2019 Conference – ITS – The Path to Smart Mobility

2019 Conference – ITS – The Path to Smart Mobility

The ITS Arizona 26th Annual Conference was held on Wednesday, September 23rd and Thursday, September 24th, 2019 at the Mesa Convention Center. The conference began with a very well-attended half-day Smart Mobility workshop that featured federal, state and local experts providing insights on Smart Mobility applications. The presenters shared the opportunities and challenges that the Smart Mobility technologies are providing not only to increase the mobility and safety, but also the need for collaboration with other organizations and industries.

The second day of the conference began with a great keynote address by John Halikowski, Director of Arizona Department of Transportation. During the breakout sessions, a total of 29 presentations and a panel discussion were available to attendees, along with several opportunities to visit the booths of our great sponsors and exhibitors and learn more about their latest products and services. During lunch, the Past Presidents’ Awards were presented, highlighting the excellent work being done in the region.  In addition, the ITS Arizona Member of the Year was announced, the Graduate Student Paper Award was presented and the results of the elections for the 2018 ITS Arizona Board of Directors were announced.  Following on the success of the 2019 conference, we again had excellent attendance by both individuals and sponsors/exhibitors, and we look forward to continuing the trend at next year’s ITS Arizona 27th Annual Conference.
