We get a lot of questions about the Tow Show each year. Please check this list first to see if your question(s) is answered. If not, call our Madison office at 608-827-5783 or send an e-mail to email@example.com
If I just want to walk around the convention grounds and talk to vendors, do I have to register for the Tow Show?
No. Registration is only for meals or if you’re going to be a Vendor or Sponsor. There is no need to register for anything other than that.
When is the deadline for registration?
Generally speaking, we would like to have everyone registered no later than Friday, June 11th so we can let the hotel know how much food to prepare. You can register and pay the day of the Show at the Registration area. However, it is possible that tickets for the Saturday cookout and Saturday banquet may be sold out.
Can children attend the Tow Show?
Absolutely! We have special pricing for children’s meals and offer a free Kids Party on Saturday evening. However, we do like to limit the party to no more than 25 kids, as we are limited on chaperones for the party.
There is no charge for kids under the age of 5, however that does not include the Saturday afternoon cookout.
Is there a cost to attend the Women’s Towing forum on Friday evening?
No. But if you could indicate your attendance on the Registration form, we would appreciate it.
Is there a cost for the towing and recovery forum on Saturday?
No. The Professional Tow Talk Seminar will be held on Saturday morning in the Laguna Vista Room of the hotel. Just show up!
Is there a cost for the Ladies Lunch?
No, but please let us know in advance if you are attending. We do like to keep this luncheon at a limit of about 50 people.
I’m a Vendor/Exhibitor at the Tow Show. When can I start setting up?
Usually Friday in the early afternoon, unless there are special circumstances.
Where do I pick up our meal tickets and other items for the Tow Show?
There will be a large trailer in the parking lot, just to your left as you drive into the Chula Vista Resort. All materials for your registration, including meal tickets, wristbands, name badges, programs, t-shirts (if ordered) and the WTA Silent Auction will be in the trailer.
Do I have to register my truck for the Friday night light show?
No. Just bring your truck and turn your lights on around 9:30 p.m. Please shut everything off by 10:00 p.m. and no horn honking after 10:00 p.m.
Where do I park my truck?
When you enter the Chula Vista Resort, there will be WTA officials there to help with parking.
Will there be WTA shirts for sale at the Show?
Unfortunately, no. It’s simply too difficult to determine the amount and sizes to order. However, shirts may be available for order on-line after the Show has ended.
I have some items I’d like to donate to the WTA Silent Auction. Where should I drop them off?
The Registration trailer in the parking lot.
How will the proceeds from the Silent Auction be used?
100% of the proceeds from the WTA Silent Auction will be donated to the the International Towing Museum, including the Survivor’s Fund, Wall of Fallen, and Scholarship Fund.
