Transportation Camp - April 14th Drexel University

To a Key Partner,

I wanted to make you aware of an event that I am on the organizing board for.

TransportationCamp Philadelphia will bring together 200 + leading and up-and-coming thinkers and doers in surface transportation and technology from all over the U.S. and other countries. It is a high-energy, exciting day of presentations, panels, and networking opportunities, all created and led by the participants themselves. Through the new, engaging unconference model, the TransportationCamp fosters the sharing of innovative ideas that focus on technology, new forms of mobility, and moving more people in fewer vehicles.  In the unconference format the participants themselves propose and lead sessions. This ensures topics of interest to the transportation community, a high level of engagement by participants, and great variety of issues covered. The first TransportationCamps were held in New York City and San Francisco in 2011 and then in Washington, D.C., in 2012, where it has taken place every year since.

TransportationCamp is positioned as “where technology meets transportation”. Transportation of people and product is an issue of increasing importance with direct impacts on economic strength, environmental sustainability and social equity. Advances in technology such as mobile computing, open source software and APIs, spatial analysis and others presents an opportunity to improve mobility more immediately and at a lower cost than has been possible in the past. TransportationCamp raises awareness of this emerging opportunity and builds connections between disparate innovators in diverse fields including public administration, transportation operations, transportation planning,  information design and software engineering. http://transportationcamp.org/

TransportationCamps have been held around the country, however this is the first time for Philadelphia. It is being held at Drexel University on April 14th and we expect more than 200 attendees. Here is the link to photos from the previous TransportationCamp at NYC for a flavor of the day: https://www.flickr.com/photos/138183373@N06/.

Given the transportation theme and being held in Philly, I thought you would have an interest in attending, sending one of your team, communicating to your associates or sponsorship and having your brand in front of over 200 people who are forward thinkers in the transportation field.  Attached are informational fliers about the event and sponsorship.  In addition to the sponsorship levels identified we have added a $250 Benefactor level.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Hopefully I will see you at the event.
