FAQ

What is the event about?

The Road User Charging Conference USA provides the latest insight, case studies and debate on current trends and future challenges that affect senior decision makers who have responsibility in the intelligent transportation systems and road pricing fields. This two-day gathering of leading practitioners welcomes delegates from around the world and across sectors to encourage active discussion and peer-to-peer learning.

When and where does it take place?

The Road User Charging Conference USA 2023 takes place on the 27 & 28th April 2023 at the James L Knight Conference Centre, and the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the heart of downtown Miami. The city is a favourite for conventions, and the well equipped hotel and conference centre will be the perfect venue for our first in-person event in the road usage charging arena.

Who is the event for?

Due to the high-value nature of the content being provided, places are reserved for senior level practitioners, policy makers and project leaders, e.g. Heads of Contracts, Senior Policy Advisors, Transportation Strategy Directors, Heads of Charging and Toll Policy Leads - not solutions providers such as business development contacts within tolling systems organisations, and the organisers reserve the right to refuse applications.
