At this year's NPA Convention and Expo in New Orleans, September 18-21, we look forward to joining fellow thought leaders on their mission to elevate parking and mobility. In addition to celebrating our successes and reflecting on how far the industry has come, we are excited to tackle the latest challenges and chart the course for parking's future. 

We invite you to join Taylor Kim to discuss how parking design is tackling the rapidly growing demand for EV charging, explore how PARCS and PGS have affected parking structure cost and design decisions, as well as how we can design parking to support today’s needs while being prepared for shifts in future demand in the session "Reinventing the Parking Structure." 

Watry Design's John Purinton joins Brett Winslow with ABM to discuss how LAX reimagined its passenger parking experience and earned multiple NPA Innovation Awards in the session, "Top-Flight Service: How LAX Reimagined the Passenger Parking Experience."

We look forward to seeing you there!
