American Towman Cancels All 2020 Tow Shows
In light of the uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the banning of large social gatherings in the host cities and the concern for the safety of attendees and exhibitors, American Towman has cancelled all four of its 2020 shows in Cleveland, Las Vegas, San Antonio and Baltimore.
The decision was made after comprehensive discussions with each of the convention centers in those cities, a release from the company stated.
“Given the current climate of the pandemic and the edicts of mayors and governors not allowing conventions, it has become impossible to plan and hold our shows in these cities,” A. T. Expo Corp. President Henri “Doc” Calitri said in the release.
“Tow business owners and industry suppliers are facing unprecedented challenges to their businesses caused by the pandemic,” Calitri continued. “Our company, too, has been hit hard. But American Towman plays the leading role in our industry for connecting our industry suppliers with the owners of towing and recovery operations. We know that tow bosses and suppliers alike count on us to be a catalyst to their success and growth. Our commitment to this important role is steadfast.”
American Towman said that an announcement on the dates for next year will be made shortly.
