18th EPA Congress and Exhibition 2017


Program of the 18th EPA Congress 2017

Martens_Peter.JPG The 18th European Parking Congress & Exhibition is an excellent platform to share knowledge about contribution of the parking industry to accessible urban areas with high quality in public domain. In the City lounge of Rotterdam we will have plenty of opportunities to discuss about these interesting themes (not just sit down and listen), either at the Congress & Exhibition, either more informal at the evening events. Key target of the organization team is to provide the participants not just “an interesting congress”, but to inspire everyone to develop their part of the future in their own local environment, taking benefit of best practices in our EPA-network.

Peter Martens,
Vice president of Vexpan & organizing committee
