Two Trusted Events Join Forces Creating A Ground Transportation Powerhouse

BusCon and LCT East will be combining to create America's Bus & Coach Expo (ABCExpo) to be hosted in Philadelphia, PA - November 15-17, 2020. This new event will provide a much-needed full-spectrum approach for operators and suppliers in the luxury, coach, public transit, shuttle, tour and charter markets.

This long-planned unification of these two great events will give those serving in the previously-mentioned markets more chances to do business under one roof - will less overall expense. The decision is also very much in line with the recent establishment of the Global Ground Transportation Institute's (GGTI) goals of helping the industry thrive in education and business development during current and future challenges. GGTI will be fully supporting the event alongside the respected editorial brands of METRO Magazine, LCT Magazine and School Bus Fleet Magazine.


Content will still be king

Don't worry about the quality of the program. This will still be a laser-focused education experience for our different attendee types with completely unique content streams designed to impact and improve their specific business operations. These journeys will then converge on our colossal exhibition floor.

Exhibition at scale

In the past, these two great events already boasted sizable floor plans on their own. 2020 will prove to be even larger and organized strategically with zones - for all attendee types to easily navigate and find what they're looking for. Look for the great brands you trust, as well as many new faces and companies that are changing the industry.

Why Philly?

Philadelphia will provide a quick fly-in access point for many attendees and will be just hours away to a wide-array of high-concentration areas for the industry. We're very excited to reinvigorate the market while providing operators and suppliers with an affordable alternative to attend - not one - but two amazing events with ABCExpo!
