Global Parking Association Leaders (GPALs)

GPALS_Logo_2017_RotterdamEstablished by IPI in 2012, Global Parking Association Leaders (GPALs) is a group of parking association leaders from around the world. They meet annually at the GPALs Summit. The Summit is hosted by IPI at its annual IPI Conference & Expo during even-numbered years and by the European Parking Association (EPA) Congress and alternating parking associations during odd-numbered years. GPALs will meet in 2017 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. 

International Parking Survey

GPALS SurveyDuring the summer of 2013, many GPALs participants joined together to conduct a survey of parking trends among their members. The survey was translated into five languages and distributed to parking professionals through parking associations throughout the world. The aim of the project was to identify trends in the parking industry within participating countries and then compare and analyze for differences and similarities with other countries. Surveys were distributed in July and August 2013 and results were presented at the GPALs Summit in Ireland on September 11 at the EPA Congress, hosted by the Irish Parking Association in Dublin, Ireland.
