Flower Show Among “100 Best Events for 2010”


ABAThe American Bus Association, which represents nearly 1,000 motorcoach and tour companies in the United States and Canada, has announced that the 2010 Philadelphia International Flower Show has been designated as one of the “Top 100 Events in North America for 2010.”

“The attractiveness of the Philadelphia International Flower Show as a don’t-miss entertainment value is only part of why its selection is such a distinction,” said Peter J. Pantuso, ABA’s president and CEO. “The real news here is that the Flower Show has been recognized as a potential magnet for tourism dollars at a time when reenergizing domestic tourism is so important to our spirit and our economy.”

The Flower Show attracts more than 250,000 visitors, who generate an overall impact of $30 million for restaurants, hotels, shops, businesses, and cultural attractions in and around Philadelphia. Proceeds of the Show, which is produced by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, support Philadelphia Green, PHS’ award-winning urban revitalization program.

The ABA events selection committee chose the Flower Show from among hundreds of U.S. and Canadian events nominated by state and provincial tourism offices and convention and visitors bureaus.
