ATSSA Innovation Awards

Recognizing Traffic Expo’s Most Innovative New Products and Technologies

ATSSA Innovation Awards recognize the top three products and companies at Traffic Expo selected by a group of public transportation officials. Criteria for selection includes lifesaving qualities, degree of need, innovation and design and eligibility under the Highway Safety Improvement Program. Bonus points can also be awarded by the judges in several different areas. The judges will visit each of the exhibitors participating in this event during official exhibit hours to personally evaluate and examine the new product or service, introduced to the industry since February 1, 2017.

Additionally, winners will also receive national attention following the release of a national news release announcing Innovation Award winners and their products. ATSSA will also release news of the award to the winner’s hometown media. In the past, winners of ATSSA’s Innovation Award have used the award in their own marketing and advertising materials throughout the year.

Additional information about this event coming soon.
