We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby! LCT Shows in 11th Year

Posted on November 1, 1994 by Sara Eastwood

Now in its eleventh year, the LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show returns to its birthplace - Atlantic City, NJ.  Back in the early ‘80s the thought of bringing our subscribers and an advertiser together under one roof was only a dream.  That dream became a reality when 1,100 limousine operators turned out for the first-ever limousine trade show in 1984.

In those early days the show was coordinated single-handedly by the president of our company.  Registrations were processed by his wife and his father!

More than a decade later, things have changed dramatically.  It now takes a professional trade show team working five days a week, 12 months a year to organize and execute the details of this annual event.

Maturity doesn’t happen over night.  The LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show has grown up with you.  We’ve survived all the market changes and trends as well as the economy’s highs and lows.  As many of you can attest, it’s been quite a wild ride!  The livery industry has truly evolved.  It has taken research, experience, and dedication by many of you to get to where we are now.

Today, the LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show is endorsed by the National Limousine Association-the largest organization of limousine operators in the world.  The show is also supported exclusively by Cadillac and Lincoln-Mercury.

The LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show of the 90s boasts over 75 new vehicles, hundreds of supplies and services, dozens of workshops round tables, and keynotes, a pre-owned limousine auction, spouse programs, theme parties, and awards banquet honoring the top operators in the country.  Thousands of limousine companies of all sizes make this annual event a must on their agenda.

There are so many opportunities available at the show.  If you are looking to purchase a limousine, you can make comparisons with every certified builder in the country.  If you are a startup company, numerous workshops are structured specifically for you.  If you are a veteran operator, there are workshops at your level as well.

We at LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show have a vested interest in your future.  Your success is our measuring stick to how well we are doing our job.

The objective for launching the show was to promote an exchange of information – to propel the industry to a new professional level through face-to-face interaction.  Looking back over the past decade, I think you will agree we’ve accomplished that objective.

We ask that you continue to be proactive and take advantage of the opportunities we’ve made available to you.  Come to Atlantic City in January and participate in the LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show.  You won’t regret it.

The LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Show may have more modern face, but our philosophies and goals remain the same.  We plan to continue our course of providing cutting-edge information to the industry through the pages of LIMOUSINE & CHAUFFEUR Magazine as well as creating an interactive environment through the trade shows so your business will prosper and we can grow old together.

See you in January!
