MEET: Our October Panelists

FROM SCOOTERS TO ROCKETS: The Future of Transportation We are honored to confirm our panelists for the upcoming MEET ITALY event on October 10th. MEET ITALY and the Italian Cultural Institute Los Angeles will host an industry focus on the new changing landscape in the global transportation platform. As new technologies disrupt entrenched models and change personal behaviors, we all need to adapt as citizens and investors. We have assembled a panel of experts to shed light on the new dynamics and to engage with our members in a high level Q&A session. The discussion will be moderated by Francesco Cantatore, Senior Program Director at HNTB and expert on high speed train infrastructures.
