipment, bicycles, ATVs, canoes, and camping equipment, to surfacing materials, greenery (trees, shrubs, flowers), signage, benches, picnic tables, and trash receptacles– to name a few.

You will receive recognition for your donated items, as well as give our attendees the opportunity to physically see your trail products first-hand in a virtual trail setting! Don’t forget about donating to the Silent Auction.

Thanks to our generous contributors, at each Symposium we have a wonderful selection of auction items from which to choose. Auction donors are recognized in the Exhibit Hall, in the Symposium Program, in promotional materials, and on web pages.

PTBA Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show

The Professional Trailbuilders Association is sponsoring the Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show, which will run on Sunday, May 17 from 8 am to 6 pm, during the American Trails International Trails Symposium. This is the only trade show in the nation dedicated to trailbuilders and trailbuilding tools, technology, and techniques. The outdoor demonstration area will have dirt, terrain, rocks, logs, and brush for equipment demonstrations. It is the single best opportunity for attendees to try various machines and equipment in a variety of conditions and compare and contrast them with one another. What better way for your company to market your cutting-edge trailbuilding tools, technologies, and products! You will need to be an exhibitor in order to participate in the Outdoor Trade Show.

Recent years have seen the construction of some strikingly beautiful and innovative trail bridge designs. During the International Trails Symposium, trail project managers will have an opportunity to share the beauty of their trail crossings or bridges in the Creative Crossings Photo Gallery. American Trails is proud to showcase those bridges and other trail crossings through a photo gallery displayed in the Exhibit Hall at the Symposium, as well as in an online gallery on the American Trails website.

Submit your print quality photos:

• 10 MB or larger for large format printing in either EPS or TIF format

• 300+ dpi resolution

• include bridge name and location

• photo credit (if needed)

• a short description of the trail crossing project

Email your items (up to 20 mb) to American Trails to symposium@americantrails.org and please include the subject line: Creative Crossings Photo Gallery. If you have several very large photo files, you can use a FTP service such as www.hightail.com or www.dropbox.com.
