ABA Show
Delivers

A

just-released economic
survey of delegates
attending ABA’s 2013
Marketplace in Charlotte
shows that, once again, ABA’s
Marketplace is unmatched as the
industry travel and trade show where
business gets done.
The report by New York economic
consulting firm John Dunham
and Associates shows that Marketplace generated $108.3 million
in booked and future business for
show participants.
That $108.3 million figure represents a $30 million increase
from 2012 to 2013, or a 28 percent
growth over the total amount of
business generated at Marketplace
2012 in Grapevine, Texas, where the
figure was $78.7 million.
Five categories of Marketplace
attendees—receptive operators,
lodging representatives, destination
marketing organizations (DMOs), attractions, and associates—were surveyed. Respondents were asked for
the amount of business generated
in three categories: business booked
at Marketplace, business booked
following Marketplace, and the total
amount of business that respondents
expected to generate from Marketplace contacts. The survey sample is
statistically significant to within
+/- 3.3 percent.
The results of the survey showed
that attendees across all member
types had an enormous amount of
success at ABA’s Marketplace 2013.
The average business booked per
firm due to Marketplace in 2013 is
$78,440.
