Updated STN EXPO Conference Overview Now Online

Want to learn more about the Transportation Director Summit? Want to know how many special trainings will be held during the conference? The updated STN EXPO conference overview brochure has that information, plus more, at www.stnexpo.com.

The latest brochure includes an overview and frequently asked questions on the Transportation Director Summit, a new signature event designed exclusively for qualified transportation directors that takes place July 7 and 8. This event is followed by the STN EXPO main conference workshops that begin on July 9.

The overview also has descriptions on two special trainings that require separate registration and a separate fee from the main conference rate. These safety and security-related trainings address dispatcher training, defensible use of force on the school bus and surviving tactics for the active killer on a bus. These trainings are $149 each, and this rate is good through June 9. These trainings would be an added agenda item onto a main conference registration.

See more in the brochure, such as a daily breakdown of industry speakers, workshops, keynotes, general sessions, networking events and the trade show.

Get your approval and register today! The Early Bird Rate ($100 savings) ends June 9. Then book your hotel room at the Peppermill Resort at the conference rate of $102 per night or $128 for an upgraded room. Online hotel reservations close June 5.
