Towmaster's Truck and Trailer Education Expo on July 10 drew more than 500 people from all over the state of Minnesota. Departments of Transportation, municipal, county and township workers attended to see new equipment, plow trucks and trailers; visit with vendors; take factory tours; and attend education sessions prior to being served a lunch.

More than 30 vendors attended the show, displaying their latest and most popular products. New tech from industries in cameras, plows, hydraulics, plastics, lighting and more were shown to the people who use them in their line of work nearly every day.

The weather didn't cooperate, but it didn't seem to deter the people who really wanted to stay on top of new technology. With a short rain delay, vendors had a chance to talk one-on-one with people and get feedback on what is working and what they'd like to see improved.

Towmaster's crew put on quite a show, and they even did Facebook Live videos of the event and interviews with the vendors, which can be found on the company Facebook page.

Towmaster's Expo happens every two years and is well-liked by the vendors and well-attended by industry professionals.
