Frequently Asked Questions

Are there plans to cancel the FTR Transportation Conference?

Our annual FTR Transportation Conference is set to kick off on September 13th in Indianapolis. Rest assured that we remain diligent in ensuring that the safety and security of our attendees, staff, and operational personnel remain the top priority.

Given that the event is nearly seven months away, we currently have no plans to cancel or postpone the FTR Transportation Conference as a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As we move ahead with planning and implementing the programming for the FTR Transportation Conference, we will continue to place high importance on facilitating measures that will ensure optimal health and sanitary conditions for everyone onsite during the event.

We are monitoring the effects of COVID-19 on the meeting and event industry, as well as monitoring guidance from global, federal, state, and local health officials, like the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control. We are also in communication with the Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Bureau concerning their ongoing experience and advice.
