PARKEN 2019 offers various highlights around stationary traffic

Apr 11, 2019

The PARKEN, Germany's only exhibition and parallel conference covering the entire spectrum of the parking industry, will present numerous highlights in Wiesbaden from 5 to 6 June 2019.

The range of topics covers all aspects of parking

Over 100 exhibitors will present the entire range of products and solutions for stationary traffic at the PARKEN – from classic parking space equipment to cashless payment systems and charging infrastructure for e-vehicles.

In addition to key players from the parking industry, numerous small and medium-sized companies will also be on site, such as evopark GmbH, Feig Electronic GmbH, ICA chip card systems GmbH & Co. KG and Triflex GmbH & Co. KG to present their innovations to a highly competent specialist audience of car park operators, planners, architects, representatives of public administration and service providers. From abroad the following companies, among others, will attend the PARKEN: EasyPark GmbH from Sweden, Quercus Technologies, S.L. from Spain and Giant Leap Technologies AS from Norway.

Newcomer Pavilion: First-time exhibitors present their solutions

At the already fully booked "Newcomer Pavilion", young companies are to present their innovative products and services. Albers-Parken Consulting, German LED Tech GmbH and Parkster GmbH, for example, are making use of this simple and cost-effective way of participating in the exhibition.

Accompanying conference with highly relevant topics

Under the direction of the Bundesverband Parken e.V., the accompanying conference serves as an ideal parallel event to the exhibition. "This year's program provides exclusive insights into the areas of digitization, electromobility, data security and intelligent traffic systems in the parking industry," states Elisabeth Herles, Managing Director of the Bundesverband Parken e.V. (Federal Parking Association).

Electric mobility in particular presents the parking industry with new challenges and opportunities. "The mobility market will change more strongly in the next five to ten years than in the last thirty. My presentation will clarify which scenarios of future mobility are possible and which changes have to be taken into account, especially in the parking environment," explains Enno Däneke, Managing Partner, FutureManagementGroup AG.

Supporting program: Networking in top locations 

Participants at the PARKEN 2019 can also network with customers or industry colleagues outside the exhibition. The bistro at the "Lambertus" (Kurhaus) on the eve of PARKEN provides the perfect setting for this. On the first day of the event, the Bundesverband Parken e.V. invites attendees to an "evening in the vineyards" at the "Laubenheimer Höhe" estate. Discussions can then be deepened in a relaxed atmosphere with a buffet and a wine tasting event.

Planning and tickets

For optimal preparation, the PARKENExpo event app will be available to participants for the first time this year. At entry tickets can be purchased and further information about the PARKEN event can be found.
