Association: American Traffic Safety Services Association

Conference: 49th Annual Convention & Traffic Expo

Venue: Tampa Convention Center

Location: Tampa, Florida

ATSSA 2019 kicks off Sunday, February 10, with an opening general session featuring Sterling Martin from the Center for Advancing Retail & Technology as host and moderator. Joining him on stage will be industry leaders, who will discuss the emergence of innovative technologies and how ATSSA is preparing for the future ahead. Also on the agenda:

Showcase what’s new. This year’s New Products Rollout event is different because ATSSA will host a section on the tradeshow floor where attendees can check out the latest product innovations during expo hours. Participants will also have an opportunity to give a short presentation about their products during scheduled times.

 Join the circle. ATSSA’s Circle of Innovation, Solutions Edition, is new for 2019 and will focus on solutions that state departments of transportation have implemented to improve safety. Representatives from DOTs nationwide will present their innovations and ideas to ATSSA’s Traffic Expo exhibitors, manufacturers, and suppliers in a theater-style setting.

Get talking. Traffic Talks are informal, stop-in presentations given by roadway safety experts and association staff at the ATSSA Pavilion on the exhibit floor. These 30-minute sessions are designed to provide attendees with a quick burst of information. Presentations will include a state legislative update and how to make the most of ATSSA membership.
