LEXINGTON, Ky; ALEXANDRIA, Va. – NTA and the United Motorcoach Association announce that the organizations will hold their first co-located convention in Orlando, Florida, January 19-23, 2013. This Show of Shows will be held at the Orange County Convention Center.

"We are very excited for this opportunity," said Victor Parra, UMA president and CEO. "We think Orlando is the perfect venue for inaugurating what will singularly be the largest and most important industry event."

"We’re thrilled we’ve been able to work so quickly to make this a reality. Financial and time resources are so valuable these days, and bringing our events together will bring more business to our members for less time and money."
