OTD Attends PBA and MMA Marketplaces
The Pennsylvania Bus Association (PBA) and the Maryland Motorcoach Association (MMA) hosted their 2018 Marketplaces back-to-back, at the York Fairgrounds in York, PA. The PBA Marketplace offered the opportunity to meet with 800 group leaders from 22 motorcoach carriers from throughout Pennsylvania. MMA’s one-day event afforded 350 group leaders – from senior centers, social clubs and recreational associations – an opportunity to meet agents from destinations, hotels and attractions. This year’s event featured 128 vendor tables representing nearly 200 companies, from Maine to Georgia.
Eleven motorcoach operators brought their best group leader clients to York. Also attending were a number of individual tour operators from Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Northern Virginia; along with representatives from National Tour Association, Student Youth & Travel Association, and American Bus Association’s Destinations magazine.
