Donate your product/services to the exhibit hall design!
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. (Some items have already been secured. Please contact Emmy Fabich, Exhibit Hall Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.)
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.
Silent and Live Auctions
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 the website. The Silent Auction will take place in the exhibit hall during. The auction opens at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 7 and runs through 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 (on Tuesday the auction display will be moved near the registration area since the exhibit hall closes on Monday afternoon). The Live Auction will take place at the offsite Trails Rock Party on Monday, May 8 but these items will be displayed in the exhibit hall until then. Learn more and donate to the auction…
PTBA Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show
The Professional TrailBuilders Association is sponsoring the Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show, which will run during the same hours that the exhibit hall is open (Sunday, May 7 to Monday, May 8). The Outdoor Tradeshow will be located adjacent to the convention center. 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 indoor exhibitor in order to participate in the Outdoor Trade Show. There is an additional small fee to participate in the Outdoor Trade Show.
