“The School Bus Exchange is time well spent for those in the school bus industry.”

-Tom Burr, Director of Transportation, St. Paul Public Transportation, St. Paul, MN

“School Bus eXchange has no borders! The networking, the roundtable exercises, the one-on-one interaction with vendors and industry peers delivered a unique opportunity to learn and grow. “

-Harry B. Davis, Director of Transportation, High Prairie School Division No. 48, High Prairie, Alberta, Canada

“SBX was an excellent opportunity to visit personally with vendors and other transportation attendees. What an improvement on the normal trade show. I highly recommend this event.”

-Gary Greenhill, Director of Transportation, Union Public Schools, Tulsa, OK

“SBX provides a valuable opportunity to connect with decision makers in a relaxed yet business-focused format.”

-David McDonald, Director of Business Development, Roscoe Vision Systems. Inc, Jamaica, NY

“The School Bus eXchange was great. As a vendor, I want my company to make your job easier and save you time, so that you can focus on other things to make sure our children are being transported safely!”

-Joseph Murphy, Account Executive, Safety Vision, Houston, TX

“Very pleased with the quality and organization of this event. It gave me the opportunity to meet vendors in a short, informative atmosphere that I may not have previously considered. Well done!”

-Jill Gayaldo, Director, Elk Grove Unified, Sacramento, CA

“This program gave me the opportunity to discuss with vendors and other district operators the new ideas and products that are being introduced for school buses and operations. Safety is always first and foremost.”

-Glenn Gorton, State Director of Student Transportation, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia, WA

“School Bus eXchange was an awesome event! Spending two and a half days with vendors gave us the uninterrupted time we needed to get to know them personally, and the proper time to review the products.”

-Toney Blackmon, Director of Business and Transportation Services, DeKalb County School District, Tucker, GA

“Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend SBX. I find it to be an exceptional learning and sharing experience. I will suggest the opportunity to everyone I know in the industry.”

-David Wilson, Transportation Director, Wentzville School District, Wentzville, MO

“Excellent venue, great way to meet the fleets. Most admit they would have never spent the time at a state show. Great eXchange.”

-Steve Barker, Sales Manager, AMF Bruns of America, Hudson, OH

“It was a great experience getting to network with other transportation professionals as well as with vendors. The one-on-one sessions allows more time with a censor to explain their products.”

-Jimmy Lacy, Supervisor of Transportation Safety & Training, Kanawha County Schools, Charleston, WV
