PIE 2019 – A Team Effort


PIE 2019 – A Team Effort

The Parking Industry Expo 2019’s success was the result of a team effort. I am gratified how the Parking Today group came together and performed flawlessly.

It was interesting to sit back and watch the 10 members of our team work to present an event that had raves from even the most particular critics. My personal thanks go to Marcy, Astrid, Kelley, Jordan, Paul, Robyn, Andy, Francine, Bob, and Peter who formed a fantastic group and went above and beyond to make this event happen.

We must also thank the sponsors and exhibitors without whom PIE could not exist. Thanks go particularly to the Platinum and Gold sponsors. We hope to see you all back next year at PIE 2020 in San Diego.

But there would be no PIE without the attendees. You brought out the best in our speakers, attended networking events, and yes, even partied a bit at our beach party. Thanks for being there and making PIE the parking event of the year.

With nearly 30 seminars, networking events, PIE’s largest exhibit hall, and a half day smart parking seminar, this year’s event brought new features to parking trade shows. Highlighting the opening was the first annual Parking Today Awards Breakfast honoring outstanding efforts in Parking Garage Design, Sustainability, Customer Service, and Technology.

Headlining the awards ceremony was the presenting of the lifetime achievement award to centenarian Larry Donoghue who brought down the house with his hilarious comments on ‘how to live to be 100.’

Thanks to all. See you next year in San Diego.
