Parking Consultants: 2010 in review

2010 was an exciting year
for us and, although it seems to have flown by, when we look at what we have
achieved it looks like at least we were not idle!

Working back, we close the
year with a new name “Parking & Traffic Consultants” to reflect our
additional service offering. As you may already be aware our team now includes
Andrew Morse, a qualified and experienced traffic engineer. The interest so far
from our existing and new clients indicates that this has been a very good
initiative and we look forward to further expanding this service in the coming
years. We have also taken the opportunity to give our blog an “official” name – “Wayfinding Forum” – as we now feel it is
mature and robust enough to stand on its own two feet.

Our blog subscribers have increased, but more
importantly the number of visits to the blog during 2010 (based on 11 months)
has risen exponentially from 8,026 in 2009 to 33,741! We are very proud of this
and we wish to thank our readers and our staff for this outstanding result. You
may be interested to look at the map below to see where our readers live: 

The recent changes will be
reflected in a new brochure (also available online here) and a new look website which we will be finalising over
the Christmas Holidays. The site name will change to but you will still be able to use the old name to reach us. Our email addresses
will remain unchanged.

From a business perspective
we have been involved in a wide range of projects in airports, hospitals,
universities, councils and shopping centres around the country, thus continuing
to expand our capabilities and experience. These in turn will ensure even
better outcomes for our clients.

As part of our commitment
to continuing professional education our consultants have attended conferences
held in various fields, including Intertraffic (held in Amsterdam in March
2010), being the biggest and most important international parking technology
exhibition, the Landside & Ground Transport Convention in Sydney and the
National Australian Airports Association Convention in Adelaide at which we
took part in a panel discussion on the challenges facing introduction of paid
parking in airports.

The largest commitment by
far for us this year was at the 12th Australian Parking Convention held in
Sydney in early November: we sponsored the photography over the duration of the
convention, we took an exhibition booth and also provided many hours of unpaid
work towards the organisation of the event, which included identifying the
venue, putting together the program of speakers, creating the sponsorship
packages and the exhibition layout, organising the social events and overall
project and financial management. 

Below are a few photos
taken during the event. 

This was certainly an
experience to remember…. Whilst the overall feedback from the participants was
positive we have taken on board a wide range of constructive comments which
will certainly be taken on board for the organisation of the 13th event in

In the meantime, I would
like to take this opportunity, on behalf of myself and the whole team, to wish
you and your families a very happy Christmas and here is to a successful and
prosperous 2011!

And finally, perhaps
something that might bring a smile and some holiday spirit to everyone – a
great video we found that made us laugh. We hope it does for you too!

All the best to you all for
the holiday season. 

Kind regards,
