Truly a surf and turf paradise that offers fantastic live entertainment, theatres, eco-tours, culinary tours, 1700 restaurants and world class shopping. Whew! Learn how to pronounce Charlotte and then the "Two Sandys" provide a crash course on what exactly goes on at the annual ABA Marketplace. Great stuff!

Hey,  Mercedes Boy!

Meet Patrick Scully who has some of the coolest land yachts we've ever seen. Not your gull-wing roadster, but with huge street appeal everywhere, the Setra motorcoach by Mercedes sets the bar very high among global coach manufacturers. All we can say is WOW, we want one!

These babies can cruise groups up to 50 from point to point in the luxury of a Gulfstream, only bigger! And, did you know that motorcoaches are the safest and greenest vehicle per passenger mile in the world?!

Now here is an interesting story about a 20 year old association of over 30,000 volunteer group travel planners around the US. These folks represent millions of travelers who love group travel, especially when it involves motorcoaches. You'll also learn why these folks are so passionately enthusiastic about the ABA's Top 100 Events.

llusionist Dave Hamner and
Comedian Jim Barber from the
Hamner Barber Theater
in Branson Missouri
 

For pure wholesome entertainment, it's hard to top Branson, Missouri. When personality meets talent meets fun, you'll definitely find Branson performers and theater owners Dave Hamner and and Jim Barber. With puzzling and unbelievable magic acts and comedy laughs for all, these guys guarantee a good time every time!

Back to Top

BRANSON Missouri - Every year this small but mighty destination in the heart of America, shows off world class entertainment at the ABA Marketplace. Sandy spends a few minutes with some very talented folks!

Later, Comedian Bob Nelson, horns in on Dave and Jim's act (just kidding!). Bob is truly a crackup guy. He's kinda of a mix between Rodney Dangerfield and Robin Williams and he's more fun than a  NY pizza and beer at a Jets game (OK, back in the day!).
Nutty characters, super keen NYC wit and comic faces are his specialties. Bob has performed on Broadway and from Carnegie Hall and Radio City to Las Vegas. Don't miss his show at the Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson

What can we say? The undisputed king of the motorcoach industry, Pete Pantuso, joins Sandy to celebrate the 2009 Marketplace. As ABA President, Pete has some great insight into why, for so many, many reasons, the Motorcoach Era is truly upon us. 

You'll also hear about one of most entertaining acts of the 2009 Marketplace: Marilyn Monroe's special appearance at the Branson-sponsored all delegate luncheon to sing My Heart Belongs to Peety! Don't miss this one!
