PARKEN 2019: New venue in Wiesbaden

Jun 7, 2018

The PARKEN, Germany's only trade exhibition with a parallel conference on the topics of planning, construction and operating of parking areas, will be returning to the RheinMain CongressCenter (RMCC) in Wiesbaden from 5 - 6 June 2019.

Event location links tradition with benefits

The newly opened RMCC combines modern architecture with innovative functionality, thereby creating an attractive setting for the PARKEN as a presentation arena for the parking industry. Located in the center of Wiesbaden, the venue offers a familiar atmosphere with a great potential for networking.

"We look forward to being back in Wiesbaden with the PARKEN in 2019 and with our symposium and general assembly – in new halls but with the same high quality," confirms Dr. Karl-Ludwig Ballreich, Chairman of the Bundesverband Parken e.V.

Established meeting place for decision-makers from the user industries

Exhibitors will meet a highly competent audience including operators of parking facilities, specialists and executives from the areas of construction and building management, representatives from public administration, young entrepreneurs in the field of smart mobility as well as architects' offices and service providers. The figures of this event are also reflected in this high-quality level: in 2017, 94 percent of the exhibitors rated the quality of the visitors, 70 percent of whom are involved in procurement decisions in their company, as good to very good.

"The PARKEN has all the latest news of the industry – it's a must-attend event and an industry highlight for everyone involved with parking," continues Karl-Ludwig Ballreich.

Highly relevant forum for exchange of information and discussion

The parallel conference of the Bundesverband Parken e.V., which is witnessing a steadily growing number of participants, will be presenting tailor-made solutions for stationary traffic and providing new impulses for everyday working life.

"The organization of the symposium and general assembly together with the exhibition PARKEN will guarantee that the key decision-makers of the industry are on-site. This will offer the members of the association an excellent overview of the news in all areas related to stationary traffic," says Gerhard Trost-Heutmekers, Managing Director of the Bundesverband Parken e.V.

The PARKEN event is organized by the Mesago
Messe Frankfurt GmbH. The patron of the event is the Bundesverband Parken e.V.
