Join us for the second annual Future of Travel Mobility Conference

On September 20th, U.S. Travel Association will host the second annual “The Future of Travel Mobility” conference at Union Station in Washington D.C. This unique gathering brings together global business leaders in travel, transportation and technology, elected and appointed government officials, policymakers and policy influencers.

Through in-depth, thought-provoking dialogue, we will examine the critical issues shaping travel mobility’s future – and the policies needed to seize the opportunities before us – including:

Sustainable Travel

Throughout the travel industry, businesses and destinations are working to lower carbon emissions and reduce their environmental impact. What obstacles must be overcome to make travel more sustainable? Where should EV charging infrastructure be built to ease range anxiety among travelers and ensure travel destinations aren’t left behind? How can travel sectors work together to realize a more sustainable future?

Seamless and Secure Travel

New technologies such as biometrics and touchless digital technology hold the promise of creating a frictionless and more secure travel experience—from airport security to curbside pick-up to hotel check-in. How can policymakers, transportation leaders, hospitality and other travel partners work together to create seamless solutions for travelers? How can trusted traveler programs be improved and screening processes be streamlined? As technologies evolve, how do we address privacy and equity concerns?

Innovative and Emerging Travel

Cutting-edge modes of transportation will transform the ways travelers move to and around destinations. How might these innovations create a more enjoyable and comfortable travel experience? What could they mean for destinations and attractions? What policies are needed to support new transportation modes?

We look forward to seeing you September 20 at Union Station.
