What is BusCon Connect?
BusCon Connect
 is a program taking place at BusCon designed to connect operator buyers with exhibiting suppliers.  The program facilitates relationship building and includes one-on-one meetings and exclusive networking functions. 

What Are the Benefits of Participating?  
BusCon already attracts a core group of serious buyers, but we take this a step further. We invite and provide scholarships for a select group of VIP buyers to attend BusCon and meet you.  BusCon does all of the heavy lifting involved in searching for these influential contacts – a distinct group of bus and equipment buyers who are ready to make purchases in the next 6-12 months. There is a thorough screening process to ensure each operator is both new to BusCon and a genuine interested buyer.  In exchange for the scholarship, the Operator VIPs agree to participate in 15-minute, private, one-on-one meetings.  We match up the participating Operator and Exhibitor/Sponsor Hosts for these interactions based upon corresponding needs. 

How Does it Work?
BusCon Connect participants will be provided with a meeting schedule along with detailed information about the Operator, such as information about their current fleet and what they are looking to purchase in the near future.  Other elements of the BusCon Connect program include an exclusive breakfast for BusCon Connect participants only, plus access to the group outside of exhibit hall hours.

Tell Me More About the Operator Guests. 
The Operator Guest list will include these types of buyers:

  • Those looking to purchase buses in the next 6-12 months
  • Director-level public transit/paratransit operators
  • Private owners responsible for procurement in
    • Tour & Charter/Chauffeured Transportation
    • Shuttle Services

How Can I Participate?
