Stuttgart, June 1, 2016  This year's APCOA PARKING Mobility Summit is taking place on June 28 in Berlin's Hotel Adlon. The international event examines parking management trends and has become a firmly established fixture in the industry's calendar, attracting ever larger numbers of participants each year. Under the heading “Disrupt or be Disrupted” national and international experts are set to discuss the challenges surrounding the future of mobility. “The summit serves as a platform for a much-needed dialogue among the industry's major participants,” said Philippe Op de Beeck, CEO of the APCOA PARKING Group. “This is the only viable approach if we are to agree on common solutions to the broad range of economic and ecological challenges of urban mobility.”

Self-driving cars will appear on our streets sooner or later and parking facility managers are not alone in having to face up to the challenges of digitalisation. At this year's APCOA PARKING Mobility Summit the futurologist Alexander Mankowsky, a member of the development team behind Daimler's self-driving F015 prototype, will be providing insights into the future of mobility. Steve Banfield from Inrix will explain how car park occupancy forecasts can accelerate the search for parking spaces. An additional case study report, delivered by Thorsten Huck, Pricing Manager at Shell, is entitled “Responsive Pricing at Filling Stations”. Dr. Rolf Nicodemus, Head of Connected Parking at Robert Bosch GmbH, will also be speaking on a number of topics, including the state-of-the-art sensor technologies deployed in parking facilities.

Who will be the winners and losers from innovative mobility concepts? This, along with a range of other questions, will be up for discussion as the 3rd APCOA PARKING Mobility Summit provides though-provoking ideas and analysis. “The function of the city as the fulcrum around which our working and home lives revolve is constantly gaining in importance,” said Philippe Op de Beeck. “When it comes to the future of urban mobility, networked parking is going to play a decisive role.”
