Registration is Open for the 2023 WTS International Annual Conference

Registration is open for the 2023 WTS International Annual Conference: The Great Intersection, to be hosted at the Omni Atlanta Hotel at the CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia, May 10-12, 2023.  

Hosted in a city known as the birthplace of the modern civil rights movement, the 2023 Annual Conference will explore this year’s theme through pre-conference activities and workshops, exciting keynotes, plenary panels, technical sessions, exhibits, tours throughout Atlanta and the surrounding areas, and multiple networking opportunities and social events. 

“We’re thrilled to offer so many new and expanded portions of our program in 2023 as we continue to build this event year after year. I am wildly impressed with the variety of competitive submissions to our program, and I applaud our members and local WTS Atlanta chapter for their dedication to building such a spectacular event for our members and industry stakeholders,” says Sara Stickler, WTS International President and CEO.  

Session Topics

Breakout sessions, falling into five separate programming tracks, cover a variety of topics on issues of equity in transportation and leadership development, including global workplace development, funding and fuel tax, toll projects, women-led community projects, transit equity, technology for all, contract development, staffing and personnel management, data and sustainability, and more.

Sponsoring #WTSAC2023

Multiple organizations are noted supporting sponsors of the event, including Atkins, Ergosync Engineering, Kiewit, Kleinfelder, Michael Baker International, Modern Mobility Partners, RS&H, Siemens, Transdev, VHB, and Strategic Partners HDR, HNTB, Jacobs, and WSP. Additional opportunities are still available.

New for the 2023 Conference Program

As an association that promotes equity and access in transportation, WTS is proud to support working parents who attend our events. For the first time, onsite childcare will be made available during the conference, and teenagers who are exploring careers in the transportation industry are welcome to attend.

Also new for 2023, the WTS Foundation will host the scholarship and awards fundraising gala offsite on the evening of May 11th at the Georgia Aquarium. This elevated program allows for increased development for scholarships and educational opportunities for the next generation of transportation professionals.
