BPA AOS Conference 2019

 AOS Conference

The AOS conference 2019 has been hailed as a great success by those who travelled to Birmingham for the second annual event for BPA operators.

 Association President Zulfi Ali made his opening address to an audience of more than 100 people.  The day was filled with opportunities to find solutions to common challenges and discussions around how members can help shape the future of the sector.

 There was much audience participation with the issues and topics presented, especially around the Parking (Code of Conduct) Bill as the conference welcomed Sarah McLean, bill manager at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to provide an update on its current status.

 Richard Walker, from the North Essex Parking Partnership, spoke of how the Positive Parking Agenda (PPA) is reaching out across the industry by encouraging the private sector to sign up too.

 The end of the conference saw Fabrice Muamba take to the stage for what was a truly inspirational talk. He told the tale of his amazing life, from refugee to professional football player – a career cruelly cut short when he suffered a massive heart attack during a game between Bolton and Spurs in 2012. After taking questions, he left the audience with this advice: ‘Enjoy this moment on earth – if there is something you want to do, go for it.’

From an exhibitors, and sponsors, perspective, the AOS conference was brilliant, we spoke to lots of people, many we knew and we met quite a few new contacts, so the objective of the day was met. The sessions were interesting and informative too, so well done to the AOS team for putting it together.

The AOS conference provides a good platform to meet and share best practice with other operators. The slido app was very useful and allows the less forward attendees to ask questions.
