Record Breaking Attendance at This Year's MS2 DOT User Conference

Tuesday, October 17, 2023

MS2 and Tennessee DOT recently co-hosted our 5th bi-annual DOT User Conference with record-breaking attendance.  More than 50 people attended the Conference including 43 DOT Staff, from 14 different DOTs and 2 Staff Members from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The 2-day event was hosted at the renowned Opryland Hotel and Resort in Nashville and concluded with a networking event at the historic Nashville Underground, the largest indoor venue on the famous Broadway strip.

MS2 introduced this direct Peer Exchange in 2015 to allow DOT participants to share best practices and enable them to continue to make advancements in their programs and facilitate relationships amongst their DOT Peers.

A great example of this exchange, was shared by David Freidenfeld, Director of Data Management and Traffic Analysis, at Texas DOT, regarding his case study presentation on MS2’s Publication Database, “Publication Database has completely revolutionized the way we do business..." said Freidenfeld, " is a game changer.”

From MS2’s founder, Ben Chen, “We greatly appreciate the DOT and FHWA participation and open dialogue throughout the event.  From this, we can use their direct input to continue to make enhancements to our system, so that we provide the best possible user experience.”

This highly valued DOT User Conference is hosted every other year, so as not to interfere with NaTMEC (National Travel Monitoring Exposition and Conference).  Would your DOT like to host the next MS2 DOT User Conference with your DOT Peers? 

If so, please reach out to MS2!

Thank you to all who attended and participated in this year’s event and thank you for making it the best possible DOT User Conference to date!
