Cristina Lynn attended the Parking Industry Exhibition held in Chicago earlier this month on behalf of the Parking Association of Australia.
The exhibition took place over three days showcasing a wide range of suppliers with many representatives from access control, parking guidance, ticket manufacturers, LED lighting and on-street technology. A very interesting group of speakers from universities, municipalities and consultants presented case study based situations that resonated with the delegates’ own issues and concerns.
An international panel of speakers comprising Sandra Smith (Canada), Kevin Warwood (New Zealand), Peter Guest (UK) and Cristina, discussed parking policy issues in our respective parts of the world.
A Women In Parking reception allowed for furthering discussions regarding a potential Australian Chapter of this organisation.
John Van Horne and his team from the magazine Parking Today did a great job in organizing this annual event and were everywhere the whole time ensuring it all went smoothly. There was nothing humble about this PIE!
On her way home Cristina stopped off in New York to review the work being done there by parking enforcement officers!
