Expanding The Synergy of Technology.
The IPI in Tampa
Imagine the future of your industry spread out before you. That's what you can expect to experience by attending Expanding the Synergy of Technology 2007. You’ll be able to see for yourself the new direction of technology by suppliers/competitors. You'll have access to visionaries and leaders describing the possibilities ahead. You’ll be able to share challenges, ideas and solutions with colleagues and peers.
The conference experience also includes diversified educational and technical sessions along with open discussion forums and apples-to-apples comparisons (Power Pitch Hours) on various forms of technology. The exposition compliments the conference experience by bringing to you the latest technology available for you to touch, see and experience – all under one roof, The Tampa Convention Center.
The benefits of technology and its integration in a multi-modal environment is one of the most important influences in the parking, transportation, transit, planning, engineering, and construction industries today.
The Institute’s annual conference is an important part of the IPI’s mission to enable its members through leadership, information and education bringing relevant information to association members. Knowledgeable and articulate individuals will share their expertise and real world experiences with an emphasis in all aspects of “Expanding the Synergy of Technology” for the IPI 2007 Conference and Exposition in Tampa.
Technology continues to revolutionize the industry almost on a daily basis with new software and equipment. This challenge offers more opportunities than ever before, to improve our service abilities and renew our commitment to our customers.
The 2007 Conference includes a general session, concurrent sessions, the popular ShopTalk® discussion groups, “power-pitch” hours, and guided parking operational and facility tours. Over four days in Tampa, you can take advantage of this far-reaching program of technological information–unlike anything else in the world–and put it to use in your own operation.
Our program committee worked diligently to select topics that are genuinely spectacular and promise to offer invaluable information. Couple that with nearly 200 exhibiting companies displaying what is the latest parking technology, products, and services, and you’ll have four days to refocus your commitment not only to the industry but to your own personal growth.
You’ll notice in the program we coded sessions this year based on the audience focus as identified in the speaker proposals. This will better enable you to get maximum benefit. The description for each code is as follows:
Novice — presents introductory, informative material; focus for those individuals new to the industry with little or no prior knowledge of session topic needed.
Intermediate — translates information into concepts and relationships; focus for those individuals with a working knowledge of session topic and the industry.
Veteran — generates problem-solving and inferences from concepts and relationships; focus for those individuals with substantial knowledge of the industry.
