Parking professionals from throughout the state of California returned to beautiful Monterey for a Halloween edition of the CPPA Annual Conference & Trade Show. Josh Allison of ThinkCafe opened the conference with a thought-provoking keynote address on the challenges generational divides pose to workplace communication.
In addition to some great information on current trends and outlooks on parking’s future, this year’s educational sessions went above and beyond when it came to engaging the audience and creating effective dialogue. A session on program implementation encouraged interactive roleplay, which elicited laughter as well as thoughtful questions from a willing audience. Madison Huemmer had attendees on their feet empowering one another to become Parking Bosses.
Thank you to everyone who attended sessions with the Watry Design team. It was standing room only for “Stanford University’s Approach to the Inherent Challenges of Parking.” Francisco Navarro, Associate Director with Watry Design and Brian Shaw, Executive Director of Parking & Transportation at Stanford University, engaged in an interactive discussion that covered everything from integrating structured parking to integrating new technology to multi-modal strategies for managing demand.
