We’re more than halfway done with TCI EXPO 2013, but there’s still plenty to do and see before the trade show ends. For those of you with Friday Only Passes, check out yesterday’s blog post to catch up on what you missed. Otherwise, keep reading to see what we have planned for today:
Discuss Business, Safety and Arboriculture at our Education Sessions
Many of you may have already experienced TCI EXPO’s high-quality education sessions and forums, but for those who haven’t, Friday’s packed schedule provides the perfect opportunity to get a crash course in business, safety and arboriculture.
Our education sessions cover everything from business management to marketing best practices; safety techniques to plant health management strategies - and much more! You can even join a roundtable discussion of the new proposed ANSI A300 Standards revisions - and watch the future of the tree care industry take shape, right here at TCI EXPO.
The TCI EXPO Friday schedule is packed, so take a moment to review the schedule and plan ahead to make the most of your TCI EXPO experience. To view the full schedule of education sessions and other events, click here.
Get Your Picture on the Cover of TCI Magazine
TCI Magazine, the official publication of the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), is the most widely read periodical in the tree care industry, and is frequently used by arborists as a resource for timely, informative updates on the tree care industry.
For the first time ever, we’re now offering you the chance to get on the “cover” of TCI Magazine! Simply stop by TCIA Publications Booth #105, pose in front of our green screen, and you’ll get an 8.5x11" photo of yourself as the star of our latest issue! The Publications Booth is only open from 1 - 3 p.m. today, so pencil in time to get this very unique TCI EXPO souvenir.
(By the way, copies of TCI Magazine are completely free - just sign up here to have new issues delivered straight to your door. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did!)
Gather ‘Round the Demo Tree
One of the most active sections of the TCI EXPO trade show floor is the Tree Demonstration area, where you can watch demonstrations of arborist skills from national professionals, plus earn up to .75 CEUs while you watch!
The tree demonstrations, which are being provided by North American Training Solution, ArborMaster and Kramer Tree Specialists, Inc. this year, run in intervals through TCI EXPO. Each demonstration showcases a variety of advanced skills, including aerial rescue techniques; climbing, rigging and work positioning; single rope techniques (SRT) - and much more!
