ABA Marketplace Heads to the Lone Star State
January 25, 2022
Out in force! More than 1,600 operators, sponsors, and vendors attended the American Bus Association (ABA) Marketplace, which was held this past January 8-11 at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. According to the association, the in-person networking and educational meeting was a triumphant return to live events for the industry, especially after the difficult two years motorcoach operators have faced. ABA says this was their largest event since January 2020.
“It was time for the industry to get back to business and we wanted to ensure we did that in the safest way possible,” said ABA President & CEO Peter Pantuso. “We instituted COVID protocols for all attendees with a mask mandate and requiring vaccine or negative COVID test verification to attend. The 1600+ attendees who attended were in high spirits and it was great to be able to give our members the opportunity to reconnect and kick off their business year with positive outcomes.”
