A review of the BPA Annual Conference 2017

 Annual Conference

The BPA Annual Conference took place on Thursday 5 October at Westminster's Grand Central Hall, and what a day it was!

The Conference focused on exploring ways to further raise standards and improve consistency, promoting partnership working within the sector, and looking at how we can change the public’s perception by creating a more positive parking experience.

Some notables:

  • Steve Gooding, Director, RAC Foundation gave an opening address on the part we play in creating an improved parking experience
  • The morning started with an interactive panel session, bringing together a wealth of knowledge from both the private and public sectors, to explore how the parking profession needs to work together to improve existing standards and create new ones as part of a positive parking agenda
  • Mid-morning, we had two streams focusing on positive partnerships and how data and technology are influencing the shape of things to come across the parking landscape
  • The Police Federation joined us to discuss their campaign "Believe in Blue". This initiative was used to highlight and celebrate why British policing is the best in the world, and reinvigorate public support for police officers. We drew on the parallels with the parking sector and addressed what we could learn from their experience
  • Michael Caulfield, one of the UK’s leading sport psychologists, steered the day as our facilitator. An expert in his field, Michael captured the key messages from across the day, focusing throughout on a positive mind set and the ways in which we, as a sector, can take responsibility for the direction we take in achieving our goals. He then wrapped up proceedings with an informative keynote speech which left everyone feeling inspired.
