The New West

Rising from the desert floor, the Metropolitan Phoenix region is the epicenter of the fastest-growing county in the nation. Maricopa County has held this title for three consecutive years, adding more than 81,000 people this past year alone to already booming populous of 4.4 million residents. Due to a well-connected freeway system, arterial street grid, regional airports, improved bus and light rail transit, and a robust off street bicycle and pedestrian network, options for getting around the Valley of the Sun are plentiful.

As a hot spot for autonomous vehicle testing, it is not uncommon to see these vehicles testing local streets and freeways. Accommodating a growing region can be challenging in a desert environment, and as such tremendous growth comes tremendous responsibility. The 2020 conference, “The New West – Where Ideas Meet Opportunity,” is the ideal setting to learn and discuss issues impacting the transportation industry nationwide.

Registration will open in December 2019.
