What is a TransitSlam? It’s transit’s answer to Pecha Kucha. A TransitSlam is an exciting event for presenters and audience members alike. During the event, you are given exactly 6 minutes to talk about a transit issue of your choice. The twist is that they must complete their presentation in 20 slides at 18 seconds apiece. This format allows for an entertaining yet educational experience that leaves audiences (hopefully) raving.
Event Details: The evening will consist of 8 presentations, back to back, preceded by a mixer. Prizes will be awarded to the top two slammers, judged by audience applause. This event will be hosted at TransitCenter, 1 Whitehall Street, 17th Floor, New York, NY 10004. Doors open with appetizers and drinks available at 6PM, program begins at 6:30 PM.
