The first parking industry event of 2016 was an overwhelming success! See you next year in Chicago at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, IL. March 5-8, 2017.
The Parking Industry Exhibition 2016 brings a number of changes to the event. First of all, it is the culmination of 20 years of parking publishing excellence for Parking Today. Second, it brings a new one time venue, Las Vegas, to celebrate two decades of parking publishing.
We have experimented with new formats for our seminars in the past, this year we are honing them. 2015 saw the most people in our sessions ever, and 2016 will guarantee standing room only. We are going after quality rather than quantity and plan to promote those topics that attendees have told us they want to hear.
Number one, Technology. 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 2016 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 not conflict with trade show hours. You 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 2016 will stress 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 2016 is the place to be – reserve your booth today.
