Keynote Session

The Story of Parking - Professor James Woudhuysen

One of Europe’s most forthright and invigorating speakers on technology, James Woudhuysen is also professor of forecasting and innovation at London South Bank University. In “The Story of Parking” , he’ll take us on a whistle-stop tour from the Model T Ford to EV charging points and beyond. With feet firmly on the ground, James thrives on fertile paradoxes: yes, there’s a war on the car, but rumours of ‘Peak Car’ are greatly exaggerated…


Afternoon Sessions

State of the Nations

The road to recovery is never straightforward and the effects of the global pandemic have been felt in many different ways. With no guidebook on how to navigate these testing times, we must continue to adapt, innovate and learn from each other. Having already overcome a multitude of challenges, hear how rural, costal and urban areas intend to help get the nation moving again, support high street regeneration and embrace active travel initiatives.


Tangible Takeaways

Urban regeneration and the sustainable agenda. This session will bring you a series of speed presentations that will explore ways to capitalise on the unique opportunity we’ve been given to extend the role of parking into these areas. Speakers have 5/6 minutes to address the following statement: “In a post-COVID world, how will your product or service enable parking to be a part of urban regeneration and the sustainable agenda?”
