To All Vendors

To all venders,

Indiana IMSA and the National IMSA just wanted to thank you again for your support with booths and technical presentations. The Indiana section again had great turnout at the: Crown Plaza, 2501 S. High School Rd, Indianapolis at the old airport.

2019 Attendees were represented:
17 - Cities from IN, IL, OH, KY, MI 6 - States districts from IN, OH 17 -contractors
3 - Counties
5
– consultants/companies
12- Vendors

This represented those that visited the technical sessions and attended classes. We had 254 students in the 5 days of certification. We presented: Work Zone, Traffic Signal 1, 2field, 3field and Construction, Signs & Markings 1, and Signs 2, Markings 2, Roadway lighting, and a Troubleshooting and Networking class. There was a good representation at the banquet, some 57 attended. The 8 tech secessions had some average 43, most attended secession 60 and least attended with 32. All technical presentation (secessions) are NOT to be a sales pitch but troubleshooting or advantages to use to help trouble shoot or avoid issues that would hurt performance.

Thanks again, and hope to see you next year and those that were not able to make this year’s event, we hope to see you at next year’s.
