2018 Brings a new focus to our seminars. There will be general sessions of interest to all attendees, plus specialized tracks designed to inform specific industry sectors.

Municipalities – Yes, we can (and will) discuss citation management and on street fee collection, but we will also feature new technology, apps which reserve and allow on line payment, plus a feature on how to move from on-street “free” to on-street “Pay” without causing riots and other problems. 

University and Hospital Campus Parking – University Parking Managers have unique problems and face daily issues related to student, staff, and visitor parking. These sessions are tailored to fit those concerns and bring clarity to a difficult segment of our industry.

Airports – PIE 2018 takes off with sessions on airport parking. It’s a big number at our nation’s airports, but its under attack from Uber and Lyft. What can be done about these pesky competitors, plus what technology is there to take airport parking to the next level.

Shopping Center and Business Park parking – This track takes you to upmarket valet operations, parking guidance, and wayfinding design. Parking Loyalty programs, reservation apps, and revenue collection technology can make or break your operation.

Commercial Parking Operators – As the list of confirmed speakers expands, you will be treated to the brightest and the best to help you rethink and survive the upheavals that are coming. The goal isn’t to simply survive, its to excel.

Technology Camp – Tech for newbies and not so new to parking

To understand Parking Technology, you need to know a bit about how technology, the internet, communications, and data storage works. There are buzz words like “ip” or “cloud based” or “on line” that have specific meanings. They are often used and the people who use them don’t know what they mean.  Technology Camp will prepare you for the upcoming sessions, and for your return to a technology laden parking operation.

Presented by :  Tom Wunk, Vice President, PARCS Strategy and Sales, T2 Systems, Inc., Paul Chan, Director Sales Engineering, Vimoc Technologies, Grant Dawson, VP of IT,  T2 Systems, Inc. and Jeff Sparrow, Senior Account Manager, Park Assist
