Pam / Monday, February 13, 2023 / Categories: ATSSA, Convention & Expo, Innovation, Transportation, Tech and Innovation Touch down in Phoenix for ATSSA’s event of the year It's not too late to register and get your name on the roster Yes, there was a big event in Phoenix yesterday but could those guys tackle roadway safety solutions? Could their front line mount an effective defense against work zone incursions? Could their offensive coordinators come up with a plan to integrate pavement markings and connected vehicle technology? No, but roadway safety fans can find strategies for those issues and many more in Phoenix Feb. 17-21 at ATSSA’s biggest event of the year – the 53rd Annual Convention & Traffic Expo. Attendees will score big through interactions with industry experts, networking opportunities, nearly 50 education sessions and by exploring the 200,000-square-foot exhibit hall (more than triple the size of the gridiron) where new and powerful lifesaving devices will be displayed. In addition, NFL coaches as well as industry managers could benefit from organizational leadership expert Scott Wozniak, ATSSA’s keynote speaker on Feb. 19. He will draw on his experience advising organizations of all sizes across six continents including Silicon Valley start-ups. Plus, he will bring lessons gained from his experience with everything from Fortune 500 companies to family enterprises to a stint at Chick-fil-A headquarters. In his message, “Great Brands Have Great Employees – The Engine Behind Legendary Companies,” Wozniak will explain how to build an “employee engagement engine” and thus create a winning team. Registration is still open for the Convention & Traffic Expo where roadway safety and innovation intersect so get your name on the roster before it’s too late. The event lineup also includes: A Legislative Insights Forum on Feb. 20 featuring former Rep. Bill Shuster, who represented Pennsylvania’s 9th Congressional District for more than 17 years and chaired the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Shuster is currently a senior policy advisor at Squire Patton Boggs, providing strategic advice and consulting on issues including transportation, infrastructure and local governments. The New Products Rollout where 18 companies put their new ideas for advancing roadway safety in front of the industry and a panel of judges made up of department of transportation (DOT) officials. From this group of products, one Innovation Award winner will emerge, with the potential for additional honorable mentions. ATSSA’s Circle of Innovation on Feb. 21 will be the “Solutions Edition,” with DOT officials sharing what is working and what they need from ATSSA members to address issues. The session will also include a presentation on the product that captured the Innovation Award. The announcement of three national awards, which this year include the Industry Achievement Award, the National Safety Award and the Mark of Excellence Award.
