Every January, ABA welcomes the travel and tourism community to the first conference of the year—the industry’s premier business event—ABA’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace. More than 3,500 tour operators, suppliers and exhibitors come together to kick off a new year of business opportunity and growth. ABA’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace is truly a market-place—an active, vibrant forum of buyers and sellers where business gets done. With more than 140,000 pre-scheduled appointments and 800 pre-qualified operators, Marketplace offers a year’s worth of sales meetings in one week.
