While we are disappointed we won’t see everyone in person this year at NPA’s annual conference, we are excited to connect with you virtually at PMX Live

Between the challenges posed by COVID and the continuing evolution of mobility, it is more important than ever that our industry gather together and share ideas, champion innovation and inspire each other to new heights.

We invite you to join us for a PMX Live panel on "Automated Parking from an Asset Owners Point of View," featuring Watry Design's John Purinton, Michael Dennison of ParkWorks and Paul Menzies of Laconia Development. Learn about the the latest design trends, challenges and opportunities of automated parking and get an inside look at The Spire, an exciting development under construction in Seattle that features a fully automated parking system. 

We look forward to discussing these challenges with you in this new online format. Our parking experts are happy to talk with you about your parking needs, either at the show, or anytime from our home offices.
