New Sessions at TransITech Conference
APTA has offered the TransITech Conference over the last decade; its hallmark has been innovative sessions sprinkled with “wiz-bang” technology demos and a robust vendor exhibition. This year’s conference, Feb. 18 to 20 in Toronto, will continue the conference’s trendsetting style, offering three brand new sessions as well as sessions on building a better business case and return on investment; technology as a revenue producer; making the most of existing investment; and creating better communication with customers.
TransITech is an innovator, which is why there will be three sessions brand new to the venue:
* Roll Call of Transits. Each public transit agency registered for the event will have a chance to tell the assembled audience about the projects they have completed in the past year and their plans for both the near future and the long term.
* Technology Projects by Non-Transit Transportation Entities. Airport, highway, and metropolitan planning officials will report on their technology projects, providing ideas and parallels to transit professionals.
* So You Want To Be A CIO. A session focusing on transportation industry recruitment.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how transit agencies can get more out of their information technology, traveler information, and Intelligent Transportation Systems applications. From IT professionals and chief information officers to software developers, the program will offer information for everyone – and networking for all. See you in Toronto!
More information on the TransITech program, including registration, is available at the APTA web site.
