ABA taps St. Louis for 2015 Marketplace

Posted on September 27, 2012

The American Bus Association (ABA) selected St. Louis to host its Marketplace 2015, Jan. 10 to 13, 2015, at the America's Center Convention Complex. ABA’s 37th annual gathering will mark the first time St. Louis has hosted this prestigious event.

"The American Bus Association is always thrilled when we can hold Marketplace in a destination as diverse as our attendees,” said ABA President/CEO Peter J. Pantuso, CTIS. “St. Louis was selected after an exhaustive bid process where several cities submitted proposals to host ABA's Marketplace. The number of hotels in close proximity to the convention center and the world-class America’s Center, where Marketplace will actually take place, helped St. Louis end up on top.”

More than 3,000 attendees are estimated to attend Marketplace 2015. Marketplace is the show where business gets done, generating nearly $80 million dollars for the delegates, suppliers and host city in 2012.
