On behalf of the Towing & Recovery Association of Ohio (TRAO) www.trao.org , Towing & Recovery Association of Kentucky www.trak-inc.com and the West Virginia Towing & Recovery Association www.wvtow.com , we appreciate the support of our members, volunteers, show sponsors, exhibitors and attendees in making the Midwest Regional Tow Show the largest tow show in the Midwest.
This event, referred to as the Family Towing Affair, is planned with attendees in mind — including families. Children are entertained on Friday and Saturday evenings, allowing parents to attend show events. The Women of TRAO hosts a luncheon featuring a “Safety Fashion Show” with new apparel from AW Direct. Male “models” are chosen from within our industry and represent towers, industry leaders and exhibitors who are willing to strut the runway while showcasing their unique personalities and attitudes.
Our first annual golf outing was a huge success as well as the TIM class, North American training class, seminars and demos. If that isn’t enough, step inside the Dale Earnhardt Jr. racecar simulator and take it for a spin.
TRAO invited state senators and representatives to the show to discuss challenges our industry faces. Following an open forum discussion between legislators and members, the politicians were shuttled through the show via six-passenger golf carts to view the equipment on display, and members of the TRAO legislative committee were on hand to answer their questions.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 37th year. Let’s make our 38th year as successful as the previous one as we also celebrate 2016: the 100th year of the commercial tow truck.
