The 2017 ARTBA National Convention—Sept. 17-20, at the Omni Amelia Island Hotel in Florida—is themed, “Artificial Intelligence & Technological Innovation: A New Era in Transportation Construction.”

“This will not be a typical ARTBA convention,” says ARTBA Chairman David Zachry. “Most of our featured speakers come from outside our industry.” 

Opening session speaker Michael Steep, executive director of Stanford University Global Project Center’s Digital Cities & Emerging Technologies, will discuss how to harness the latest innovations to build, manage and transform companies through ground-breaking, scalable business models.

Other speakers include Ross Smith, director of customer engineering at Microsoft, and Mike Lester, technology transfer partnership manager for the NASA Kennedy Space Center.

The program will also feature legislative, regulatory and transportation construction market conditions reports from senior ARTBA staff … and more!
