A Light Bulb Moment for These LED Times by Bonnie Watts, CEM
As parking professionals, we cram a lot into the workday. From reviewing documents and responding to emails to leading meetings and conducting interviews, to say we’re busy is an understatement. Now add to that the pressure to stay on top of emerging industry trends and technologies. Who has the time?
You will, at the 2016 IPI Conference & Expo, May 17-20, Nashville, Tenn.
What would normally take hours upon hours (upon hours) to meet with more than 250 suppliers, manufacturers, consultants, and innovators instead is condensed into four days. Exhibitors bring the latest and greatest parking and transportation products and services to the IPI Expo, the largest parking event in the world.
With more than 12 hours dedicated to the show floor, you can talk face-to-face with exhibitors, take part in demonstrations, and try a product or service firsthand. It’s the best opportunity to see where the parking industry is headed and what’s likely to come next.
If you’re looking for real insight with an emphasis on technology, join a TECHtalk on the show floor. Presenters will deliver 45-minute talks on focused topics to give you a deeper understanding of what technology is available and how to best implement it in your organization.
With any luck — and a little advanced planning of the floor plan and current exhibitor list — you’ll experience that magical moment when you find a solution that’s going to make your day more productive and your projects deliver on time, on budget, and on target.
A year’s worth of meetings in a handful of days. Now that’s a bright idea.
