Exhibitor Information

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 (speed-networking) and an exclusive networking function. 

What Are the Benefits of Participating?  
BusCon already attracts a core group of serious buyers, but we take this a step further.  BusCon does all the heavy lifting involved in searching for these influential contacts – a distinct group of bus and bus equipment buyers who are ready to make purchases in the next 12 months. There is a thorough screening process to ensure each operator is a genuine interested buyer.  The operator agree to participate in 15-minute, private, one-on-one meetings.  We match up the participating operator with exhibitors for these interactions based upon corresponding needs. 

How Does It Work?
BusCon Connect participants will be provided with a personalized 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.  

Tell Me More About The Operator Participants. 
The operator list will include these types of buyers:
•   Those looking to purchase buses and bus related equipment/services in the next 12 months
•   Senior-level public transit/paratransit operators
•   Private owners responsible for procurement in
      –   Tour & Charter/Chauffeured Transportation
      –   Shuttle Services

Where & When Does It Take Place?
The meetings will take place at the Indiana Convention Center from 2:00 pm – 5:15 pm on Monday, September 23rd, followed by the BusCon Welcome Reception from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm. So it’s a great way to meet potential buyers prior to the exhibit hall opening on Tuesday, September 24th.

How Can I Participate?
BusCon Connect is available to all BusCon sponsors. Exhibitors can also participate for an additional fee.

To inquire about becoming a participant, please contact James Blue at (310) 533-2449.
