How to be Published in PT’s Industry News

Industry News is our most read section. It’s to the credit of Parknews editor Astrid Ambroziak. She collects news daily about our industry and posts it at Parknews.biz. This comes from numerous sources like Google, the PR wire, and from news releases sent to us by organizations about their parking activity. These include manufacturers, cities, universities, airports, consultants, and individuals in the industry. Then, once a month, we take the “Cliff Notes” version of that news and those PR releases and print them in Parking Today as Industry News. To make it easy for you, we print the people and company names in each one in bold.

If you want to be in Industry News, it’s easy. Simply send your news release in Word or PDF format to astrid@parkingtoday.com . Within 24 hours of receipt, she will post it in total on Parknews.biz. Then a few days before our print deadline, she sends the links from each parknews.biz story to our copy editor Melissa, who creates the “Cliff Notes” version and posts it in PT under Industry News. And all that is FREE.

We created Parknews.biz because print magazines are notorious in their inability to get news in real time. They have deadlines that are up to four weeks before the issue date. Think of it like a baseball game that goes into extra innings. When you pick up the paper the next morning it doesn’t have the winner. The paper’s deadline was before the game ended. So Parknews.biz gets you the final score, and Parking Today gets you the summary. You can always go back to Parknews and use its search engine to find the complete article.

To summarize. To be published in PT’s Industry News, send your news release in Word or PDF format to Astrid and it will happen automatically. The email to remember is astrid@parkingtoday.com.
