Today, the American Bus Association (ABA) – the industry leader advancing North American motorcoach, group travel and tourism – announced Philadelphia as the site of its 2025 ABA’s Marketplace and Busworld North America. The dates of the 2025 Marketplace and Busworld North America will be Jan. 31-Feb. 4, 2025. This will be the first time ABA has been in Philadelphia since 2011.
"We look forward to bringing our ABA’s Marketplace and Busworld North America back to Philadelphia in 2025," said Peter Pantuso, ABA president & CEO. “Our last time there was in 2011, and since then the city has reinvented itself as a booming cultural and culinary destination.”
“We are thrilled Philadelphia has been selected as host city for the 2025 American Bus Association’s Marketplace and Busworld North America,” said Gregg Caren, Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau president & CEO. “We look forward to welcoming back the ABA to our city after 14 years. Our extraordinary Pennsylvania Convention Center, first-rate hotels and thriving culinary scene will demonstrate why Philadelphia is an exceptional convention destination.”
ABA’s Marketplace is the number one group travel show in North America with the greatest ROI for its attendees.
Pantuso noted that Philadelphia has it all when it comes to hosting an event like ABA’s Marketplace, “from the beautiful waterfront with its attractions, to the world-class museums and historic sites, to quaint neighborhoods and restaurants offering every dish imaginable, we are so excited to bring our 3,400-plus members to this city.”
