5 Reasons to Attend the 2018 Tow Summit 

The towing and recovery industry continues to undergo rapid changes. Keeping your eye on the road has a much broader meaning than sitting behind a steering wheel. Moving forward, your company must address technology, HR issues, tax changes, legislation … and much more. Don’t face these issues alone. Attend this year’s Tow Summit to access the tools to help you face what’s headed your way.

  1. Insight: The towing industry is not alone in its challenges to hire and keep dispatchers. Hear how other industries, including a large police dispatch center, are addressing similar problems on the Dispatch Dilemma panel.
  2. Expertise: You’ve heard about and read the hype about tax reform. Now hear the truth from Ron Mills, a CPA at Carr, Riggs & Ingram, about how your business could be impacted by the new tax plan.
  3. Intrigue: Hear more from Tennessee Homeland Security special agent Barry Crotzer as he continues last year’s discussion topic on how to prepare for Terrorism Threats on Today’s Roadways.
  4. Income: A lot of towing businesses do not collect up to 10% of potential income either through incomplete invoices or short pay from vendors. Are you leaving money on the table?
  5. Fun: Nashville, Tennessee ranks 8th on Travel & Leisure 2017 list of America’s Favorite Cities. Come to Nashville for the Tow Summit and find out. You’ll run out of time!
  6. The following associations have negotiated rates for their members. Check with your association for a discount code.
