      Quality of Life: Making Transportation Reliability Real

      The challenge of providing a seamless, dependable transportation system has been central to the mission of state DOT's for the past decade and more. The essence of reliability, whether focused on providing relief from unexpected congestion or building a road network that users can count on, has been central to DOT priorities and funding. Innovations in technology and processes as well as better coordination with first responders and freight systems are important stories to tell. Panelists will offer their perspective on what is working in their states and what more has to be done.

      Host Night Event - Olympic Park with the Flying Aces
      Olympic Park

      Get ready for an amazing night at Olympic Park. You'll spend the evening immersed in the wonders of being an Olympian. The Flying Ace All-Stars are handpicked Olympians and National Team skiers and snowboarders who will perform acrobatic feats, soaring up to 60 feet in the air.

      While these athletes are the best in the world at their individual sports, what sets them apart is they love to meet people and share stories about their competition and life experience. The experience of meeting and talking to the performers will last a lifetime. It’s truly incredible to have the opportunity to ask a world-class athlete, face-to-face, about what propels them to greatness. You’ll also have the opportunity to try local High West Distillery favorites at the Numetric whiskey tasting booth — while you learn more about how thought leaders are leveraging Numetric Traffic Safety Analytics to gain consensus and confidence in their safety decisions. 

      ​Shuttle service starts at 5:45 p.m.-6:45 p.m. with continuous loops from each hotel (Sundial, Silverado, and Grand Summit), estimated drive time is 15 minutes.
