If there’s one certainty with the COVID pandemic, it’s that the economy we “return” to will be forever changed. As such, IATR themed its 33rd annual conference “Resilient Regulation!” to showcase the hottest trends that are fueling new transportation policies. Regulators around the world are using the pandemic as an opportunity to accelerate change in numerous key areas, including transportation. The IATR conference is the place where regulators go to swap ideas, share best practices, and help to shape policies that impact us all.

Last week, IATR announced that Daniel Ramot, the cofounder and CEO of Via, will deliver a keynote speech. He will discuss the future of shared mobility in a post-pandemic era.

IATR, an organization composed of dedicated regulatory leaders across the globe, has issued important daily global news updates on the pandemic, created resources on its website for its members on guidance and reports of relevance to their work, conducted surveys, and held numerous meetings and webinars to share information since the start of the pandemic. IATR President Matt Daus of Windels Marx has been a frequent guest and host on countless webinars and virtual meetings over the past few months. Next up, Daus will be a featured speaker at The Transportation Alliance’s Mobilize 2020 conference, an in-person meeting which will be held November 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta.
