2020 IPTA Conference

After exhaustive ongoing discussions and careful consideration, the IPTA Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s 2020 IPTA 57th Annual School Transportation Conference & Trade Show.

The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and board members will always be our highest priority. With the ongoing public health threat due to COVID-19 unlikely to subside any time soon, canceling the annual conference was the responsible thing to do for the safety of everyone involved.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 IPTA 57th Annual School Transportation Conference & Trade Show. The dates for next year’s conference are July 19th-21st 2021. We will persevere, stay safe everyone!
