Please plan to join fellow transportation professionals from around the state and nation for the 2017 ITS Georgia Annual Meeting and Expositions. This year we are meeting at the Hyatt Regency Savannah October 8 – 10.
Our theme this year is fittingly, The Big “Twenty” – “20 Years of Technological InnovaTionS in GA.” We’ve been marking the chapter’s 20th anniversary all year and the annual meeting will be another celebration of the benefits ITS solutions have brought to Georgia travelers.
We will be announcing a new slate of Officers and Directors for the chapter for the 2018 – 2019 term during the meeting.
We are also shining a special spotlight on our vendors this year. In addition to plenty of time set aside to visit the exhibit area, our vendors will be presenting their latest products and ITS solutions to the plenary session. Read more here.
In addition to the vendors, commemoration events and chapter business, we have an excellent technical program lined up focusing on regional ITS programs to preparing for the future with sessions on connected vehicles and Smart Cities.
