THE combined APF 2022 and Arb Show has sold a record number of advance tickets ahead of September's long-awaited event. 

More than 25,000 trade visitors and 300 exhibitors are expected to head to the Ragley Estate, Warwickshire, with demand in May equalling 25 per cent of the entire total for the 2018 show, the last to be held.

Organisers of the three-day event - which will become the UK’s largest forestry, woodland, fencing, trees and timber show - have now thanked the sector for its support. 

Exhibition secretary Ian Millward said: “We are delighted with advance tickets sales for the event. 

"In May we saw sales equalling 25 per cent of our entire total for the 2018 event. 

"Exhibitor bookings are very strong and we have very little demonstration circuit space left.

"I get the feeling that the whole industry is really looking forward to the event after having to cancel in 2020 and with all the new events and features for this year it is going to be a great show.”

APF 2022 and The Arb Show is being held at Ragley Estate, Alcester, Warwickshire between September 22-24.
