2018 WTS Annual Conference in San Diego, CA

2018 WTS Annual Conference is SOLD OUT!

Please see below for volunteer opportunities...



WTS International is hosting its 2018 annual conference, "Driving the Waves of Change," in San Diego, California, May 16 - 18, 2018! San Diego boasts a diverse economy supported by international trade, manufacturing, military, biotechnology, and tourism. Its mild and sunny year-round climate makes it an ideal location to foster a wide range of transportation sectors; rail, aviation, construction, freight, transit, and active transportation all play a vital role in the daily operation of this thriving coastal city. San Diego also serves as a great place to discuss the future of transportation and the meaningful impact of women working in the field. 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.
