Parkex Back at the NEC
Parkex returned to the NEC for the first live face to face show in 3 years. The pandemic has left its mark with rapid changes to the parking fraternity, and so this exhibition was a good time to explore the changes and see new innovation being brought to market.
Running from the 14th to the 16th June the NEC provided the ideal location for visitors to travel from all parts of the country. This year Parkex partnered with Traffex whose focus remains on highways and provides a different dimension to the exhibition.
Over the 3 days the hub theatres covered many topics from guest speakers and experts within the parking fraternity on Suicide Prevention, Fire Risk in Multi-Storey Car Parks, EV Charging and Parking.
“It’s great to see the return of Parkex and an indication that we are returning to a degree of normality after the pandemic. It is obvious to see the influence government policy is having in the parking arena with new exhibitors focused around the world of electric car charging and EV hubs…
I am delighted that Makers have been able to return and catch up with old friends on a face-to-face basis and listen to the new direction parking is taking”
Simon Lamb, Managing Director
With over 100 exhibitors, Parkex is the biggest parking show in the UK bringing together all aspects of the parking industry. The British parking association is always on hand to help and assist with parking enquiries and this year is promoting “Women in Parking”. In particular tackling violence against women and girls which took centre stage with a with a hosting panel holding open debate on the subject.
We congratulate the exhibitors for their support to Parkex and for the effort and ingenuity of the exhibition stands, and look forward to meeting up at the next one.
