The 2016 Challenge Question:  How Can We Move Freight More Productively to Give America the Competitive Edge?

Exploring the Intersection of New Technology, Infrastructure & Public Policy

TransOvation brings some of the brightest minds in transportation design, construction and management together with major business leaders for an intense, one-of-a-kind interactive learning event that fosters innovative thinking.  At this year’s workshop, “super-users” of our transportation infrastructure network will lay out the challenges they see.  Attendees will focus on developing ideas designed to overcome them.

The Workshop
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!
