Bus Buyers - Join BusCon Connect And Make New Connections!
What is BusCon Connect?
BusCon Connect is a program taking place at BusCon designed to connect public and private bus operators with vehicle, product and technology solution providers in various settings that promote relationship building – including one-on-one meetings (speed-networking) and an exclusive networking function.
What Are the Benefits Of Participating?
Do you find it difficult to keep up to date with all the latest technology; do you find it difficult to get quality time with exhibitors at trade shows; do you have to justify your visit with a supervisor? Let us take the burden away. BusCon will provide you with your own personal schedule, matching your procurement needs with the best suppliers in the industry. We will ensure that you maximize your time at the show, make new connections and find solutions to your needs.
Tell Me More About Who I Will Meet.
You'll be able to select to meet with select BusCon’s exhibiting companies in categories that include: vehicle manufacturers, technology, video surveillance, bus components, HVAC, mobility/special needs, training, alternative fuels and more.
How Does It Work?
We will match up the participating buyers and exhibitors for one-on-one meetings based upon corresponding needs. Each buyer will be provided with a personalized meeting schedule along with detailed information about the exhibitor you will meet. Exhibitors will have received information about you in advance so they will be able to prepare for a discussion tailored to your specific needs.
Where & When Does It Take Place?
The meetings will take place at the Indiana Convention Center on Monday, September 23 from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm, followed by the BusCon Welcome Reception from 5:30 pm -7:30 pm. Please note that the exhibit hall opens on Tuesday, September 24.
How Much Does It Cost to Participate?
Nothing! BusCon Connect is free to all qualifying operators. It is open to both full conference delegates and exhibit hall only attendees. We’ll even cover the cost of the Welcome Reception. Your only commitment is to ensure that you attend the meetings on your schedule.
How Can I Participate?
The first step for all prospective buyers is to fill out the brief online application that asks for information about your fleet and planned purchases coming up in the next 12 months. Your application will be reviewed and you will receive notification on whether you have been accepted within three weeks of submission.
