Revisiting ArborEXPO '21
The first live tree-care show post-COVID took place September 9-10, 2021 in Valley Forge at the Greater Philadelphia EXPO Center in Oaks, PA.
The event has been a few years in the making and was brought to you by the teams at ArborEXPO and Edge Ahead Associates. Sachin Mohan, President of Edge Ahead Associates talks about its inception and plans for the future.
I founded Edge Ahead after a long career in the industry. It took a moment to regroup and figure out how best I could continue to serve the industry that I’ve dedicated my entire career to. I’ve been fortunate to work with amazing clients, but I knew that there was more that I could do. Then Covid happened, and all of the events that the tree care industry relies on for education, business growth, and networking came to a halt.
My goal with ArborEXPO is to create a new and fresh environment for arborists to come together to elevate the industry. You put your life on the line every single day, and this event is structured to give back by connecting you with expert speakers and premium vendors, as well as offering tons of value-added opportunities, including our unique, indoor/outdoor show floor where you can test equipment on site.
It has been a busy and tough year and a half, so you deserve the chance to relax and enjoy, reconnect with your peers, meet new friends, and have a good laugh. The team and I hope you had a wonderful time at ArborEXPO ’21. You can look forward to future events from us because, like this incredibly resilient industry, we will be back to continue supporting you.
Now that ArborEXPO ’21 has come and gone, we want to thank you for attending. More than 850 tree care professionals joined us in Valley Forge for the return to tree care commerce. Attendees benefited from the live demos, two show floors, educational sessions with industry leaders, and were entertained at our lively opening reception.
Stay safe out there.
