Trail Bridge was a feature of the exhibit hall in
Little Rock at the 2008 Symposium
The American Trails “Trails & Greenways” Exhibit Hall is the showcase for products and services for the trails and greenways community. In 2010, 80 exhibitors created displays and booths at the 20th National Trails Symposium in Chattanooga, TN. The exhibit hall was designed as an Indoor Trails & Greenways System complete with a Camping Area, Trail Tools Area, City Park Area, Horse Exhibit Area, and an actual Labyrinth trail maze you can walk— all of this is surrounded by trails meandering throughout and landscaping in abundance. We plan to do the same for Arizona in April 2013!
In the Exhibit Hall, you will also find the Poster Gallery and Silent Auction, as well as the place you’ll enjoy Happy Trails Hours and breaks. A Guide to Sponsors & Exhibitors, Presenters & Attendees will be made available online in PDF format closer to the Symposium, which will include exhibitor contact information and a description of services or products offered. To be listed in the Exhibitors Guide, you must be a paid exhibitor and have signed a contract.
John Deere exhibit featuring big equipment at the 2006 Quad Cities
Calling all exhibitors for April 2013!! We plan to design the exhibit hall once again as a trails & greenways system where you will also have the opportunity to allow us to “borrow” your products to help us create an exceptional indoor trail system! You must be a paid exhibitor in order to participate. Download the exhibitor contract now!
We are looking for all trail products from trail bridges, restrooms, trail building equipment, bicycles, ATVs, canoes, and camping equipment, to surfacing materials, greenery (trees, shrubs, flowers), signage, benches, picnic tables, and trash receptacles– to name a few. You will receive recognition for your donated items, as well as give our attendees the opportunity to physically see your trail products first-hand in a virtual trail setting!
Don’t miss this great opportunity to view the latest in trails technology, products, equipment, planning, and programs. View many of our exhibitor’s products “along the trail” in the exhibit hall, as well as viewing “hands on” presentations/demonstrations of our exhibitors' products or services.
Labyrinths in the Exhibit Hall
“Labyrinths are meditative trails where travelers enter a single path to a central destination and exit along the same route.” A popular feature at several of the Symposium locations has been a walking labyrinth. In 2010, the Tennessee River Meander Labyrinth was designed and installed by Spiral Quest specifically for the American Trails National Trails Symposium. A business sponsor of the Symposium, Spiral Quest showcased their services: energy-field and body therapies, celebrations, rituals, workshops, and publications that facilitate the health and healing of both individuals and communities. Learn more at www.spiralquest.com.

This three-circuit labyrinth design, the Tennessee River Meander Labyrinth, was an unusual trail experience awaiting visitors in the exhibit hall. "Meander" refers to the winding, turning course of the Tennessee River as it passes through Chattanooga, around two islands and Moccasin Bend. Meander also reflects the slow relaxed walk it offers you. They are fertile places for the mind, spirit, and body.

Silent & Live Auctions
Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls has been donating an
engraved bench with the Symposium’s theme each year
Thanks to our generous contributors, at each Symposium we have a wonderful selection of auction items from which to choose. Both Silent and Live Auctions are features of the conference. Auction donors are recognized in the Exhibit Hall, in the Symposium Program, and in promotional materials and wweb pages.
Building Public Awareness for Trails: Discover, Learn, and Celebrate Trails!
