Helpful tips & info for Sales Summit attendees

We're glad you will be attending the industry's newest training event, the Bus & Motorcoach Industry Sales Summit. It was designed specifically for our industry's sales professionals with the goal of creating a high-value professional development opportunity.
Remember, our event hashtags are #SellMoreTours , #SellMoreCharters , and of course, #IamUMA , so please use these when you post memorable quotes, photos, and your impressions throughout the event. And please tag us at @umadrives .

The weather forecast calls for temperatures in the 50s and 60s for the most part, and despite calls for rain, we'll be able to move between the hotel and the Mall of America without going outdoors.

Business casual is the suggested dress for this event.

Please join us on Tuesday evening in the FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar at the Radisson Blu for a welcome reception from 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

You can link to the agenda, here. A printed schedule will be provided on site at registration.

Below are tips we hope will ease your arrival. We look forward to seeing you!

Please note we'll be having registration in the Radisson Blu on the second floor on Tuesday. After that we'll be at the Mall of America.

Welcome to Marketplace 2.0! Buyers all over the world are evolving and changing, and are particularly different than they were just a few years ago. In fact, there’s been more disruption in the buyer mindset in the past five years than in the past 100! We’ve all changed how we behave, how we prefer companies market to us, and how/when/where we make our buying decisions. Every industry is poised to go through some level of disruption in the immediate future. How can you prepare your sales funnel for what’s coming? What tools do you need to be proactive, rather than reactive?
