National Tour Association Convention 2011 Wrap-up
The BusBank attends many tradeshows and meetings about travel, tourism, bus safety, and we really have to say the saying save the best for last fits this year’s National Tour Association Convention goes down as a favorite.
Over the past 10 years, The BusBank has attended the NTA convention with varying levels of interest. This year’s show was in Las Vegas and was the first time that the NTA headed to the city. Las Vegas trade shows often bring out more attendees than other cities and this was no exception as it was reported the show attendance was up 18% over last year. Perfect timing as it was the National Tour Association’s 60th anniversary.
The show was also a success for The BusBank as our National Sales Director; Andrew Ripani was able to meet many clients and hopefully some future clients. A major portion of his time was spent in pre-set appointments that allows for great face to face time interaction between customers, potential clients and partners. The meeting time was valuable and he met some great people.
Andrew took some photos from around the show at posted on our Facebook page. Feel free to stop on by to check them out. On our Facebook page, you can join our newsletter list to find receive travel news and specials as well. We enjoyed seeing old faces, new faces, meals and not losing any money at the Casino! The BusBank looks forward to our continued membership in the NTA and will be attending more NTA events in 2012!
