The conference features 3 presentation formats:

2. Seminar Session - 3 hour session during the Core Conference (March 19-21) that provides opportunity for more in-depth and even potentially hands-on exploration of subject matter.

3. Workshops - 1-day, 1.5-day, 2-day, or 2.5 day hands-on workshops before (March 17-18) and after (March 22-23). Past workshops have included Trail Design, Trail Assessment, Mechanized Trailbuilding, Designing/Building Turns, Stonework, Building/Retrofitting for accessibility, etc. Workshop instructors will be paid 70% of the NET profit from the registration costs of their workshop. PTBA will work with each workshop individually to create a cost model.
