2024 Transportation Conference

Wednesday, February 7, 2024


Join us for our 2024 Transportation Conference on February 7th, 2024 at the Cook Hotel & Conference Center on the Louisiana State University campus.  Meet and speak directly with agency leaders, regulators, and politicians as we discuss issues ranging from infrastructure to logistics that affect the everyday operations and business of Louisiana's transportation industry.  There will be ample opportunities to network and visit, including exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities - which are limited.


Exhibitor tables for our 2024 Transportation Conference are now available! Throughout our programming, we will have dedicated breaks for attendees to visit with exhibitors in attendance. Exhibitor registration can be completed through the registration link to the right. Each exhibitor registration includes one (1) registration to the Conference, with additional registrations required for multiple attendees.  If you have special requests for your table, such as proximity to a power outlet, please reach out to or . We will do our best to accommodate exhibitors, but requests and tables will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
