For the first time in it’s famous history the first stage of the Tour De France started in the UK and to celebrate we have got a strong cycling theme at this year’s Tow Show. On Thursday and Friday we have one of the worlds leading freestyle trials riders Chris Doney performing a breathtaking stunt routine.
Shawbrook’s long-standing dedication to the industry remains strong and its passion for recovery reflects that of its clients.
For over twenty years, Shawbrook’s Asset Finance team has immersed itself in the recovery market. During that time, other lenders have come and gone, or put their focus elsewhere, but Shawbrook has remained committed. The industry has changed dramatically over that time and now operators are under more pressure from more directions than ever before. New legislation such as emission zones; the changing demands from motoring groups and associations; and the increasingly competitive market means that operators need to work their equipment harder and smarter.
AVRO have stated on a recent newsletter that they will not be exhibiting at this year’s Tow Show saying that ‘the Show no longer reflects the interests of the independent recovery operator’.
Professional Recovery Editor Dave Gregory responds
Editor Dave Gregory is passionate about the recovery industry and the Tow Show is a chance to meet work providers and catch up with friends. So why don’t you all attend?
Operators are always proud of their latest job and when they are in my company they are only too happy to go into lengthy detail about what kit they used and how long it took to complete. Well, now’s your chance to be recognised for it!
This year’s Business Seminar will be held in the Wenlock Suite on the set-up day of the show (Wednesday 10 September).
The Business Seminar is well-established as an integral part of the show with over 100 delegates attending. The aim is to address two or three topics that are relevant and this year is no execption.
In a few weeks’ time the Tow Show will be opening its doors to the public in the annual two day extravaganza celebrating all that is good about the UK recovery industry.
Many of you will know that the show also highlights and raises funds for the work of RISC, the independent industry charity.
The Professional Recovery Tow Show Equipment Sponsor, Recovery Equipment Direct (RED) are delighted to announce that all visitors who attend this year’s Tow Show will once again be entered into a free draw to win a Super Voucher worth £1,500 of equipment or clothing to be spent with RED.
This year’s Tow Show is well ahead of schedule. We have most of the major sponsors all signed up for the show and have sold nearly 70% of the exhibition stands. The message to potential exhibitors is loud and clear – book your space to avoid disappointment!
