Parking is a vital resource that impacts our lives in numerous ways, said Herb Anderson, chairman of the National Parking Association, and chairman, president and CEO of Impark. The Parking Show of Shows provides parking and transportation professionals the resources they need to meet their parking needs, and offers a look at the latest trends and parking issues.

This years keynote speaker will be Steve Rizzo, an internationally-acclaimed motivational speaker who will offer methods for improving organizational opportunities and provide insights into the skills organizations and individuals need to get to a better place at work and in life. A former headlining comedian, Rizzo is affectionately known as the Attitude Adjuster, and he takes motivation and confidence building to a whole new level with his unique brand of humor-vational programs. Rizzo will speak on Tuesday, Oct. 12, at 8:30 a.m.

The Parking Show of Shows will also feature more than two dozen presentations focusing on vital parking issues that impact municipalities, institutions and businesses, including:

    * The state of the parking industry
    * Parking taxes: how they impact municipal parking plans and local business development
    * Green parking: how the parking industry is leading the green movement, and how parking will be even more sustainable in the future
    * Leveraging technology to provide stellar customer service
    * Extracting the economic value of your parking assets

In addition to educational sessions and freewheeling roundtable discussions, the convention and exposition will provide numerous opportunities to network with other experienced parking professionals, and to meet with more than 100 leading parking industry vendors and service providers exhibiting at the show. There will also be a variety of social events, including a golf outing to support the Parking Industry Institute (PII) Scholarship Fund.

Because many municipal, state, and private organizations are still operating with reduced budgets, the NPA has reduced the price to attend the 2010 Parking Show of Shows to $75 on Wednesday, Oct. 13, and $50 for Thursday, Oct. 14. Those rates include entrance to the exhibit hall, breakfast/brunch and business sessions.

By reducing the cost to attend the NPA conference, we hope to make it more accessible for professionals from both the public and private sectors, said Anderson.
