Parking Today Media - Reaching the Entire Parking Industry
Parking Today Media
more than a magazine
Parking Today Magazine is the flagship of Parking Today Media. With two decades of service to the parking industry, the monthly publication brings parking news and features to more than 15,000 readers by direct mail and to over 10,000 monthly through the Parking Today and Parknews.biz web sites.
Monthly editorial features include Editor John Van Horn’s column, Point of View, Melissa Sterzick’s Amateur Parker, and Peter Guest’s piece on parking in the UK and Europe. Also featured is the parking marketplace, the most current and extensive parking event calendar, two pages of current parking news, and Periodic articles on auditing and operations.
Each issue of PT has a dozen articles covering the parking gamut from design, construction, technology, parking events, outstanding parking operations, and personalities.
Annually Parking Today publishes its People and Products in Parking Directory, listing more than 10,000 parking pros and their contact information. It has become the “go to” book for finding information about the industry, its organizations, and vendors.
PT is on line and each issue can be read at the webside a good three weeks before it is delivered by mail.

Parking Industry Expo (PIE)
The Parking Industry Expo is parking’s premier trade event. With more than 1,00 parking pros in attendance and over 100 vendors make PIE the fastest growing event in the industry.
In 2018, the exhibition returns to its home in Chicago and now begins on Monday and ends on Thursday. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, IL.
The three day event brings the industry’s leading speakers together for the most current seminars on operations, technology, revenue control, and personnel management.
PIE is known for its networking events and ‘speed networking’ was no exception. Attendees face off across a table to quickly exchange contact information and begin discussion on needs and solutions. These were followed up later on the exhibit hall floor.
Networking continues at an evening reception held in a way to facilitate discussion. 2015 featured a Casino night where attendees met and talked around roulette and blackjack tables. 2016 will bring a carnival atmosphere and plenty of time for meeting, talking, and relaxing.
The Parking Industry Expo stresses quality seminars, excellent exhibits, and fantastic networking. See you in Chicago!
“It was the best networking event evah” noted one exhibitor.
“We could talk, have some fun, and there wasn’t music blasting everywhere you had to scream over. PIE folks know how to put on an event.
