The Professional Recovery Tow Show has announced the dates for next year’s show. The organisers have renewed their contract with the Telford International Centre but have decided to move the show from its usual Thursday and Friday slot to Wednesday and Thursday 7-8 September.
Paul Gregory, the Tow Show director said: “The slight change in the show days is something we have been considering for a couple of years. Having the show on a Wednesday and Thursday will work a little better for many exhibitors and visitors because Friday traffic builds up much earlier in the day and we want our visitors to enjoy the show right up to closing time if that is their preference.
“Other than that everything stays the same. The set-up day will be Tuesday 6 September with the show taking place on the Wednesday and Thursday 7-8 September. Every year we have modified the show to improve the experience for everyone involved. We have even explored different venues for next year but the Telford International Centre offers us the space we need, the car parking, ample space for the evening Gala Charity Dinner and most importantly plenty of hotel rooms on site.
“We have had detailed talks with the Telford International Centre and they have given us assurances that the access to hotel rooms will be improved for next year’s show. There were a few problems this year and they have been addressed.”
The Tow Show is the UK’s biggest industry showcase and this year’s show was a complete sell out as Paul Gregory said:
“This year was sold out a month before the event which is probably an indication of the confidence that has returned to the market place. We are keen to start selling exhibition space even earlier this year so if exhibitors are interested in attending we are keen to hear from them to ensure they get the space they prefer.
“This year’s exhibitors will be getting a reminder that they need to book their space early to avoid disappointment – so please give me a call.”
Dave Gregory, editor of Professional Recovery magazine said: “We work very hard to tell our readers the value of attending the Tow Show. It is the one day of the year that operators should make the effort to attend. All the major work providers exhibit at the show and they all dedicate key members of staff to talk to operators.
“It isn’t everyone who is in the market for a new truck but if you are then all the major manufacturers are at the show with their latest pieces of kit. On top of that the Tow Show is a ‘Who’s Who’ of the recovery industry so if you are looking for parts, accessories, finance or insurance, just about everyone you need to talk to is there.”
The Tow Show sponsors will again be Shawbrook Asset Finance.
