TORRANCE, Calif. — In another sign of growing and diverse industry fleets, the 2013 International LCT Show will host a first-ever bus operation and management clinic that includes three major topics and 10 distinct sessions.

The American Bus Association, the leading trade group for the U.S. charter and tour bus industry, is sponsoring the bus clinic and participating in its development. The three key topics being offered consecutively during the Feb. 5-7, 2013 Show schedule at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas are: Tour Bus Safety Program, Tour Bus Marketing, and Bus Technology Symposium.

Details on sub-topics and schedules can be found at the new 2013 International LCT Show website.

The Bus Clinic takes shape at a time when motorcoach buses are gaining share in the ground transportation market, whether run by traditional charter and tour bus operators or chauffeured transportation operators expanding into bus service. These seminars will offer the quality and expertise that appeal to both groups.

“In 2009 we repositioned LCT Magazine to include the charter and tour industry,” said LCT Publisher & Show Chair Sara Eastwood-McLean. “In keeping with that commitment, we are excited to announce a new and exclusive strategic alliance with the American Bus Association (ABA) which will host the BUS CLINIC at our 2013 International Limousine, Charter & Tour Show, coming to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Feb. 5-7. The program is fantastic and is sure to enhance an already superb conference program which the National Limousine Association organizes.”

More details to come as the Show is less than five months away.
