Allie Kelly to Address Transportation Leaders at the WTS Annual Conference


January 17, 2019 – (Washington, DC) Allie Kelly, executive director of The Ray, a non-profit organization which is the nation’s only publicly accessible, living laboratory for transportation innovation, has been announced as a featured speaker for the 2019 WTS Conference in Boston, May 15-17.

As the leader of The Ray, Ms. Kelly is at the forefront of emerging trends in the transportation industry. She has helped the organization implement and build almost a dozen ground-breaking, world-leading technology demonstrations, including the first solar road in the United States and the world’s first public demonstration of a drive-through tire safety station. She is passionate about speaking about The Ray from the main stage at industry conferences around the world including the U.S Transportation Research Board, AASHTO, VERGE, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, AREDAY and TedX Atlanta. Ms. Kelly was the recipient of the 2018 Atlanta Technology Professionals (ATP) Impact Award and was listed as one of the 100 Women to Know by Engineering Georgia in 2018.

“The conference provides transportation leaders a forum where they can exchange ideas and engage in conversation about emerging developments in the industry,” said Maggie Walsh, WTS International Board Chair. “Connecting with the conference theme, ‘The Hub of Ingenuity’, it is the perfect platform for Allie Kelly to share her expertise on ‘smart transportation’ and hear about The Ray’s mission to implement new ideas and technologies towards a safer and sustainable future. Her passion and energy around this topic is sure to inspire attendees.”

Ms. Kelly’s address is one of the many highlights of the Annual Conference, the premier multi-modal event of the year. It attracts more than 700 corporate and governmental industry leaders worldwide, including executives, CEOs, government administrators, and leading engineering authorities. Attendees at the conference gather to network, discuss the state of the world’s transportation infrastructure, strategize on advancing professionally, and share experiences and insights on making positive changes for future generations.
