Every year, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) holds its Clinical Congress, a conference providing education and training for surgeons, surgical team members, residents and medical students. It is an important conference covering cutting-edge surgical research, with presentations on the latest surgical topics and hands-on learning opportunities. The 2016 Clinical Congress was held October 16-20 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
In the District of Columbia, conference attendees can find some of our country’s finest accommodations, restaurants and convention facilities. They can also find some of the most challenging traffic patterns on the East Coast, with winding one-way streets and traffic tie-ups even on the best traffic days.
Event planners for the ACS Clinical Congress understand that they need to rely on a transportation provider that is very familiar with the traffic patterns of large congested cities like Washington DC. That is why they trust Event Transportation Systems (ETS).
ETS Goes Where This Client Goes
For many years now, ETS has served as the transportation management partner for ACS, no matter where their Clinical Congress takes place. True to our slogan, we go where they go. Recent ACS meetings have spanned the country, from San Francisco, to Chicago, to our nation’s capital.
At the 2016 Clinical Congress, Event Transportation Systems provided full transportation management, using our experienced team aided by our GPS technology to track shuttles in real time. ETS operated Shuttles on six routes, moving more than 10,000 attendees between 31 designated Clinical Congress hotels and the Washington Convention Center. In addition, ETS provided sponsorship support by producing and installing shuttle graphics for exhibitors who wanted high-impact exposure for their products and services.
ACS is not the only client that relies on ETS year after year. Many clients choose us because we provide ground transportation services in cities throughout North America and they know they can count on a professional and courteous experience every time they move their conference to a new city. We are one part of the puzzle they don’t have to worry about.
If you have a meeting, conference, special event or convention coming up in 2017 or beyond, contact Event Transportation Systems.
