5 Oct 2022 | Posted by | 0 Comments | ,

TransportationCamp DC is an annual opportunity to connect with experts, practitioners, and students all at once. It’s coming back on Saturday, January 7, 2023 at George Mason University’s Arlington campus. Here are the top five things you need to know about the popular “unconference.”

1. We’re hybrid this year

We want to reach as many people as possible, so in addition to the in-person event at Van Metre Hall, we’ll also have a virtual option over Zoom.

2. Attendees choose the topics—and lead the conversation

TransportationCamp is a place for all “transportation nerds” to set the agenda and lead the conversation. After the keynote, the full-day event is broken up into hour-long breakout sessions. In-person Campers propose discussion topics on the morning of the event, and if their topic gets picked, they get to lead a one-hour discussion.

3. Virtual attendees propose virtual-only session topics in advance

Virtual attendees gain access to the welcome, keynote address, hybrid sessions, and virtual-only sessions that they lead themselves. Unlike in-person attendees, virtual Campers will propose their session topics in December. Register by December 1 to make sure you don’t miss your chance to submit!


4. You can get to TransportationCamp by bus, car, metro, or bike

Van Metre Hall on George Mason University’s Arlington campus is located on the orange and silver metro lines, right between the Virginia Square—GMU and Clarendon stops. A Capital Bikeshare docking station is located near the entrance on Fairfax Drive. If you’re driving, you can find parking in the garage under Van Metre Hall. Easily route to the entrance of the garage by plugging “Founders Way North, Arlington, VA” into your GPS.

5. Registration is open now, and spots are limited

This unconference is always full of new things to learn —and tons of fun. Register today to secure your seat at TransportationCamp DC, and let others know you’ll be there! Tweet with our hashtag and join our LinkedIn event.
