UMA shifts dates for 2021 Motorcoach EXPO to April 21-25, based on strong member feedback
The United Motorcoach Association announced today that UMA Motorcoach EXPO in the city of Orlando, FL will be held April 21-25, 2021. These new dates, seven weeks later than the original dates, are expected to benefit attendance. Motorcoach EXPO is the largest and most comprehensive tradeshow exclusively serving North America’s bus and motorcoach industry. The date shift, based on strong feedback from members, will enable more participants to have access to vaccines and hopefully many companies will have access to federal relief funding.
Already, registrants from more than 30 U.S. states and Canada and UMA’s trade show floor has more than 70 companies signed up to exhibit. The Orange County Convention Center, which is the host facility is well-positioned to accommodate the show and is designated a Global Biorisk Advisory Council Star Facility.
“These new dates allow seven more weeks for more people to have a chance to become vaccinated and for companies to, hopefully, receive some federal economic relief,” UMA President and CEO Larry Killingsworth said in announcing the change. “I am also happy to report that UMA’s affordable hotel room block prices will remain the same, with family-friendly rates starting at $99 per night.”
Due to the later dates UMA is also extending the deadline for EXPO registration savings until February 5, allowing Members three extra weeks to register and save $100.
