The United Motorcoach Association (UMA) and the National Tour Association announced that the organizations will hold their first co-located convention in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 19 to 23, 2013. This "Show of Shows" will be held at the Orange County Convention Center.

"We are very excited for this opportunity," said UMA President/CEO Victor Parra. "We think Orlando is the perfect venue for inaugurating what will singularly be the largest and most important industry event."

The co-located show will bring together 2,000 buyers with thousands of supplier and destination partners. Additionally, the World Religious Travel Association Expo will co-locate with these events, creating maximum ROI from one convention experience, according to the association.
