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.

The recent changes will be reflected in a new brochure 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.

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 2012.

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.
