What Have Previous Attendees Said About The Event:

I really had a great time at the LA conference and surprised many attendees interested in Subway Visualization and as well had a great opportunity to present for LA Metro staff at their headquarters. You guys did an excellent job for organizing the event and surprised to see many talented attendees.” – Alla Reddy, Deputy Chief, NYCT

The conference was amazing. I’ve met people that I would not have met otherwise. This conference is energizing because many people in Texas know about the project but many people outside of Texas don’t realize what we’re doing and how far along evolved. To be able to talk to the group that’s assembled here today and have them understand how close we are to construction, I think it is eye-opening to a lot of people and energizes us.” – Holly Reed, Texas Central

The conference is very interesting. It’s my first attendance at this event, and I’ve been very impressed with the people I’ve met, a lot of them are trying things — it’s not every day you run into a Chief Innovation Officer at a transit authority, and here, I’ve now met two (and I hope to meet more). I’m enjoying it. It definitely was worth the trip.” – Melinda White, CEO, Transit Wireless (BAI)
