2019 International Parking & Mobility Institute Conference and Expo

Anaheim, California

Image of 2019 International Parking & Mobility Institute Conference and Expo We look forward to welcoming you to Southern California for this year's IPMI Conference & Expo!

There's a lot to experience this June at the International Parking & Mobility Institute Conference & Expo!  

Michael Pendergrass, Associate Principal with Watry Design, will moderate the panel "Parking the Friendly Skies: How Airports Are Humanizing the Passenger Experience." 

Many airports are seizing the opportunity to offer passengers a high-quality experience that starts before they even exit their cars. From functional design to cutting edge technology to public art, airports are creating parking that is an extension of the passenger experience. 

Join Michael, Michelle Wendler, Principal with Watry Design; Bob Bolton, Director of Airport Design & Construction for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority; and Bob Lockhart, Deputy Director of Operations at Mineta San Jose International Airport, to explore multiple case studies that demonstrate how airports have successfully integrated customer-first airport parking.

Want to know how parking can create a lasting impression? Matt Davis, Associate Principal with Watry Design, will moderate a panel featuring Taylor Kim, Project Manager with Watry Design; and Josh Kavanagh, Director of Transportation at University of California, San Diego on "Maximizing Impressions: Putting Parking’s Best Foot Forward." 

They'll examine case studies that demonstrate how transit agencies, airports, college campuses, mixed-use developments, and downtowns have used architecture, public art, pedestrian connections, and technology to transform the parking experience and enhance the user journey.

During the conference, don't forget to stop by booth 648 in the Expo Hall to enjoy a day at the beach! If you want to get the most out of your stay in Southern California, we've got you covered, with beach games and prizes that will set you up for fun in the sun.
