Transportation Research Board Retains J. Spargo & Associates, Inc.
5/8/2014
J. Spargo & Associates, Inc. (JS&A) has been selected to promote and manage the rapidly growing and previously sold out exhibit that is held in conjunction with the the Transportation Research Board's Annual Meeting held every January in Washington, D.C. The exhibit is designed to help TRB meet its mission of promoting innovation and progress in transportation by featuring new products, systems, and services for all modes of transportation.

In 2015 the 94th Annual Meeting and Exhibit will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., January 11-15, 2015. The move to the convention center will make it possible to accommodate exhibitors who have been previously waitlisted and will provide greater flexibility to accommodate large displays, vehicular exhibits, and more new products.

Nearly 12,000 transportation professionals attended TRB's Annual Meeting in 2014. The program covers all transportation modes including Aviation, Highway, Marine Transportation, Motor Carriers, Pedestrians and Bicyclists, Pipelines, Public Transportation, and Rail.

Professional attendance is comprised of policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academia. The meeting, which draws attendees from throughout the United States and from 70 countries, is the single largest annual gathering of transportation practitioners and researchers in the world.


About The Transportation Research Board
The mission of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) is to promote innovation and progress in transportation through research. In an objective and interdisciplinary setting, TRB facilitates the sharing of information on transportation practice and policy by researchers and practitioners; stimulates research and offers research management services that promote technical excellence; provides expert advice on transportation policy and programs; and disseminates research results broadly and encouraged their implementation.

TRB is one of six major divisions of the National Research Council- a private, nonprofit institution that is the principal operating agency of the National Academies in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The National Research Council is jointly administered by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. TRB's varied activities-described below-annually engage more than 7,000 engineers, scientists, and other transportation researchers and practitioners from the public and private sectors and academia, all of whom contribute their expertise in the public interest by participating on TRB committees, panels, and task forces. The program is supported by state transportation departments, federal agencies including the component administrations of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other organizations and individuals interested in the development of transportation.

TRB was established in 1920 as the National Advisory Board on Highway Research to provide a mechanism for the exchange of information and research results about highway technology. Renamed the Highway Research Board (HRB) in 1925, the organization accomplished its mission through standing committees, publications, and an annual meeting. In the decades that followed, HRB steadily increased in size. Information exchange remained its sole mission until the 1950s, when it began to undertake management of ad hoc research projects. The first continuing research management activity-the National Cooperative Highway Research Program- started in 1962. During the 1960s, the Board's activities became increasingly multimodal in outlook. In 1974 the Highway Research Board became the Transportation Research Board. Since then, TRB's portfolio of services has expanded significantly-first in the early 1980s, when it began conducting studies of national transportation policy issues, and again in the 1990s, when Congress, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the state departments of transportation asked TRB to undertake additional tasks, including management responsibilities for the Transit Cooperative Research Program, guidance of ongoing research programs such as the Long-Term Pavement Performance studies, and management of the Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis programs. More recent additions have included new cooperative research programs in airports, freight, and hazardous materials transportation, and the second Strategic Highway Research Program
