Nationally known Extrication Expert Ron Moore along with Towing & Recovery Instructor Wes Wilburn team up to bring a 2-day session using NFPA techniques and procedures in conformance with NFPA Standards. There will also be free seminars and demos during the trade show! The trade show itself will be held on May 13 & 14, 2016 and will feature inside and outside vendors along with advanced level educa- tional events. Enjoy the "something for everyone" atmosphere from tow trucks and Harley Davidson motorcycles to sun filled days on the beach, lazy river pools, the free water park at the Crown Reef, shopping at the Tanger outlets, to a vibrant night life on Broadway at the beach and Boardwalk. Come for the Tow Truck Trade Show and stay for the Spring Motorcycle Rally (May 14-22), also known as Harley Davidson week. The Spring Motorcycle Rally (May 14-22), which began in 1940 (yes…1940 was year 1) has changed greatly from 1940 and Myrtle Beach Bike Week continues to change with the Grand Strand. The Spring Rally is a major riding event with great South Carolina Weather. People come from all over the United States and beyond to ride the coastline and beautiful North & South Carolina back roads. The Trade Show will be held on an Ocean front resort, Crown Reef Resort, which has many benefits including its own convention center providing inside and outside exhibit space and is one of the few Myrtle Beach hotels with a water- park! Tow Truck Show & Shine Beauty Contest will feature custom and working towing units from far & near with 100% of the money raised going to the Wounded Warriors, which helps thou- sands of injured warriors returning from the battlefield and helps provide assis- tance to their families. We highly encourage all towing opera- tors and fire-rescue personal to attend this retreat for many reasons. There will be current information from all of the ven- dors, seminar/demo, speakers/other towers. Mini vacation at reasonable prices and all of the good things that Myrtle Beach, SC and the Grand Strand area have to offer! So after a hard winter towing this will be the perfect get away to recharge yourself with some Sun, Family Fun and more! Vendors please request an exhibitor package to reserve your prime selling space for spring 2016. Limited inside and outdoor vendor space, along with spon- sorship opportunities are available. www.towersretreat.org The American Towing and Recovery institute is a not for profit, membership based organization with member compa- nies from all across the United States & beyond.
