A significant part of the annual conference meetings is the accompanying trade show. It is here that innovation in the parking industry is showcased. Members who may be shopping for new control equipment, IT solutions, or other new ideas can view state-of-the-art products at work, speak to vendors, and place orders. Round Table discussions provide an opportunity for the different sectors of the industry to meet for informal "shop talk" sessions and have become a tradition at the annual conference. It is here that members speak freely and share problems, insights, and solutions that are specific to their sector.
