1:00 pm-4:00 pm Boot Camp-Airports


Parking is the number two revenue generator (behind landing fees) at airports. It’s complex. It’s political, and it’s important. Tis course looks at parking technology, revenue control, systems design, working with operators, the relationship with “off airport” parking operations, and more. Rick Decker, MPLS St Paul International Airport Jeff Courteau, MPLS St Paul International Airport


Boot Camp-Cities


Han Solo told Chewbacca to “fly casual, just don’t LOOK like you are flying casual.” When you run parking for a city you oſten find yourself in the position of providing a major income stream for the “general fund” but not “looking” like you are a money generator. Enforcing parking isn’t popular, but one of a city’s most valuable assets must be protected. Julie Dixon, Serco


Boot Camp-Universities


Yes, there is a difference. If you are from an institution of higher education find out what those differences are and how to work within the complex maze of egos, traditions, financial stress, and political pressure. Tis three hour course focuses like a rifle shot on the issues of making and enforcing the parking rules at colleges and universities. Robert Milner, University of Baltimore, Maryland

9:00 AM Te Economics of Parking Garage Construction


Te past two years have been a rough ride in the construction business, and parking is no exception. Te numbers have been bleak. Will they continue to be so, or is there proverbial light at the end of this very dark tunnel? PIE’s resident expert on construction numbers reviews what happened, and makes his usual “on the mark” prediction as to what will happen in garage construction, maintenance, and the installation of on and off street parking technology. Dale Denda, Parking Market Research

It examines why we fall for such fads, even when we should know beter. Te desire to "be green" can cloud our judgment, causing us to place things that make us appear green ahead of actions that may be socially invisible yet environmentally responsible. He will be speaking how these affect the parking industry and what we can do to get ahead of the curve. Todd Myers, Director of the Center for the Environment


11:00 AM-2:30 PM Tradeshow


2:30 PM Pay by Cell Phone


You have heard about it for years. But aren’t sure. Will people actually go to all the trouble to sign up, and then actually use the technology?

Frank Ching, City of Santa Monica & Pay by Cell Companies


2:30 PM Run your Garage with No Personnel


Nada, Zip, Zero. Some companies are doing it now. Operators have put their toe in the water and find they like it. Does service suffer, or actually get beter. Te garage is in Seatle, the person answering the intercom is in Austin Texas. Some think that to survive, parking operations must move in this direction. Clyde Wilson, The Parking Network


3:30 PM Change your Lighting, Go from Bright to “Green” Sustainability is what parking is all about, isn’t it? It’s PC to be Green. No question there. But is it really worth the investment to go to a lighting system that uses less electricity? Is the science really “setled?”


Larry Cohen, Lancaster Parking Authority & Lighting Companies


3:30 PM Sensors – in the Street


Yes, these are the “hockey puck” like devices that are buried in the street and tell you when the on street space is occupied. Some say they pay for themselves in six months, others say they don’t really work. What do you say? Don’t know? In this session you will hear from users, manufacturers, and skeptics.
