Transportation 24/7: The System that Never Sleeps

WTS International is hosting its 2017 annual conference in New York City, May 17-19, 2017!  The 24/7 New York area transportation network, serving as the backdrop to the conference, is the largest in North America.  With its complex systems, multi-state linkage, and service for passengers and freight, it is vital for residents, visitors, and the nation's economy.  During this interactive, three-day session, transportation leaders will exchange ideas and learn about the latest developments in the industry.  More than 700 corporate and governmental transportation leaders worldwide will be in attendance, and a multitude of thoughtful and engaging topics will be covered.


Check out some of the 2017 Conference highlights:

  • 19 optional technical tours of some of the nation's most impressive transportation hubs and iconic infrastructure and landmarks.
  • 2 optional professional development intensives: Authentic Influence and Understanding and Growing Your Personal Brand.
