UMA seeking education-session leaders for Expo 2018

SAN ANTONIO — Exhibitors at the 2018 UMA Motorcoach Expo in San Antonio are being offered the opportunity to present education sessions in the exhibit hall on January 8 and 9.

The United Motorcoach Association is
accepting proposals from exhibitors wanting to lead an education session on a topic that
would help motorcoach operators be more successful.

UMA officials stress that the sessions
are not sales opportunities but will focus on
assisting members in growing their businesses.

The sessions will be held on the show floor in the UMA presentation area. When possible and meaningful, some sessions will take place in the presenter’s booth.

UMA has offered educational sessions in the exhibit hall for the past five years and is seeking to continue improving those
sessions by offering exhibitors the chance to
create educational experiences on success-oriented topics.

In submitting proposals, companies should include:

  • A summary and outline of the presentation
  • A suggested title for the session
  • Names of planned speakers, along
with their company names, titles and any pertinent information that would qualify them
as experts
  • Time needed to complete the presentation (up to one hour)
  • An explanation of how a proposed topic will
lead to success for motorcoach operators
  • Contact information for the person who will work with UMA staff to coordinate the session

Proposals are due by August 1. The UMA Meetings Committee will review the proposals and select finalists.

The submissions will be judged on
educational value and relevance to 
motorcoach operators’ businesses. Companies selected to present education sessions will be treated as
sponsors of the sessions and will be responsible for paying a $1,500 fee to cover audio-visual and other costs related to the

Questions about the proposals should
be directed to Carrington Blake, UMA meetings manager, at or 703-838-2929.
