The China Urban Parking Industry Association (CUPIA), an alliance of industry representatives from 17 provinces across China, will take part in Parking China 2019 as a co-organiser for the first time. 

CUPIA reports that it will share buyer resources and recruit exhibiting brands under its extensive network. More seminar sessions will also be organised by CUPIA to offer fairgoers a refreshing visiting experience.

This inaugural collaboration is brought about following successful cooperation between Messe Frankfurt and the Shanghai Parking Service Trade Association (SPSTA) at Parking China 2018. During this fair, the two cooperated on a seminar platform inviting industry elites to address various topics within the sector.

The highlighted session “IoT – Enlighten Smart Parking in the New Age” was just one feature of this well-received forum and enjoyed particular acclaim among the audience. It was this satisfying result which encouraged a closer partnership to promote further market intelligence exchange in 2019.

Mr Jiandong Zhu, secretary general of SPSTA, commented on the benefits unleashed through the collaboration. He said: “Messe Frankfurt has a reputable range of trade fair portfolios, while local industry associations enjoy strong connections with domestic exhibitors and visitors. In 2018 this collective effort helped to gather experts and attendees from not only academia, but also business fields and the public sector. On the basis of this smooth partnership, CUPIA will join alongside Messe Frankfurt to take the fair’s influence to the next level – from within Shanghai, to 17 provinces nationwide.”

CUPIA was formed by an alliance of regional parking associations, including SPSTA, in August 2018. Committed to inspiring solutions to serve the growing needs for strategic plans to tackle urban parking problems, it is expected this new co-organiser will spark fresh insights and innovations to Parking China.

Parking China 2019 will receive full support from CUPIA in terms of not only organising buyer delegations, but also curating a strengthened conference programme. Exhibitors can leverage the opportunity to capture first-hand updates from policy changes to market trends.

Chairperson of CUPIA, Mr Yifeng Xiao, also praised the collaboration suggesting “provoking thought”, “knowledge sharing” and “mutual benefiting” as the driving forces of the partnership. He added: “I look forward to the show further evolving into an all-round platform for showcasing the latest technical achievements, market solutions as well as research findings.”

Parking China 2019 will be held in Hall W2 of the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre (SNIEC) to offer the most forward-looking solutions within the complete intelligent parking industry supply chain. Further details on the conference will be announced at a later stage.

Situated alongside leading industry brands from the concurrent fairs Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology and Shanghai Smart Home Technology, the show will pose vast advantages for thousands of professional buyers who are interested in the latest IoT and intelligent building technologies.
