Information for Public Agency Officials

The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), the nation’s leader in promoting roadway infrastructure safety, recognizes the importance of inviting key transportation professionals to witness the latest innovations the roadway safety industry has to offer. ATSSA members, and the thousands who visit and participate in the Annual Convention & Traffic Expo, make up the largest exhibition of its kind in the Americas. It is also an event – year after year – that the entire roadway safety industry plans for to connect with their peers, see the latest in roadway safety technology, and discover ways to introduce their unique innovations, products and services. Each year, numerous and unique roadway safety devices are introduced at this event.

Products on display in the 200,000 square foot exhibit hall will include guardrail, flagging equipment, personal protective equipment and safety devices, lighting, pavement marking equipment and materials, signs and signals, traffic control devices, message and arrow boards, vehicle safety equipment, trucks, trailers, attenuators, crash cushions, and much more. This is a wonderful opportunity to see what new technology is being developed that will support the mission of your agency.
