PA Product Showcase 

Every other year, PPTA alternates its full Expo with a Table Top Vendor Networking Event. This year's tabletop is known as out PA Products Showcase. Vehicles and other large items are not able to fit in the tabletop area for 2023. The price of the registration reflects the smaller working area. This setup provides a concentrated opportunity to network and interact with PA transit agencies on the first afternoon of the conference. PPTA business members and industry reps are encouraged to register for the conference in addition to the tabletop, which is reflected in our package pricing opportunities.
