Boston—The Taxi, Limousine, and Paratransit Association held its 95th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Boston from October 27-31.

The event accommodated over 900 attendees, 27 educational sessions, and a trade show floor featuring 106 vendors. Sessions covered topics like marketing and technology. Throughout the event, however, there seemed to be a particularly strong emphasis on rogue apps.

"Year in and year out, TLPA does an amazing job of juggling and keeping all the balls in the air," noted TLPA President Bill Rouse in his State of the Industry speech. "This past year has been no exception, but this year has been more challenging. One issue, apps, has been almost all-consuming, so it seems right to start there."

The association announced its 2013 Limousine and Sedan Operator and Chauffuer of the Year awards to operator Barry Beall of First Class Executive Limo and chauffeur Richard Stockwel of Transport the People. Congratulations to both!

TLPA also used the show to hold elections for its 2014 Board of Directors, newly headed by:
  • President: Robert Werth of Diamond Transportation Services
    President-Elect: Michael Fogarty of Tristar Worldwide
    Treasurer: Michael Levine of Yellow Group
    Chief Executive Officer: Alfred LaGasse
