Last year amid the peak of the first coronavirus national lockdown the Arboriculture Association was forced to make the difficult decision to cancel the ARB Show, moving it to an online event.
It has now decided to once again run the ARB Show as a virtual event in 2021 on May 28-30. The decision was made in the interest of not only public safety, but also the safety of exhibitors.
“With the Government’s scheduled route out of the current national lockdowns, it wouldn’t be possible for us to plan and prepare an event in May that is both safe and delivers the value that our exhibitors and visitors expect,” explained a spokesperson.
“We are disappointed to have to cancel the event again but have instead focused on enhancing our Virtual event offering.”
The 2021 Virtual ARB Show will feature a new and improved online platform allowing users to visit virtual exhibition stands, exclusive demonstrations, live webinars, competitions and of course a host of discounts and offers that you won’t find anywhere else.
Between 15-17 May 2020 the Virtual ARB Show attracted over 15,000 digital visits. With the successful series of free webinars that have been running since March 2020, and the global audience that now routinely watch; the association is confident that this Virtual Arb Show will connect with an even larger audience than would have been possible at a physical event.
Exhibitor booking will launch soon, and it will be announcing features and more information for online visitors over the coming weeks.
