Bundesverband Parken e.V. – Patron of the PARKEN

The German Parking Association (Bundesverband Parken e.V.) represents the parking industry in Germany. As the patron and partner of PARKEN, it designs and organizes the “Fachtagung” conference and the supporting program as further highlights of the trade fair.

For more than 50 years the German Parking Association has represented the interests of its members in the mobility sector, based on professional exchange and networking. The Association has 209 private and municipal member companies that manage around 1.42 million parking spaces in over 6,000 properties throughout Germany. Almost 160 companies belong to the circle of extraordinary members. The German Parking Association thus represents the diversity of the parking industry in Germany.

In 1997, the German Parking Association developed the concept of the PARKEN fair as a triad of trade exhibition, conference and supporting program. The regular organization of specialist conferences is a core element of the association's work.

Partnering with Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, an organizer of international technical communication platforms, the German Parking Association (Bundesverband Parken e. V.) has made PARKEN a successful meeting place: every two years the parking sector meets, exchanges ideas and experts transfer their know-how and provide valuable input for the everyday life of the professionals working in the industry.
