Smart Parking, Smart Cities: World's Leading Parking Experts to Share Insights With Latin American Architects, Urban Planners, Developers, Government Officials, and Business Leaders

Latin Parking Conference & Expo to Convene Dec. 9-12, in San Juan, Puerto Rico

FREDERICKSBURG, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 29, 2012) - An increasing number of government leaders, architects, urban planners, transportation officials, and economic decision-makers are realizing how important parking is to livable, walkable cities.

In fact, a revolution is driving the parking industry, thanks to new approaches in the design, management, and operations of public and private parking. The goal: increase revenue and create profits that can be re-invested in programs that improve urban mobility, reduce congestion, and enhance sustainability.

The International Parking Institute (IPI) will host the 2nd Annual Latin Parking Conference and Expo in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Dec. 9-12. Presented in English with Spanish translation, the conference focus is "Re-think Parking: New Ideas, New Technology." Leading parking and transportation experts will provide practical solutions and real-world examples of how parking can better integrate with existing modes of transportation. 

"Recent innovations in parking technology offer vast potential to solve parking challenges worldwide," says Shawn Conrad, CAE, executive director of IPI. "This international conference is designed to provide education, inspiration, and resources so that cities can seize the myriad opportunities to improve efficiency, boost revenue, reduce traffic, and create more prosperous, sustainable cities."

The Conference and Expo will take place at the Ritz-Carlton, San Juan. Rooms are available at a discounted rate of $179 for conference attendees who reserve by Nov. 9. For more information and to register, visit
