Jan.9th, UAP Media was invited to ABA Marketplace—the industry’s premier business event—which more than 3,500 tour operators, suppliers and exhibitors come together to kick off a new year of business opportunity and growth.
UAP Media completed over 175 meetings and met many talented travel industry professionals. The conversation with ABA CEO Pete Pantuso was fruitful.
Marketplace is truly a market-place—an active, vibrant forum of buyers and sellers where business gets done. With more than 140,000 pre-scheduled appointments and 800 pre-qualified operators, Marketplace offers a year’s worth of sales meetings in one week. And with legendary networking and social events, attendees turn conversations from the conference floor into long-term business relationships. Couple this with leading education seminars and the industry’s largest exhibit hall, and Marketplace is really unmatched as the best industry event each year. More than a meeting, Marketplace is a valuable investment that pays for itself many times over, and a can’t-miss annual reunion with colleagues and friends, old and new.
