Held Jan. 13–16 at Music City Center, Marketplace saw more operators taking business appointments than ever before (with over 300 operators on the business floor), more than 1,000 motorcoach and tour operators under one roof, nearly 3,000 attendees from every part of North America and overseas, and the most sponsors ever at more than 120.
