This year, the RDA Federation and RDA-Workshop Touristik-Service GmbH were present at Busworld in Kortrijk/Belgium with an own stand. RDA members and other interested parties were able to engage in conversations, to ask questions and to obtain information about the coach tourism industry, current projects of the RDA Federation as well as the RDA Group Travel Expos in Friedrichshafen and Cologne.

Busworld is the largest international trade show for public buses and touring coaches. During the opening on 19th October 2017, the Caredit award ceremony took place. “The ‘Grand Prix européen du tourisme en autocar’ – the most important award for cultural coach tourism – recognises locations or events with high cultural or historical value that are less popular,” says Caredit doyen Luc Glorieux. The award winner 2017 is the Titanic Museum in Belfast. ‘Mister Busworld’ Luc Glorieux and RDA CEO Dieter Gauf presented the award.

EACT – European Alliance for Coach Tourism also held a meeting during Busworld on 24th October. The European federations discussed administrative burdens of coach operators in Europe as well as further member activities. Furthermore, the usage of alternative drives were discussed. Lars Johansson, ACEA Chairman and Director Global Marketing at Volvo Bus Corporation, participated in the meeting and talked about alternative drives.
