Connected Transportation Virtual Trade Show
The U.S. Department of Transportation Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) and the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan (MTAM) are collaborating to create an on-going virtual trade show for the Connected Transportation eco-system which will provide opportunities for the connected transportation community to actively engage and develop new business relationships.
The Connected Transportation Virtual Trade Show will be available 24/7, 365 days per year, allowing the connected transportation community to search and find vendors and collaborating partners, and to conduct business across the globe from wherever they are located. Visitors to the environment will have a multitude of ways to interact with exhibitors, as well as to obtain information about their firms.
Exhibitors booths are highly customizable in design, color, branding and content. Firms may include:
- links to outside resources,
- sign-ups for newsletters,
and much more. Exhibitors may also offer scheduled webcasts from their booths to which they can invite private audiences if so inclined.
MTAM will also be periodically bringing in existing in-person connected transportation-related conferences from around the U.S. and around the world into the environment, offering producers of those events the opportunity to expand their attendance to a global audience, and increasing the potential visitors to the virtual trade show. MTAM and USDOT will also offer webcasts and webinars within the environment from time-to-time.
Additional resources within the environment will include: Industry Resource materials, Online Education Courses specific to the Connected Transportation industry, and a Networking Lounge for Visitors. In the future, MTAM expects to host Job Fairs in the Environment for the Connected Transportation industry.
