After a two-year in-person break, trade shows are back! Anjuli King, group tour & entertainment manager, traveled to Grapevine, Texas, to attend the American Bus Association (ABA) Marketplace 2022. Over the course of four days, Anjuli reconnected with multiple operators and even hosted a few for the Georgia vs. Alabama game Monday night. With over 1,800 attendees and the opportunity to meet up to 54 tour operators for scheduled one-on-one appointments, Anjuli met with 48 operators. The ABA Marketplace is the first conference of the year for the motorcoach and tourism community to turn conversations into real long-term business relationships across all stakeholders in the motorcoach industry. Next year, this annual conference will head to the birthplace of Motown – Detroit, Michigan.
