The 2011 MSTPA Conference is just around the corner in the Bluegrass State! On March 14-16, the University of Kentucky and the Lexington Parking Authority will team up to host us at the Crowne Plaza - The Campbell House in Lexington, KY. Exhibitors from across the U.S. and attendees from many universities and municipalities will meet for three days of meetings, leadership discussions, networking, special events and behind the scenes tours of the area.

Dr. Barbara Chance of Chance Management will be the Keynote Speaker and is one example of the excellent line-up of speakers we are proud to offer this year.  Topics will range from parking enforcement to customer service, from marketing to technology, from transportation demand management to garage lighting and maintenance.  In addition, case studies will give you an inside view of the efforts to coordinate parking, transit and special events during last year's World Equestrian Games in Lexington.  Visit the MSTPA Conference Page for a detailed agenda. This is sure to be an exciting and informative conference for all who attend!
