Highlights from The American Towman ShowPlace 2023  

The energy and enthusiasm at the American Towman ShowPlace were truly electrifying. We are thrilled to have been part of this remarkable event and inspired by the towing community's passion and dedication.

Three Days of Exciting Activities

No one does educational conferences like American Towman. 500+ exhibitors from across the industry gathered to showcase ways businesses can accelerate their growth.

With in-depth, intelligent briefings at its core, towers could educate themselves on crucial emergency road service operations issues to effectively manage their towing business.

This show was designed to set towers up for success, from war games to recovery theaters! Technical presentations were set up across the two-day event to help towers build their revenue. The topics ranged from lawsuit protection and tax reductions to perpetuating towing businesses to how they can increase their profits with KPIs best suited for each company.

The main topics covered across these seminars included:

Safety Conferences

Experts from across the country came together to discuss the most critical issue for towers, roadside safety, and its best practices. They had everything from age-old concepts and standards of chain manufacturing, by Terry Abejuela from American Towman, to electrocution hazards at crash sites, highlighted by Bobby Tuttle from CIRT.

Towing & Recovery

The importance of a work-life balance was an integral part of these seminars. Brian J Riker from American Towman and Michelle Sukow from HDM Truck Center.

Building Revenue

These conferences covered a wide range of topics to help towers protect and perpetuate their businesses in the future. The talks covered everything, from getting their finances in check and growing their online visibility to tax reductions and future planning.

Towers were briefed by top experts in the industry, like Ed Grubbs & Jim Figueira from Environmental Chemical Solutions, on best practices for accident remediation and how to handle hazardous waste, insurer needs, and how to mitigate risk.

In addition, they also had a variety of certifications towers could earn.

Allstate Training Sessions Featuring Stephanie Richards

Training talks and seminars conducted by industry professionals took center stage at this year’s Allstate Training seminars. Towers from across the nation learned solutions to their daily problems. We were thrilled to see full sessions with every speaker!

Windshield Wisdom: This open forum concept allowed business owners to voice their concerns and gain knowledge from experts. This allowed Towers to ask professional questions to grow their business in an informal Q&A setting.

EV Solutions: Towers were trained to handle EV vehicles from Ford to Tesla. Experts broke down the basics from a simple vehicle breakdown to electrical malfunctions and fires and how to deal with them appropriately.

GM Vehicle Updates: Changes in towing procedures, identifying high voltage components, and continued education for GM-manufactured vehicles were highlighted.

Pro Luxury Talks: Experts shared their opinions on best practices when dealing with high-priced luxury vehicles. For instance, use dollies for luxury vehicles to eliminate damage exposure if you are not moving by flatbed.

Gifts and Giveaways: Floor prizes were a huge attraction during the training sessions, ranging from Nite Beams Safety Vests to tow truck tools donated by Access Tools.
