Annual Conference

The ISA Annual International Conference and Trade Show provides a forum for the exchange of information and opportunities to network with others in the arboricultural profession. The event provides a lineup of educational sessions led by industry leaders from around the globe, sharing their thoughts and views about the newest trends in equipment, practice, technology and research in arboriculture and urban forestry. It is the world’s premier gathering of arboricultural professionals, where practicing arborists and urban foresters come together with top researchers and educators.

2020 Conference Update

ISA has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person 2020 ISA Annual International Conference and Trade Show slated for 15-17 December 2020. The safety and well-being of our attendees, members, employees, partners and vendors remains our top priority. This decision was made due to recent developments in COVID-19 cases, the restrictions placed by public health officials on large gatherings through 2020 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the overall climate surrounding travel and meetings.
 
We want to take this time to thank the ISA Rocky Mountain Chapter for their leadership throughout the entire planning process. The members of the Conference Planning Committee were prepared to host an exceptional conference and we cannot thank them enough for their insights and efforts.
 
While we are disappointed we will not be able to meet in person this year, we are excited to announce that ISA is working towards a virtual experience where attendees will have the opportunity to earn continuing education units, listen to Keynote Speakers, engage with presentations and presenters, and network with their peers from the comfort of their homes. ISA plans on making this event accessible on a global scale reflecting our international community, and we look forward to sharing more information in the coming weeks on how to participate in this virtual experience.
 
ISA thanks all of its members, attendees, and partners for their continued support and enthusiasm for this event, and we look forward to meeting virtually this year, and in-person as soon as we are able to do so safely. Learn more about the 2020 conference.
