Prevost Vice President and General Manager, Francois Tremblay, was invited to welcome attendees during the opening session where he spoke to the merits of owning and operating motorcoaches in the limousine business.
Celebrating its 35th year in 2019, the LCT Show is a global event that stands as the largest convention in the world for the luxury charter transportation industry. Operators worldwide attended for the exciting new-product showcases, industry overviews, educational presentations, and invaluable networking opportunities.
“Prevost is very proud to support the LCT Show, “Tremblay said. “This convention is filled with tremendous opportunities in which we can help limousine businesses explore the many ways motorcoaches can expand and create new business.”
Tremblay cited the potential of motorcoaches to attract and accommodate larger groups, specialized tours, and customers accustomed to premium-tier transport such as professional sports teams.
“Adding motorcoaches to a fleet opens doors to these larger markets,” says Tremblay. “These opportunities may include large concert venues, major sporting events, and specialized tourism and business functions.”
Tremblay emphasized the benefits limousine operators can enjoy as members of the Prevost family with access to the largest service network in the motorcoach industry as well as scheduled maintenance programs and service contracts that ensure consistent practices, predictable costs, and assistance at every step to keep the coaches running. He alerted limo operators to the sixteen (16) Prevost Service Center network in strategic locations across the U.S. and Canada with more locations coming in 2019.
Continuing its tradition of delivering the “Ultimate Experience”, Prevost exhibited the 2019 H3-45 and Volvo 9700 at this year’s event – both outfitted and equipped with components and distinctive new features to interest the limousine sector. Prevost also offered an exclusive walk-away lease program during the show.
