    The Transportation Alliance Spring Conference & Expo to Focus on NEMT and Contracting Opportunities


    (ROCKVILLE, Md.)— Registration is now open for The Transportation Alliance’s 2020 Spring Conference & Expo, to be held March 18-20 at the Westin Copley in Boston, where the focus will be on the massively growing opportunities in non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) and other public and private sector contracting opportunities.

    As part of 103-year-old trade association’s overall strategy to broaden and diversify revenue sources in the face of the quickly changing transportation industry, The Transportation Alliance’s Executive Committee voted in December to make the Spring Conference & Expo focused intensely on “NEMT & Contracting.”

    “In a survey of participants who attended TTA’s annual convention in Las Vegas last year, 50 percent of respondents said their companies are now engaged in NEMT work, a multi-billion dollar industry,” TTA President Tom Arrighi said. “This growing sector is something all members should be watching closely and becoming involved in, whether you run taxis, shuttles, luxury vehicles or school transportation. This is about how to use your existing infrastructure to access new revenue streams. It’s an important business line for today’s modern transportation fleet and our Spring Conference & Expo is a perfect way to share information and explore best practices to help build your operation.”

    The Transportation Alliance’s meetings provide transportation fleet owners, CEOs and managers the opportunity to showcase innovative ideas, explore new business opprotunities and best practices, and network with their fellow industry peers. In comparison to the association’s annual convention each Fall, the Spring Conference & Expo offers a more intimate setting for operators to network and for vendors to form long-lasting business partnerships.

    The Spring Conference & Expo will cover practical guidance and professional tips on how to find, evaluate and respond to NEMT and other contracting opportunities, how association members can grow their businesses through public and private sector contracts, the association’s legislative victories on Capitol Hill, and much more.
