Nov 7, 2018

PARKEN, Germany's only exhibition held in tandem with a conference on the planning, construction and operation of stationary traffic facilities, will be taking place at the RheinMain CongressCenter in Wiesbaden from 5 – 6 June 2019. The well- established platform will be offering an overview of industry-relevant products and services, picking up on current trends and developments and offering tailor-made solutions for the individual requirements of the industry.

Current topics and latest trends at the exhibition

Innovative topics such as Smart Mobility are on everyone's lips and developing at a rapid pace. At the PARKEN 2019, companies such as Evopark and ParkNow will present their solutions in this area live. At the same time, the event will also feature established system manufacturers for car parks, for example. The range of companies that have already decided to take part in PARKEN 2019 is wide.

PARKEN offers exhibitors a platform for valuable exchange across the entire range of topics. Solutions to current problems will be presented and the visions for tomorrow's parking will be discussed.

Frank Horak, Head of Product Management and Marketing at Scheidt & Bachmann, confirms how important this exchange is at a time when the industry is undergoing such change: "For Scheidt & Bachmann, PARKEN has always been an industry highlight for exchanging ideas with customers and service providers. At the upcoming event, we will be bringing the ongoing digitalization of the parking industry to life with app solutions, online discounts and ticketless parking applications," explains Horak.

A total of over 100 exhibiting companies will utilize the PARKEN to maximize their business success and meet top decision-makers in one place. These include a spectrum of participants including operators of parking facilities, specialists and managers from the fields of construction and building management, representatives of public administration, young entrepreneurs from the Smart Mobility sector as well as architectural offices and service providers.

Conference enables practice-oriented further training

The parallel conference of the Bundesverband Parken e.V. (Federal Parking Association) will present tailor-made solutions for stationary traffic and set new impulses for everyday work.
