The two groups suggest that combining efforts will deliver benefits including more presentations in key topic areas that address safety, mobility and technology; a larger exhibition of transportation suppliers and services; more opportunity to network within a broader group of leaders and decision-makers from across North America; and new attention and interest to the transportation sector as a whole.

“A joint conference between ITS Canada and TAC offers both organizations opportunities for a unique conference experience – one which will showcase the incredible advantages of integrating best practices and contemporary technologies,”  says Chris Philp, chairman and CEO, ITS Canada, in a media release.

The event, the largest conference of its kind in Canada, will be held in the new Halifax Convention Centre, located in downtown Halifax.

The 2018 TAC Conference & Exhibition will take place in Saskatoon, September 30-October 3.
