The 2016 Dr. J. Don Brock TransOvation™ Workshop
“How New Technologies & A National Freight Program
Can Get America Moving Again”
December 7 – 9
Astec Industries – J. Don Brock Training Center
The Annual Dr. J. Don Brock “TransOvation™ Workshop ” is a unique opportunity to learn from, and collaborate with, other industry leaders in this exciting new world of rapidly changing technologies and transportation developments. This year’s event takes place at Astec Industries in Chattanooga, TN.
2016 Theme: “How New Technologies & A National Freight Program Can Get America Moving Again”
This year’s attendees will look at how new technologies and a national freight program can greatly improve the U.S. transportation system for shipping and logistics. We will also discuss how the “super-users” of transportation infrastructure and the transportation construction industry can work together to identify and plan for these new challenges and opportunities.
This event is about changing your mindset. Thinking outside the box. Most of all, TransOvation™ is not your typical conference – this event gives attendees the ability to participate. Attendees will also explore how to be open to change in better ways. They will learn how to bring these concepts back to the work place and help their companies adapt to new markets. Attendees will participate in an engaging workshop so that they can take these concepts and apply them to this year’s industry challenge. Participants will also hear innovative talks from private sector and government thought leaders. In the final workshop session, the teams will present their ideas to national thought leaders and decision makers.
Overall, TransOvation™ is an eye-opening learning experience for key transportation design, construction and management executives who want to position their industry and their firm or agency as leaders in a rapidly changing world. It’s not just another meeting. It is a mission!
