Advancing Transportation Through Collaboration: UrbanLogiq’s Look Back at the 2023 ITS America Conference & Expo
Our team had a fantastic time at the recent 2023 ITS America Conference & Expo in Grapevine Texas and we want to share our experience as exhibitors and speakers at this year’s conference. Our team joined engaging panels and connected with industry leaders, policymakers, and innovators across from across North America.
All in all, we left the annual ITS America Conference & Expo feeling energized and inspired about the future of transportation. We can’t wait to share our thoughts and takeaways with you in this blog post.
Conversations fuelling the future of transportation
This year’s ITS America Conference & Expo featured a wide range of panel discussions on the latest trends and emerging technologies in transportation. For example, the panel “From Aggregation to Integration: The Next Phase of Big Data” brought together a mix of industry and public sector leaders to candidly discuss how to move beyond collecting data towards combining it with other advanced technologies to improve decision-making, equity, mobility, safety, and environmental outcomes.
“We had wonderful questions from the audience. My co-panelists presented insightful remarks about the future of big data. I can’t wait to continue the conversation,” – Leah Hanvey, Head of Business Development, UrbanLogiq.

Another highlight was learning from the insights and experiences of fellow panellists. We left the discussion feeling inspired by the potential of data to transform transportation systems for the better. Ultimately we felt encouraged by the response and level of engagement from those in attendance.
Unlocking Innovation: The importance of making time
One of the key takeaways from the aforementioned panel was the importance of public and private sector collaboration to advance transportation solutions. Public officials are undoubtedly busy individuals who receive numerous pitches for products and services, however the panelists agreed that staying ahead of the curve is critical to providing the best transportation systems possible.
Providing data-driven solutions is at the core of what we do at UrbanLogiq. We left the conference feeling inspired by the productive conversations that took place. Conversations that emphasized the importance of integrating data into a holistic framework and breaking down the silos to drive meaningful change in the transportation industry.
