Come Visit Me @ The Original Limo Show

Posted on October 20, 2015

In 1984, Ty Bobit, president and CEO of Bobit Business Media, owner of LCT Magazine, launched the very first limousine industry trade show in Atlantic City, beginning 31 years of dedication and commitment to the industry. It was bold and daring as the industry really took off in the 1980s without any organization, until that first show and the formation of the National Limousine Association in 1985.

During the next three decades, LCT Magazine would continue to help develop the industry through our trade publication most widely referred to by operators such as myself as, "The Limo Bible." The shows expanded from the East to the West Coast, and in 1999 LCT added its Leadership Summit in Miami Beach.

LCT returned to Atlantic City in 2013 with LCT-NLA Show East, now going into its third round with rising interest and registrations and a new home, Harrah's Atlantic City and its new Waterfront Conference Center

With three decades of putting shows on from coast to coast, we operators have benefited vastly. Coachbuilders have reaped sales and more demand through our mutual connections. The years of experience in the industry has give LCT an edge in promoting best practices and adapting educational programs to current needs, trends and market desires.

I have spent the last 25-years in the business. I continue to learn from every show I attend. I am proud to have been associated with LCT for more than a decade. I do my best to share my experiences with operators to help them gain a competitive edge in their markets.

I will be tending the LCT Booth during exhibit hours and I would love for you to come by and visit with me.
