Record number of exhibitors lined up for next month's APF exhibition

A record number of exhibitors are lined up for the woodland, forestry and arboriculture APF 2016 exhibition which takes place from 15th to 17th September at the Ragley Estate in Warwickshire, exhibition secretary, Ian Millward, has reported.

During June organisers announced that the show's display area was now full and that extra space would be created to accommodate the high level of demand.

"We decided to offer the option of a slightly smaller and cheaper stand this year and this has attracted a lot of new companies who have not exhibited with us before," said exhibition secretary Ian Millward.

Exhibitors from 12 countries will be attending. 

Events for visitors include: 

  • The Husqvarna World 25m Pole Climbing Championships
  • The UPM Tilhill and A W Jenkinson European Chainsaw Carving Competition
  • UK Forwarder Driving Competition sponsored by Komatsu
  • Horse Logging 
  • Bio Security, Bio energy, wood fuel and tree health seminars sponsored by Forest & Land Management Ltd.
  • Seminars and advice on forestry education, training and careers
  • The World 'Log to leg' pole lathe turning championship
