CUTA Fall Conference and Transit Show

Event Type: 
Conference

We are delighted to partner with Metro Vancouver’s TransLink as our Host to bring you CUTA's Fall Conference, “INSPIRING SUSTAINABLE CHANGE”, taking place November 5-9th, 2016. You’ve heard the talk about big changes coming to public transportation and urban mobility: changing technology, changing climate, changing demographics, and changing customer expectations to name a few.

With the quality programming and networking opportunities you’ve come to expect, along with a second RAILconnect feature, this conference is changing focus and looking to respond to both today’s demands and tomorrow’s possibilities. Be a part of the conversation, the debate and inspiration by joining industry leaders in transit at CUTA’s Fall Conference.

SCAM ALERT

Notice Regarding Unauthorized Hotel Booking Agencies

It has come to CUTA's attention that a third party convention and Exhibition housing service is soliciting our members, claiming to offer cheaper hotel rates than we have negotiated for conferences. We are issuing a recommendation to anyone planning to attend CUTA conferences and who wish to book at the host hotel, the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver, only to do so through the hotel link on our website.

Protect yourself!

Please be suspicious of anyone calling you or emailing to say that they are representing CUTA as a convention housing service or housing agency. We have not hired a third party to sell hotel rooms on our behalf and the agency which was brought to our attention is based in the US. There is a risk of members losing any deposits paid to third parties and even to having credit cards compromised.

Don’t respond to unsolicited emails, texts or calls offering accommodations at very low prices. Remember, don’t click on any links within these emails and texts, or open any attachments, as they may lead to malicious websites or downloads.
 

Please report any contact you may receive from a third party in writing to Paulina Cadena, Events Planner
