The first parking industry event of 2017 offers you a chance to see the latest and greatest parking products and services at the show for ALL parking industry professionals.
The Parking Industry Exhibition for 2017 returns to its home at the Hyatt Regency near Chicago’s O’Hare airport and although the venue will be familiar, it will be unlike any trade event you have attended. We are changing everything to make it more responsive to those attending from different parking market segments.
We are focusing on Municipalities, University and Hospital Campus Parking, Shopping and Business Development, and Parking Commercial Operations. Each group will have a series of seminars, presentations, and expert meetings honed to their particular needs. It will be like a Forum for each within the event.
We have not forgotten the needs of our attendees. Technology will be stressed, but focused on each market segment. No need for a shopping center to be concerned about citation management, or a city on campus permit fulfillment. However, there is no question that cutting edge technology is intriguing our industry. Whether its clouds, apps, pay by cell, parking guidance, LPR, LED, or chip cards, our industry wants to know. PIE 2017 will be the place.
For exhibitors we are offering something new, too. We will be experimenting with programmed in booth appointments so attendees can make appointments with you and be in your booth at specific times. They will be enticed by offering substantial discounts on their registration fees if they make appointments with exhibitors.
As in the past, seminars will never conflict with trade show hours. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to meet potential customers and present your wares and services. Our networking events are places where you meet attendees in relaxed sessions. Every day, more networking – Coffee in the morning, Breaks at midday, and cocktails in the evening. You skip those events at your peril.
PIE 2017 will show that we are Engaged, Dynamic, and Instant. Our media products will promote PIE. The changes you see will make it an even better event, and our daily on line updates will create the buzz you need.
PIE 2017 is the place to be!
