BusCon Spurs Record Turnout

Posted on September 30, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

TORRANCE, CA — With trade shows in nearly every field suffering, BusCon 2009 had close to 2,200 attendees, a 12% increase compared to last year, and a record for the event now in its 14th year.

BusCon, produced by Metro Magazine and its parent company Bobit Business Media, was held at Navy Pier in Chicago. It featured 59 vehicles on display along with an array of various suppliers of components and services for bus operators. A total of 140 companies exhibited at the event held Sept. 14-16.

“BusCon has become the industry event by which all bus shows will be measured,” said Ty Bobit, founder of BusCon and CEO of Bobit. “It brings people together from every segment of the industry — public transit, tour and charter, as well as segments that use buses to transport their customers. It’s unique and offers so much to see and learn. New technology abounds!”

Several new bus models were introduced at the show including the Glaval EnTourage, a 35-passenger cutaway; the 43-passenger Goshen Wolverine; and a front-engine bus with European styling built by Galaxy. In addition, there were 13 education sessions including “Pre-Delivery Inspection Guidelines for New Buses” and “Choosing Transportation Technology Based on What You Need…Not What It Can Do.”

BusCon 2010 is scheduled for Sept. 29-30, 2010 at Navy Pier in Chicago.

Bobit Business Media also owns Limousine, Charter & Tour Magazine and coordinates the annual International LCT Show and LCT Eastern Conference — the predominant global trade shows for the chauffeured transportation and charter and tour industries. LCT East will be held Oct. 7-8 at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Uncasville, Conn., and the International LCT Show in Las Vegas on Jan. 25-27, 2010.
