Being a first time attendee at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting from 7-11 January 2018 in Washington, D.C. the first thing that strikes you, aside from the frigid temperatures of a northern hemisphere winter, is the sheer scale of this event. The venue is an enormous 4-level conference centre that spans over two city blocks and includes a major hotel adjacent to the conference centre. A facility of this scale is needed to accommodate the 13,000+ delegates attending the five day conference.

For the 2nd year in a row, the Hagley courts played host to the Abley versus Interpret netball match – and Christchurch put on a scorcher! It was a glorious day in the garden city, with temperatures hitting 33 degrees just before the teams took the court.
