In addition to Michigan’s rich history in transportation, ITS America is fortunate to have such a welcoming community as the 2014 World Congress host city. The 2014 ITS World Congress Honorary Committee Chairman, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, personally invites you to attend the ITS World Congress. Watch the video below and you will also hear from the 2014 ITS World Congress Organizing Chairman and HNTB’s Vice President of ITS Jim Barbaresso on what you can expect to discover at the Congress. And Michigan DOT Director Kirk Steudle, who serves as Vice Chair on our Honorary Committee, explains how Southeast Michigan’s legacy in the automobile industry has translated to the modern day and secured the region’s reputation as the leading manufacturing and research center for the future of transportation. Perhaps Steudle says it best when he recognizes that “Michigan is the place to put the world on wheels,” both throughout history and for the next 100 years.
