I’m now in Amsterdam at the Intertraffic Trade Fair. Through a desire to work with our hotel and a last minute date change, we overlapped PIE with Intertraffic this year. I did my “two places at the same time” trip and hopped a plane on Tuesday night for the Dutch city and the largest parking and transportation show on earth.
This is simply unbelievable. There are over 750 exhibitors and 25,000 attendees over the four days of the show. In the European tradition, the show is open from 10 AM to 6 PM…whew – but you need the time.
We have a booth and a local staffer to help me. She staffs the booth while I wander around, take pictures and meet old friends. By the time its over I will have met with Scheidt and Bachmann, Skidata, Zeag, Magnetic Automation, Parkeon, Vinci Park, Schweers, plus a cast of 1000s who drop by the booth to chat and renew old friendships.
Watch the May Parking Today for pictures and comments on new innovations, and there are quite a few, I have seen at the show.
Gotta run, its almost 10 AM and the rush is about to begin.
