On the 21st-23rd April 2015, Parkex, Europe’s largest and most important parking event of the year showcased once again in Hall 5 at the NEC Birmingham. The event opened by BPA President (2014/2015), Ashley Bijster and PATROL’s, Councillor Jamie MacRae proved to be a tremendous success.
The prestigious British Parking Association event offers visitors the opportunity to meet and greet a wide variety of global suppliers. Attendees can learn about the latest parking products, services and technology, whilst exchanging ideas and best-practice advice from some of the industry’s top experts.
This year’s event was co-located with Traffex for a three day exhibition. As ever, in a joint year, the size and scale of the show was impressive, with early indicators suggesting a total attendance of 11,390, including footfall of 8,729 to Traffex and 2,661 to Parkex. This represents a 9% Traffex visitor increase on 2013.
Not only did the event provided a meeting point for the industry’s largest suppliers, but also a platform for leading parking and traffic brands to launch some of their latest products and services, featuring some innovative stand designs. A list of exhibitors can be viewed here.
The Parkex Hub took place for the second year and proved once again to be a valuable addition to the show, where a varied series of presentations, debates and discussions took place.
The British Parking Association and the entire Parkex Organising Team would like to say a big thank you to all the exhibitors, speakers, and visitors who attended Parkex this year, contributing to its success. Special thanks also go to the Parkex 2015 event partners, Barclays and PayByPhone.
Be sure to save the date to attend Parkex 2016, which will take place on the 15th and 16th of June. Next year’s show will, for the first time ever, be moving to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. This venue offers many benefits including an on-site hotel and entertainment – it is also scheduled to have its own train station in time for the show.
