PBA has held a Marketplace event for over two decades to put our travel supplier members directly in touch with our bus operator group leaders…..the core of their business. This event features exciting exhibits by various destinations, convention and visitor bureaus, museums, casino companies, etc. arranged by region in a large exhibit hall.

PBA coordinates an arrival schedule for our motorcoach operators who bring in excess of 1,000 group leaders looking to find fun and exciting places to travel. Motorcoach operator tour planners are also available to speak one-on-one.

All in all, this event has refined itself to meet everyone’s traveling needs!
