Our first year of UK related trade shows ended with a week in Warwickshire at the APF.
What blew us away initially was the sheer enormity of the event. The set-up alone took 3 days during which a constant flow of heavy machinery and plant rumbled past our tent day and night. I don’t think a minute went by without one of us eyeing up some insane piece of kit!
The show began steadily on Thursday, with presumably only company owners or hardcore machinery enthusiasts willing to give up what would inevitably end up being two days off work – It would be impossible to make your way around the show in less. Friday & Saturday was nuts – It was really cool to see so many Arbs together in one place…The TREEKIT tent!
In terms of other show attractions; some of the wood carvings blew our minds and the European Pole Climbing Champs always entertains! I’m sure there was much more to take in but sadly none of us really got the chance to leave the TREEKIT Tent.
We had a great three days trading and it was brilliant to meet a whole heap of new faces. Plenty of new shiny kit left the tent (mostly paid for!); obvious favourites this time were the REECOIL Full Reach Lanyard, The 4SRT Chester; the new E-Vac Pack from Silverbull and the new range of gear from COURANT featuring the Koala Harness, Cross-Pro bags & Phoenix hitch cord.
See you all again in September 2018!!!
