We’re Taking The LCT Show To The Empire Of the Industry!

Posted on June 1, 1998 by Sara Eastwood-McLean - Also by this author

It doesn’t seem as though the dust has settled from the March LCT Show in Las Vegas and we’re already getting calls and letters from operators around the world wanting to mark their calendars for next year’s event! As most of you know, since we consolidated our east and west shows, the annual Limousine & Chauffeured Transportation Show has rotated from coast to coast every year. This is important to all of us. We don’t want to stagnate the show by holding it in the same city each year. Also, the rotation is fair to suppliers (less expensive when local) and helps LCT serve its two top industry markets.

Since its inception, the show’s main East Coast destination has been Atlantic City. However, after 15 years, we felt we needed to take the show to the next level. Most of you have told us that you wanted a change in venue, as well. So, we formed our first formal show committee and presented it with three options for our 1999 show. The group voted at the end of May, and now we’re pleased to share with you our decision for the new location of next year’s LCT Show.

We’re going to NEW YORK CITY, March 11-13, 1999!

I’d like to acknowledge our first-ever trade show committee:
