ABA Staff And Hundreds Of Members
‘Motor’ To 2004 Marketplace By ‘Coach’

Washington, DC – January 2004 – Someone once said the way to get to Carnegie Hall was practice, practice, practice. For the staff of the American Bus Association, the way to Carnegie Hall and the rest of New York City, and all the other destinations in the state is motorcoach, motorcoach, motorcoach.

As part of an effort to promote the benefits of motorcoach travel, ABA President and CEO, Peter J. Pantuso, along with ABA staff will take a motorcoach from Washington, DC, to New York City for the 2004 American Bus Marketplace. And thanks to the generosity of ABA member New World Tours, Dattco and others, hundreds of ABA delegates to Marketplace will also journey to New York City by motorcoach.

Pantuso explained, “Arriving in New York by motorcoach is the most efficient, convenient and affordable way to travel. Unlike the rail or airlines, motorcoaches can provide door-to-door service in addition to scheduled service stops in the heart of New York City. In addition, motorcoach travel is more affordable than rail or air travel.”

The American Bus Marketplace is a unique event that pairs together hundreds of bus and tour operators with thousands of sellers of travel representatives from destinations, attractions, hotels and restaurants. In a series of 7-minute ‘speed dating’ sessions, the business meetings generate millions of dollars in future group travel business.

“We are so excited to be going to New York. Both the city and state are the most popular tourist area in the country and we’re proud to be bringing the group travel community to the city and state to see all it has to offer. This is going to be a fantastic Marketplace.” Pantuso said.

The 2004 American Bus Marketplace takes place Jan. 16 - 21 at the Jacob Javits Center. For more information on the event, visit www.buses.org.
