The 2019 tour and travel trade show season kicks off in Louisville, KY at the 2019 American Bus Association Marketplace from Jan. 25-30. Each year more than 3,500 tour operators, suppliers and exhibitors come together for one-on-one business appointments, industry-leading educational seminars and invaluable networking events. It has been said that the ABA Annual Meeting and Marketplace "offers a year's worth of sales meetings in one week." With over 140,000 pre-scheduled appointments and over 800 qualified tour operators, the ABA Marketplace is an exceptional trade show for tour suppliers to attend.
Destination Gettysburg will be sending two representatives to the trade show, allowing the opportunity to meet with over 100 qualified tour operators interested in bringing new business to Adams County. In addition, representatives from 13 local businesses will also be in attendance to promote their group-friendly experiences at the show. The state of Pennsylvania will have approximately 110 representatives at the 2019 ABA Marketplace.

The Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association Southern Chapter met last week at The Lodges at Gettysburg. Concluding the special meeting about PA Liquor Control Board updates, the networking session featured a sample of the Adams County Pour Tour.
Select Pour Tour participants set up tasting stations around the room and meeting attendees got the opportunity to sample the craft beverages, meet with some of the beverage makers and get a taste of the Pour Tour experience.
