Global Parking Association Leaders Summit (GPALs)

The Global Parking Association Leaders Summit (GPALs) is an annual gathering of parking association leaders from around the world. Established by the International Parking Institute in 2012, the GPALs Summit is a unique opportunity for those leaders to gather, share information, and learn from each other in a friendly forum that encourages discussion and dialogue on a wide range from topics.

While parking is different in each country, there are many common elements. The most notable of these is a need to educate government officials, developers, urban planners, the business community, and other stakeholders about why parking is important and why the expertise of parking professionals should be considered early in the planning stages of any project.
