Annual Conference




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.

  • A special 40th Anniversary Celebration, included with your conference registration!

  • Keynote address delivered by Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post.





Arianna Huffington - 2017 Annual Conference Keynote Speaker

Sponsored by HDR, Inc.

Arianna Huffington is the founder of The Huffington Post, the founder and CEO of Thrive Global, and the author of fifteen books, including, most recently, Thrive and The Sleep Revolution.

In May 2005, she launched The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that quickly became one of the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on the Internet, and in 2012 won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. In August 2016, she launched Thrive Global, a corporate and consumer well-being and productivity platform with the mission of changing the way we work and live by ending the collective delusion that burnout is the price we must pay for success. Thrive Global provides trainings, seminars, e-courses, coaching and ongoing support based on the latest scientific findings to improve people’s health and increase productivity for both companies and individuals around the world.

She has been named to Time magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people and the Forbes "Most Powerful Women" list. Originally from Greece, she moved to England when she was 16 and graduated from Cambridge University with an M.A. in economics. At 21, she became president of the famed debating society, the Cambridge Union.
