Updated to reflect COVID-19 changes as discovered.

Below is the North American Tow Show Schedule 2020–most of which were cancelled due to host locations banning large social gatherings to mitigate COVID-19 spread.

Following a one-year stint in Atlantic City, the American Towman Exposition was scheduled to be back in Baltimore, MD, for the 2020 tow show. The pandemic has forced this reunion to next year. Excitement for the inaugural Towman Games, a Quick Clearance-focused event complete with training, competitions, and exhibits in Cleveland, is also pushed a year.

Lift Marketing Group president Dennis Wencel and team were slotted on the Florida, Cleveland, San Antonio, and Baltimore Tow Show seminar schedules 2020–all of which were cancelled. We’ll look for new ways to educate tow company owners on the importance of quality online marketing.

We compile this tow show schedule list every year to build awareness for one of the best assets to tow company owners today: the local Tow Show.  Let’s keep looking for new ways to take a break, to attend a tow show, and to learn about what others are doing and thinking. We’re all in this together, so let’s share our knowledge and experiences to lift up the entire industry.

Tow shows are the ideal way to learn more about towing, discover ways to improve your towing business, and meet peer towers who know what you go through to make a living. For 2020, the August 18-20 Virtual Towing & Recovery Management Summit is the way to go. Don’t let technology get in the way of attending. With an internet connection and a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, you can connect with other industry professionals more easily than you might expect. (Okay, you might have to pay a grandchild to get you connected the first time.) Register for a free ticket to their opening panel/live Q&A on pandemic business changes, or invest $199 for their four paid sessions covering:

  • Towing basics
  • Cashless operations
  • Cyber security
  • Disaster planning
