MAPA's Fall Conference a Tremendous Success
MAPA Held its annual Fall Conference on October 24 at the University of Baltimore where the theme for the event was "A Peek into Parking's Future."
Over 100 attendees listened to an informative presentation by our Keynote Speaker, Michael Klein on the Shoup Model: The High Cost of Free Parking", Mobile Apps, Risk Management, and Cloud Computing. Both Christine Banning, National Parking Association and Henry Wallmeyer, International Parking Institute gave outstanding presentations on Parking Trends and IPI's Parking Progress Report and Parking Power Toolbox.

Along with the timely and informative speaker sessions, conference goers had the opportunity to mingle with and speak to 21 different exhibitors that represented products and services that included efficient lighting, Meters, EV charging, revenue control and access, facility maintenance, way finding, and much, much more.
Lastly, as always, MAPA events are a great place to network and the Fall Conference was no exception. There were attendees, speakers and exhibitors from twelve different states representing universities, governmental & municipal agencies, private operators, and vendors. The diversity of the participants was fantastic and made for a great place to find new opportunities regardless of what sector of the parking industry one was from.
MAPA continues to raise the bar for its conferences with powerful programming and excellent participation among its members, so mark your calendar for the next Fall Conference on October 23, 2013 at the University of Baltimore!
