In autumn 1980, the members of the various European parking associations met in Vienna for the first time in order to find a way of co-operating on an international level. As a result of this meeting, an executive committee was founded which was to prepare the foundation of the European Parking Association.
In autumn 1983, 9 European parking associations met in Madrid to institute the EPA. Since that time, there have been 16 national European parking associations which have joined up in the European Parking Association. Thus, the EPA has become the umbrella organisation for all the European carpark enterprises which are members of their respective national associations.
In March 1989, "Parking Trend International" was published for the first time. It is the Europe-wide organ of the EPA and contains reports on parking business in Europe as well as on parking business in the individual national associations. In January 2010, the magazine was successfully relaunched.
Every two years, the EPA hosts an international congress where perspectives on stationary traffic and traffic development in the cities of Europe are discussed. Renowned personalities from politics and science are among the guests and the active participants at the EPA congress, which additionally offers an opportunity for manufacturers, suppliers and others active in this field to promote their products and services at the accompanying shows.
