RIDE THE TRANSIT WAVE TO DAYTONA BEACH ...
You are invited to the Florida Public Transportation Association's 38th Annual Conference and EXPO at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort and Ocean Center adjacent to the world famous Daytona Beach. Appropriately, "Ride the Transit Wave" is the conference theme.
This year's Host Property is Votran -- Volusia County's public transit system.
Our 2012 conference promises to be an interesting and enjoyable event with a substantial and diverse program including topics for everyone in the industry. There will be sessions on planning, operations, maintenance, marketing, financial management and professional development. We will also have important information to be passed on by our partners from the Florida Department of Transportation, the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged, the Florida Transportation Commission and the Federal Transit Administration.
At the traditional Tuesday evening Awards Banquet, we will be recognizing this year's best in Marketing and Safety, as well as honoring our Driver of the Year and Bus Mechanic of the Year. Finally, Florida's best transit systems will be recognized with the Innovation and Creativity Award and the Outstanding Public Transportation System Achievement Award.

The ever popular FPTA Conference Golf Tournament will be held Sunday afternoon at the LPGA International - a premier Daytona Beach golf club. Golfers can hit the practice range prior to the 1:00pm shotgun start. A Votran bus will be available to take golfers to and from the golf course. The bus will be leaving the hotel at 11:30am.
As an EXPO year, the spotlight will be on the FPTA Business Class members. As usual, our Business Class members' indoor exhibits will feature the latest in transit products and services. Also, for the first time the EXPO will feature indoor bus exhibits.
