Success all around The ARB Show 2011

The ARB Show 2011 has been heralded a resounding success, with visitors enjoying a busy two days
The Arboricultural Association’s 13th annual trade fair welcomed arborists from across Great Britain and beyond to its new site on the picturesque Bathurst Estate in Gloucestershire. Escaping serious rain, almost 1,600 visitors and another 400 demonstrators, competitors and exhibitors attended the two days of the show, with numbers reaffirming the event’s standing as the country’s biggest trade show dedicated to arb.
Over 80 exhibiting companies lined up at this year’s ARB Show (making it a 99% sell-out), and reports from those with stands were of strong and positive trade.
Main show sponsor STIHL, who used the occasion to launch their new MS 201 Tophandled Chainsaw, described the event as “A very successful show and an excellent platform to launch the new chainsaw which attracted strong interest and a lot of positive feedback from exhibitors” says Sally –Ann James product marketing manager.
Julian Cullis – Regional Manager of Greenmech described it as “The best Cirencester show for a few years.” Vermeer is another chipper company exhibiting at the Show, and Sales Manager, MartinWard reported they had done good business from their stand, saying it had been “A very enjoyable event, and it’s been good to catch up with old customers and to meet potential new ones.”
“Among the great benefits of spending a day at The ARB Show, is the opportunity to see, try and buy a whole host of specialist equipment, update skills and ask questions of industry peers”, says Nick Eden, Director of the Arboricultural Association. And visitors certainly had the opportunity to do all at this year’s event.
Visitors could also update important but admittedly rare-practised skills by watching a staged aerial rescue from spikes on a pole, and gained valuable paramedic advice on managing work site trauma and serious bleeds.
