Welcome to PIE 2014 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare!
The Future of Parking, Today.
March 16-19, 2014
Hyatt Regency O'Hare, Rosemont (Chicago)
The parking event where you talk to vendors, network with other industry professionals and see the best presentations in the business.
Parking Today is excited to announce the return of the Parking Industry Exhibition (PIE) to Chicago in 2014. After hearing the comments from our exhibitors and attendees, PIE 2014 returns to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont. PIE is all about networking, and having the exhibition, seminars, and social events all in one place, adds a convenience not found when the hotel, exhibits, and session are in separate venues. This upscale hotel offers an ideal environment for networking and the best of accommodations. The Hyatt’s Grand Ballroom offers a huge exhibit hall, nearby seminar and presentation rooms, and a common area where you can see PIE’s New Product Showcase.
Our aim is to continue to create an intimate atmosphere where PIE exhibitors and attendees get together to discuss business with other parking professionals from throughout the country and abroad. After all, that is what PIE events are all about. Our job is to connect you with your potential buyers.
With “The Future of Parking, Today” as its theme, PIE 2014 will feature a keynote presentation from noted parking futurists discussing how the face of parking in America and the world is evolving to reflect changing ideas and attitudes of just what “parking” means to us all.
As in previous years, we at PIE continue to listen to what vendors and attendees say they want out of an event. Attendees want to learn about your products and services without being overwhelmed by bright lights and hoopla. Keeping it simple and intimate offers exhibitors and attendees the opportunity to really communicate in a more enjoyable atmosphere.
PIE 2014 seminars continue to evolve and grow in order to better serve attendees. PIE 2014 will ‘focus’ on sectors of the parking industry; municipalities, universities, airports and commercial parking operations. PIE’s famous ‘Boot Camp’ will be held at the beginning of the event to better prepare those new to the industry for the exhibition and seminars.
Parking Today’s Experts Panel brings a new concept of information sharing to PIE 2014. Here is your opportunity to listen to and learn from your fellow peers in parking. PIE has developed a forum where you will hear from the parking administrators, equipment manufacturers or service providers on the featured topic all in one place on one stage. After the presentation, follow the presenter of your choice for an intimate question and answer session where your individual concerns are addressed in detail.
As always, PIE 2014 seminars do not conflict with the trade show, thereby eliminating downtime and ensuring all attendees have an opportunity to spend time on the show floor.
Start your St. Patrick’s Days’ celebration early with Speed Networking! This fun filled gathering will be returning with a new twist to add to the fun of this quick way to meet new people at PIE. We’re adding a wine and beer bar! Taking place just ahead of this years’ St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail Party, Speed Networking will be more fun than ever. Reserve your seat at this great opportunity for exhibitors to meet many attendees in a fun “speed dating” formatted forum.
The evening's main event will be our PIE Cocktail Party, St. Patrick’s Day version. This party is the stuff of legend and we will be holding it again, but with a slightly green theme. Have a green beer and don’t miss this great opportunity to meet and talk to attendees in a distinct Irish setting.
Additional amenities at the show include, a ‘buffet style’ lunch service on the show floor with a variety of sandwiches, pizza, salads, and desserts. Lunch Vouchers are included for exhibitors and paid attendees.
Make your plans to attend today and see you at PIE 2014 in Chicago!
