PIE 2016 Featured Speakers Announced!

The Parking Industry Exhibition reaches out to dozens of experts in all areas of the Parking World. These are consultants, vendors, senior parking managers in cities and universities as well as parking operators and parking facility developers. We asked them to participate, we did not simply put out a “call for papers.” It’s much more difficult to develop a program this way, but it means that you will receive the best information from the finest sources available.
