Parking Industry Exhibition - The Parking Event for 2018
The Parking Industry Exhibition returns to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare for 2018!
The Parking Industry Exhibition 2018 continues to change and grow. It’s not your Parent’s PIE any more.
Attendees told us that they felt networking was the number one reason to come to PIE. In 2018 we continue to expanded our networking program to enable attendees not only to meet with others in their field, but also to meet with exhibitors in a relaxed atmosphere.
We have also found that exhibitors find each other at PIE so that complimentary companies can begin to work together and form important and lasting relationships. In keeping with this we will institute a number of programs where companies and attendees can meet and expand their horizons.
Parking Incubator – New companies often need help from more established ones. We will reach out to them over the six months prior to PIE and then notify exhibitors of their needs and concerns. If there is a match, we will provide private meeting space where these complimentary companies can network and perhaps “make a deal.”
Appointment Module – For exhibitors we are offering something new as well. 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.
Parking Today’s Speakers Corner – Located in the Exhibit Hall, this gives attendees and vendors an opportunity to meet with speakers after their presentations and continue discussions on the trade show floor. This ensures that attendees come into the hall after the seminars.
Networking Breakfasts – Located adjacent to seminar sessions, join us early on Monday and Tuesday for a cup of coffee or tea and to network with other attendees from Higher Education, Airports, Municipalities, Shopping Centers/Developers, Operators to meet informally and network prior to the daily sessions beginning.
Speed Networking – Its fun, its fast, and it gives you an opportunity to meet attendees and exhibitors in an informal session. Plus, there will be adult beverages to help lubricate the discussions.
Our Famous Monday Night Party – Come and have a good time, meet and greet, and get to know exhibitors and attendees in a terrific party atmosphere. We ensure that the music is not overwhelming, the dancing just wild enough, and the drinks, well, you know.
Become an exhibitor at the Parking Industry Exhibition, and see what all the buzz is about. PIE targets attendees from all over the world with a price point that allows for your buyers to attend without breaking the bank. The focus of PIE is on business. Because the founder and owner of the show comes from the supplier side of parking, we know what you come to a show for is to meet your current and potential customers and that is the opportunity that we provide. The show has been best described as intimate. No company has ever had more than a double booth because the sales come from the interaction with customers where they learn about your product at the show and see it where it can truly shine, out in the field.
