Skills Arena

TCIA is excited to announce the interactive skills arena on the TCI EXPO 2019 trade show floor! Each session is complete with instruction, demonstration and hands-on experience for participants and observers, all under the eye of the North American Training Solutions safety team. Teams of 3-4 people compete in a variety of skill set games including chain saw use, climbing, rigging, and aerial rescue, with the winning team receiving a prize bundle of some incredible arborist gear.

Head to the Skills Arena when the trade show floor opens each morning to sign up for specific challenges. All challenges are first-come, first-served, and space is limited.

 

Virtual Reality

This PlayStation’s VR platform offers a distinct experience, using the latest PS4 game system, along with the best VR headgear and controllers. Experience a natural, intuitive and realistic feel – all in a virtual world. Attendees of all skill levels can put on the headset and enjoy an immersive experience right on the trade room floor!

 

Laser Engraving

One of the best giveaways at our trade show is personalized– an item that can be used and remembered! This short engraving process only takes a few moments, however, it can be personalized in advance with a product, company logo, or web site in a discreet (or prominent) fashion.

 

Unboxing Ring

We are showcasing a new Unboxing Ring, where you can learn about climbing products and gear from the arborists who use them! These 15-minute sessions will show gear “unboxed” and “in action” by independent TCIA-approved trainers. Climbing and rigging equipment contenders are demonstrated and reviewed by industry training experts. Here's your chance to see the new stuff right out of the box. Get there early for a good seat (standing spot) and bring your questions for the creators of these unique components.

 

Student QUAD

Student Career Days (SCD) is the largest FREE career development event available to students pursuing a formal education in arboriculture and related studies. Each year, hundreds of students meet at TCIA EXPO for two days of learning, networking, and growing.

This year’s event offers an industry job fair with over a dozen booths, skill-based activities including knot tying and safety gear checks and SCD’s newest event, a vertical rope ascent on the trade show floor.

Students will put their skills to the test, win prizes and earn bragging rights, network with industry professionals, and leave with new friends and more career opportunities.

The Student QUAD will be where students participate in events like the Safety Gear Check, Knot Tying or a Discussion Panel.

 

Free Giveaways

Amongst all the SWAG given out at the TCI EXPO, our TCI Magazine will be giving out free t-shirts to anyone who stops by our Services Center! Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind t-shirt representing the fantastic experience you had at the 2019 TCI EXPO!
