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 Portland’s popular urban parks (location TBA).

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.

The PTBA Outdoor Demonstration Area and Trade Show 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!
