PHIA celebrates successful 2016 conference

October 6, 2016

2016PHIACONFWEBLast week, more than one hundred fifty industry professionals and highway experts gathered at the Harrisburg Hilton for the annual Pennsylvania Highway Information Association conference.

Following a welcome from PHIA President Jamie Van Buren, attendees were treated to seminars from transportation experts on the topics of autonomous vehicles, the future of state funding, and public perception of transportation improvements.

The Turnpike Commission provided an update on its work, and the day wrapped up with an examination of the politics at play in transportation industry policy.

Our Keynote featured capitol press corps members John Micek of the Patriot News and Dennis Owens of abc27-WHTM. They provided our audience with their predictions for the election next month, as well as a primer on the large plate of issues facing the General Assembly upon its return.

“The PHIA conference and annual meeting is always an important gathering for industry professionals, but this year’s speakers provided exceptional updates on many facets of transportation,” PHIA Managing Director Jason Wagner said. “The broad range of speakers reinforced our belief that highways are an integral part of a multi-modal transportation system.”
