GlobalFest 2013: One of ABA's Top 100 Events in North America
GlobalFest 2013 Selected as One of the American Bus Association’s Top 100 Events in North America
GlobalFest is proud to announce that it has once again been selected as one of the American Bus Association’s Top 100 Events in North America for 2013. What began as a way for motorcoach operators to incorporate new product into their itineraries has grown to become one of the most sought-after lists by travel professionals, motorcoach operators, and the general public. GlobalFest has the honor of making the exclusive list for their third time in their 10-year history with 2009 and 2011 marking their first and second occasion respectively.
Now in its 31st year, the 2013 Top 100 Events in North America is published as a guide for travel professionals and the general public to use when planning group tours and vacations.
Each spring, the Top 100 selection committee, which is comprised of travel professionals, selects the winners from among hundreds of nominated fairs, festivals, parades, exhibits, theaters and shows based on their broad appeal, accessibility to large groups arriving by motorcoach, and other criteria.
Although ABA does not rank the events, it does give special recognition to “Annual Events.” Annual Events receive separate recognition because they have been consistently selected as a Top 100 Event in North America, continually attract group and motorcoach business, and offer international appeal.
“On behalf of the entire American Bus Association, I would like to congratulate all of those involved in the events selected for the 2013 Top 100 Events in North America,” said ABA President and CEO Peter Pantuso.
ABA is proud to select GlobalFest as one of their top events in Canada. Pantuso continued, “The events included in the 2013 Top 100 represent the best of the diverse array of group travel attractions available to motorcoach groups throughout the continent.”
The 2013 Top 100 Events in North America was published as a special supplement to the September/October issue of Destinations magazine. You can also find a full listing of the winners at http://www.buses.org/News-Publications/Top-100.
