The Lake Erie Section of the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) is proud to host the 2018 ASHE National Conference at The Westin Cleveland Downtown in Cleveland, Ohio. The conference will attract over 500 public and private sector design professionals, vendors, contractors and guests from across the country, and provide a forum for networking and education on topics relevant to the transportation industry. The agenda is filled with informative technical sessions, social events and networking opportunities.

This ASHE conference marks the 60th anniversary of the organization and will provide opportunities for companies and attendees to network and build strong professional relationships. The Westin Cleveland Downtown will host the conference and welcome guests to our dynamic city. The Westin is located within walking distance to Lake Erie’s waterfront, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Progressive Field, Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland Browns Stadium, the Great Lakes Science Center, USS Cod Submarine, Playhouse Square, Terminal Tower, and our newly renovated Public Square.

Our planning committee has carefully selected the technical sessions, guest tours, and entertainment for the 2018 ASHE National Conference. There is an opportunity to earn up to 9.5 professional development hours during the Friday and Saturday technical sessions. With golf planned for Thursday and social events each evening, you will have ongoing opportunities to connect, collaborate and create relationships with other ASHE members from across the country. Our off-site entertainment will include an evening at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and our guest program is filled with exciting Cleveland destinations such as our cultural district in the University Circle neighborhood, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and various other sight-seeing tours. If you are not a golfer or have time to explore, Cleveland is home to the first shopping mall (The Cleveland Arcade built in 1890), “A Christmas Story“ House, the World’s Largest Rubber Stamp, World’s Largest Outdoor Chandelier, Lakeview Cemetery with President Garfield’s Tomb and Lakeview Dam, Jerry Siegel’s House (the birthplace of Superman), and many other exciting attractions.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities and sponsorship levels were developed to meet a broad range of marketing budgets so your company can be recognized as a conference partner furthering the goals of ASHE. Exhibit space is also available to showcase your company and allow attendees to interact with you on a personal level.

We look forward to seeing you in Cleveland.
