CTTA JOINS TOW INDUSTRY WEEK AND
AMERICAN TOWMAN SHOWPLACE - LAS VEGAS
WARWICK, NY - The California Tow Truck Association (CTTA) has entered into 5-year agreement with American Towman Magazine to mutually benefit both organizations and their supporters. The agreement begins with the 2017 Tow Industry Week and American Towman Show Place - Las Vegas next May.
By bringing its annual convention, which includes leadership meetings, conferences and a formal membership banquet to Las Vegas, CTTA will forego its own exhibit-based show that has been held annually for the past several years in Reno, NV and San Diego, CA.
"We are thrilled to join Tow Industry Week and the American Towman ShowPlace in Las Vegas," said Terry Warford, CTTA's president. "We think we will add significantly to the Tow Industry Week, an event that has gained national stature in our industry, and also benefit from its success and marketing power.
"Working with American Towman will help CTTA control its convention costs and also help grow its membership, while giving it a greater platform. The arrangement will also help CTTA to focus on its primary mission: building a more successful towing industry in the great state of California," Warford added.
"CTTA is one of the industry's largest state associations," Henri "Doc" Calitri, president of
A. T. Expo Corp. "The association has a stellar reputation and track record for strengthening its members in California. Working with CTTA will offer many mutual benefits. AT Show Place has drawn well from all the Western states, particularly California. Bringing the CTTA Convention into this event will only strengthen our attendance.
"Our goal is to help CTTA grow its membership, realize fund-raising opportunities, and engage with towers from California and state officials critical to its members' success," Calitri concluded.
American Towman is the towing and recovery industry's oldest and largest circulated monthly trade publication celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Its schedule of three trade shows through its A. T. Expo Corp. division in 2017 are: American Towman ShowPlace - Las Vegas in May, Tow Expo Dallas in August, and American Towman Exposition, Baltimore in November.
CTTA is a membership-driven state towing association headquartered in Sacramento, CA.
