Media and Press

TCI EXPO, the world’s largest tree care trade show and conference, is coming to Charlotte, North Carolina, in November!

The biggest names in the industry will meet at the Charlotte Convention Center, Thursday November 8 through Saturday, November 10 for workshops, seminars, and demonstrations. Not to mention, there will be an entire show floor packed with impressive technology, new gear and massive tree care equipment. And, you'll find a 30-foot demo-tree right in the middle of the show floor where you can score exciting shots of the action.

This convention offers plenty of dynamic stories and photos. If you're a member of the press, consider covering TCI EXPO!
