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.
PIE 2017 will feature a multi-day session for On-Street Parking Management by Paul Barter, Adjunct Associate Professor in the LKY School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore (NUS) where he teaches on urban transport policy. In addition, Dr. Mark Goulston, bestselling author and speaker, will channel Steve Jobs with his Whoa, Wow, Hmmm, Yes presentation. Rounding out the Keynote presentations will be Barefoot Wine founder and motivational speaker Michael Houlihan as he shares his approach to business that looks at products and services from a slightly different point of view.
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!
