ATSSA’s convention and expo brings together more than 3,500 business leaders, government officials, manufacturers and corporate roadway personnel from over 50 countries. More than 150 companies will display cutting-edge traffic safety solutions, state-of-the-art roadway safety vehicles, and heavy equipment in more than 200,000 square feet of exhibit space at the convention center. The lineup of 35-plus education sessions on Jan. 27-28 is designed to provide the most beneficial and timely information available in the industry. ATSSA develops these sessions through research and member surveys. Attendees receive 1.25 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for attending this year's conference and education sessions. Information sessions also take the form of “Traffic Talks,” which run for 30 minutes throughout the Traffic Expo, after the exhibit hall opens on Jan. 26. New for 2020, attendees can attend Micro Sessions on Jan. 26. These 30-minute sessions are packed with high-caliber content. They use data exchanges to increase work zone safety, improve the understanding of friction data using GPS and imagery, and enhance traffic paint design for Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs). ATSSA’s Circle of Innovation will be held Jan. 28 and provides more than 200 state Department of Transportation officials and roadway and safety engineers an opportunity to express their needs to ATSSA manufacturers and installers.
