Escot hosts GPN meeting
LARGO – The Global Passenger Network Association met March 17-18 at the central facilities of the Escot Bus Lines, Largo. Global Passenger Network is an association of the best motor coach companies in the world promoting the use of motor coach service through the joint efforts of member companies and various alliances in the major markets throughout the world. GPN started in 2006 building on an existing alliance involving the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Italy and has expanded to 30 countries teaming together its resources with a focus on best practices, technology, marketing and business development.

Key members of the alliance meet in the spring and fall of each year. This year, Escot Bus Lines hosted the meeting at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater. During this meeting, GPN members from the United States and Canada were joined by members from France, Germany, Turkey, Denmark, Russia, Spain, Belgium along with other European representatives.

The meeting opened Sunday evening with a reception hosted by the Clearwater Convention and Visitors Bureau. On Monday and Tuesday, according to Scott, the work began “with attention to international marketing, technology and the sharing of business opportunities.” Further areas of discussion focused on changes to the bylaws, which will further define the GPN strategy as they continue to grow and expand its countries members.
