On behalf of the Towing & Recovery Association of Ohio (TRAO) www.trao.org , the 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. 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 seminars and demos have been a great focal point for many that like to learn. TRAO realizes the importance of training, safety and improvements for businesses in this industry so we plan many seminars during the show to provide extra intellect!!

Thank you to everyone who participated in previous years. Let’s make our 46th year as successful as the previous show as we celebrate the 2024 Midwest Regional Tow Show !
