2017 ITCC Sponsorship Opportunities

Why Sponsor The ITCC

The International Tree Climbing Championship (ITCC) provides a platform for ISA to showcase the arboriculture profession to the public and provide educational opportunities. Attracting up to 60 competitors, 80 volunteers, and more than 500 public attendees on an annual basis, this event focuses on safety, promoting the arboriculture profession, and bringing public awareness.

Sponsorship helps support:
  • Educational and networking opportunities for participants and attendees
  • Promotion of safe work practices by the demonstration of climbing proficiency and the use of best practices and industry safety standards.
  • Creating a safe environment to introduce new techniques and technology through interactions between arborists, manufacturers, suppliers, researchers, and trainers.
  • Making the event more "fan-friendly" by increasing the accessibility for the public through adequate site location, regional promotions, and educational opportunities

If you are interested in sponsoring the 2017 ITCC in Washington D.C., US, please contact or call +1 217.355-9411.

There are also opportunities for sponsoring events at the Annual International Conference and Show. View sponsorship opportunities for the Annual International Conference.
