Nestled in the Ozark Mountains, Branson, Missouri has long been a popular destination for travelers. With a resident population of only 11,000, Branson routinely welcomes and entertains thousands of visitors from across the U.S. (and world). Located near the geographic center of America’s heartland, Branson is an ideal location to showcase the 2014 National Rural ITS Conference theme “ITS in the Heartland”!
Experience all that Branson’s small-town charm, excellent meeting facilities and many entertainment options have to offer while networking with transportation professionals from across the country. Numerous technical sessions, training opportunities and professional tours await attendees. Plan on joining us in Branson in 2014!
Why Attend? This conference will provide participants an opportunity to network and share experiences within and across a wide variety of ITS disciplines. In addition to traditional ITS topics, this event will bring together both traditional and non-traditional ITS users to address such issues as rural safety, multi-agency coordination, and workforce development, as well as EMS and transit issues.
The many different training and networking opportunities available through this event will provide participants with the tools necessary to effectively plan and deploy ITS technologies within their own jurisdictions.
Who Should Attend? Public and private transportation, transit, tourism, enforcement, trucking, public safety and medical service professionals engaged in the operations, maintenance, and use of our transportation system should attend this Conference. Elected and appointed officials, business and community leaders and emergency responders and public safety personnel will contribute to the rich dialogue while learning about the technical challenges facing the transportation community.
