ABA Convention Returning to Louisville in 2019


The American Bus Association (ABA) has announced a return to Louisville, Kentucky, for its 2019 convention.

The dates of the 2019 Marketplace will be Jan. 26-29.

“We look forward to bringing our ABA Annual Meeting and Marketplace to Louisville in 2019,” said ABA president and CEO Peter Pantuso. “Our members were wowed by the hospitality, quality attractions and culinary delights of Louisville when we visited this year and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in 2019.”

As the American Bus Association’s annual Marketplace is the first motorcoach, travel and tourism show of each year, experts say based on the amount of business written and the number of people attending, it’s always a “must attend” event. In 2016, Marketplace welcomed more than 3,400 tour operators, suppliers and exhibitors and generated approximately US$100 million in booked business at the event or immediately afterward.
