The Professional TrailBuilders Association (PTBA) and the American Trails International Trails Symposium are proud to feature for a second Symposium the Professional TrailBuilders Association’s (PTBA) Sustainable Trails Workshop Series, Legacy Trail, Technical Track, and Outdoor Trade Show. Through this program, they will offer a series of hands-on workshops focusing on the important skills and techniques involved in the sustainable design, planning, construction, and maintenance of trails for all types of users in all types of environments. This series of workshops will result in a local segment of sustainably and professionally built trail being left behind as a legacy of the American Trails ITS and the PTBA Sustainable Trails Workshop.

2017 Sustainable Trails Workshops
PTBA Sustainable Trails Workshop Series and Legacy Trail
American Trails is continuing to provide a lasting impact to our Symposium locations by teaming up with PTBA to construct another “Legacy Trail.” This project will build upon the work of several workshops in the PTBA Sustainable Trails Workshop Series to provide a beautiful trail at one of Dayton’s popular urban parks (location TBD).
Exhibitors are invited to be a part of this exciting project. If you are interested in sponsoring the Legacy Trail, your equipment and tools can be a major part of this project – providing unparalleled opportunities for attendees to see and use your equipment in a real-world trail construction project.
PTBA Technical Track of Concurrent Sessions
In addition to offering Sustainable Trails Workshops and their world-famous Outdoor Trade Show and Demonstration Area, PTBA will offer a Technical Track of Concurrent Sessions within the 2017 International Trails Symposium program. PTBA will be seeking presentation proposals from leaders in the trail building industry. Their general list of topic areas will be incorporated in the Call for Presentations. Proposals will be submitted through the same process.
PTBA Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show
The PTBA Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show will run during the American Trails International Trails Symposium, the exact date of the trade show is to be determined. 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 techniques!
To sign up as a vendor to display your equipment in the Outdoor Trade Show, be sure and mark this on the exhibitor form (page 11 of the Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities Packet). You must be an exhibitor in order to participate in the Outdoor Trade Show and there is a small additional fee.
