Globalization of parking: people are people, but markets are very different. The 2015 PAG Conference & Tradeshow will show you how to expand your parking world. A Whole New World of Parking and Transportation is Emerging………..and the Industry Keeps on Making it Easier to Do It All. Welcome to the ever-changing, ever-expanding world of parking, transportation, technology and people……each needing the other to be successful!
The 2015 PAG Annual Conference & Tradeshow is ‘globalizing’ with the industry! Inspired by last year’s conference success, built on a solid foundation of parking professionals, and further set apart by an enthusiastic board, growing membership and vendors, we are ready for the All-New PAG 2015 Conference. We will continue to put distance between PAG and the “more of the same” conferences.
We are back – bigger and better – with an All-New 2015 PAG Conference & Tradeshow and YOU really need to be a part of this experience! Discover how people in parking improve their “every day” by experiencing new technology, new parking systems, new design, and new parking friends. Our educational sessions will discuss all of the parking issues that are ‘hot topics’ including transportation issues, parking globalization, LPR, the newest technology, sustainability, customer service and many more relevant topics.
Mark your calendar-April 22 – 24 and plan to meet your parking and transportation peers, develop new relationships, brag about your successes, and find out what other people in parking are doing!
