On Sept. 28 to 30, 2015 in the Indiana Convention Center of Indianapolis, thousands of bus industry professionals will converge for the biggest bus convention in North America. Each year, more and more people look forward to BusCon as a chance to network, learn about new trends and technology, and gain the tools that are necessary to revitalize the way they tackle their own operations.

BusCon offers educational sessions that are specifically geared towards public transit, tours and charter, limousine and courtesy shuttles.

Session topics include: the utilization of social media to grow your following and engage your audience, building team skills to have an efficient transportation system, prevention of costly incidents and limiting your risk and liability, incorporation of alternative fuels and innovations that have had a positive impact at operations nationally.

Mark Aesch, CEO of TransPro, a management consultancy that guides transit systems, will be delivering the Keynote Address on Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 11:00am to 12:00pm. His presentation on “Driving Excellence” will provide both inspiration and information on how to reform cultures, motivate teams to be more efficient and turn customer service to customer satisfaction.

The exhibit hall will be open Tuesday, 12:00pm to 5:00pm and Wednesday, 10:00am to 2:00pm. Attendees will be able to see a display of more than 60 buses of all shapes and sizes, as well as the latest technology from manufacturers.

The BusCon Ride & Drive will also give attendees the chance to experience new vehicles, connect through activities like the BusCon Night on the Town at Slippery Noodle Inn and participate in the awards ceremony.

The pre-registration deadline for BusCon is August 28, 2015. Those who register by August 28 can take advantage of a free exhibits only pass or discounted full conference pass. For more information, click here.
