Parking Industry Expo Slates Unique Changes to Expo Floor

Booth Sales Exceed Last Year – Nearly Sold Out





Los Angeles, CA – December 11, 2018 – The premiere parking event of 2019 finds itself even more attractive with the exhibit hall floor becoming a place where attendees can network, easily find the information they seek, and feel comfortable in the frenetic atmosphere found in exhibitions.




The Parking Industry Expo 2019 (PIE) will see knowledgeable “PIE Guides” located on the floor to answer questions and help attendees find the information they seek. “These are real people who will assist those needing it with directions and sometimes just a friendly greeting,” says Expo Manager, Eric Abel. “When the hall is closed, they will be located throughout the venue to provide information and assistance as to schedules, locations, and other pertinent information.”


“We are actively working with exhibitors to help them make their booths and displays more welcoming. The days of an exhibitor sitting in their booth reading the paper are over. We expect the exhibitors to provide an environment where attendees, who often are reluctant to enter the sales environment, will be comfortable and relaxed.”


In addition, attendees will be motivated to connect with each other and exhibitors on the exhibit hall floor and throughout the venue with cash and technology prizes being awarded to those who seek out and meet their colleagues in the industry. “The concept is a way to motivate connection and individual discussions throughout the four-day event.”


The exhibit hall schedule is also unique. Limited to two days, it does away with the ‘last day emptiness’ found so often in such events. Unlike other such meetings, PIE never schedules seminars or other events during exhibit hall hours. The attendees are never conflicted as to whether to visit an exhibit or a seminar.


The exhibit hall is within a few booths of being sold out 90 days before the show opens. Potential exhibitors should visit the PIE web site to see what is left.


The Parking Industry Expo is being held March 11-14, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare adjacent to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Find it on line at Contact: Eric Abel, or +1 310 390 5277 ext 1
