Parking & Property is the only conference dedicated to off-street parking.

The theme of this year’s event is “Smarter Car Parks”, with a focus on the latest technology, design ideas and management techniques. The conference showcases the best thinking on the planning, design, funding, upkeep and operation of parking facilities from both the UK and overseas.

The event, which is sponsored by USL StructureCare, will feature presentations by specialists in car park operation, property management, car park design and refurbishment, and contract law. It provides a chance to share in the latest thinking and best practice. 

Delegates will be able to network and see the latest systems and services during social sessions held in the supporting exhibition.

The day starts with a plenary session opened by Nigel Williams of consultant Parking Matters, who programmes the event. He will look at the increasing intelligence of car park operating systems.

The keynote presentation will be a presentation on the latest developments in airport parking by Steve Bogg, car park manager at Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL).

There will then be a presentation on retail parking by Claire O’Connor, car park operations manager at The Mailbox, Birmingham.

The use of market research to devise loyalty schemes which increase patronage will be discussed by Stuart Margetts, retail director of Springboard Research.

The way in which devices such as smart phones and sat-navs have transformed parking and travel will be highlighted by Eugene Tsyrklevich, founder of the award-winning Parkopedia parking information service.

The rest of the day splits into two streams: Smarter Systems or Smarter Design, Construction & Upkeep.

Smarter Systems:

The Smarter Systems strand will look at themes such as intelligent parking payment technologies and energy management systems. 

Paul Kelly and Siobahn O’Dwyer from lighting company Nualight will dispel some of the myths surrounding LED technology.

Keith Williams of parking equipment manufacturer WPS will discuss the latest smart payment systems for the off-street sector.

The use of intelligent and interactive lighting systems to create dynamic and attractive car park façades will be the theme of a paper by lighting designer Mark Sutton Vane. He will use the award-winning Talbot Road car park in Blackpool as his case study.

Smarter Design, Construction & Upkeep:

The Smarter Design, Construction & Upkeep strand will focus on car parks as buildings. Niall Monaghan of RPA Architects will discuss designing the Union Square Car Park in Swindon.

Sean Brereton of retail branding consultancy The Velvet Principle will talk about creating shopper friendly car parks, citing Trinity Leeds as an example.

The importance of planned care and maintenance in ensuring car parks remain safe and user-friendly structures will be discussed by Dr Chris Atkins of consultant Mott MacDonald.

John Taylor, managing director of refurbishment specialist USL StructureCare, will look at the many things that can go wrong with a car park, including poor drainage, bad lighting and badly placed columns.
