Join Us for the Florida Tow Show 2018, April 5-8!

Orlando, Florida - April 5th - 8th 2018


Are you ready for the 2018 Florida Tow Show? The event is full of fantastic sunny weather, meeting new friends in the towing industry, and exciting new models of trucks, equipment, and showpiece rigs. Hotel rooms are selling out fast – there’s special “Tow Show” room rate pricing at great family friendly hotels like the Holiday Inn and the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace. The show itself is at the Orlando Hilton – there are still a few rooms left, so hurry!

All the affiliated hotels are close enough to walk to the Hilton for the events. This is great, as you’ll be able to enjoy the gorgeous Florida weather. Exhibits are open Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7 from 9 to 5, and Sunday, April 8 from 9 til noon. Expect a lot of exciting displays, professional advice, and plenty of giveaways and drawings – so bring lots of business cards!

The one booth you shouldn’t miss – one of the most popular at last year’s show – is the East Coast Truck & Trailer Sales at the International Expo. We’ve been in the industry for over twenty years and we know the towing business inside and out. Visit us to take advantage of expo-only parts, specials, and discount opportunities. If you need towing parts, we’ve got what you’re looking for!

Don’t forget to save a seat at the business seminars, where you can learn the best practices in our industry, and talk to leaders who have turned a one-truck towing venture into a thriving business with multiple rigs. We’re a network of small business owners – discover what you’ve been missing at topic-specific seminars.

You’ll spend the day meeting other owner-operators, specialty vendors, and small business professionals. Before the tradeshow starts on Friday, come early to play a round of golf for a good cause in the 11th Annual USAC/ MD Charity Golf Classic. In the evenings, enjoy special events – the kick-off party on Thursday night is a low-key way to get to know new people and catch up with old friends. On Friday, enjoy the Customer Appreciation Night and Street Party sponsored by Miner Industries. Saturday night is the Allstate Family Fun night – perfect to wrap up the weekend with the whole fam, making new friends and business contacts. The Tow Truck Beauty contest is the highlight of the evening – are you dressing up your rig?


If you’re in the market for a new or used wrecker, we invite you to shop our website at ECTTS.COM. There you will find our huge selection of MPLs, rollbacks, medium and heavy duty wreckers. Our friendly sales representatives are eager to show and tell you all about some of the most powerful towing options on the road today. As one of the premier Jerr-Dan dealers on the east coast, our pricing is the lowest you will find. If you’re just starting in the business, ask about our restored, previously owned and well cared for used wreckers and recovery trucks.

Don’t miss the fun, friends, and exciting exhibits at the 2018 Florida Tow Show! If you haven’t booked your hotel rooms yet, hurry – the special rate rooms are selling out fast. All partner hotels are within walking distance, with regularly scheduled shuttles to and from the vendor sites each day. Learn valuable skills at the specialty business seminars during the day, exhibit your products and services, and enjoy plenty of fun-laden social events.
