      Bluegrass Room
      Shifts in net-migration, population growth and accelerated urbanization remain driving factors behind congestion, constricted mobility and sub-optimal access into, around and away from many downtowns, universities, town centers and suburban communities alike. Innovative parking and transportation solutions are an imperative to promote sustainable resource allocation and to support economic development, community vitality and higher education goals. In this session we’ll discuss smart parking, mobility on demand, Mobility as a Service and the concept of intermobility. Mobility describes the ease with which commuters, visitors, shoppers, students and patients move from point A to point B. Congestion and delay impact mobility and impede to access destinations. Intermobility describes the growing trend of offering multiple modal choices in a coordinated and seamless fashion so that commuters can select the travel mode for a given day that best meets their needs. Finally, we’ll illustrate these concepts in practice.

      The Best Customer Journey When Parking!
      Triple Crown Room
      “The customer journey is the complete sum of experiences that customers go through when interacting with your company and brand. Instead of looking at just a part of a transaction or experience, the customer journey documents the full experience of being a customer”, Audra Sorman says. Whether business or pleasure, it is essential to start and finish the trip on the right foot. The Customer Experience starts when the customer enters the car park and ends when he leaves. Thus, the Parking Customer Journey is an important part of the overall experience and we have to take care of drivers’ satisfaction. We will focus on the Parking Customer Journey of a driver inside the parking facilities from the moment he enters and until he goes out. We will map out the customer journey process to discover how to increase the customer satisfaction and benefits to the operator. Parking is no longer a side aspect of the overall experience. Guiding customers efficiently to free parking spots and allowing them to easily locate their vehicle. Integrating smart technology to parking for boost his revenues and maximize efficiency and profitability. A complete control of the car park is especially relevant in order to optimize the parking management, increase profits, decrease costs and optimize price and parking policy. Join us for an interactive conversation on the importance of the Customer Journey, know how to improve it and all the benefits that can bring to your parking facilities and your pocket!

      Does a Parking Problem Exist? A Case Study of Austin Peay State University
      A university may be referred to as a group of people gathered around a common parking problem. Campus community members perceived that there is a lack of parking on campus. Often, the reality is that there is no parking where they want it, but there is adequate and abundant capacity elsewhere on campus. As a result campus community members jump to the conclusion that a parking structure will solve their parking issues. Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN faced this common problem. Participants will leave with an understanding of supply and demand management techniques that may be considered before constructing additional parking.
      1:30 PM  -  2:30 PM
      Implementing Parksmart Best Practices & WKU Parking Structure 3 Parksmart Case Study
      Triple Crown Room
      The Parksmart program encourages sustainable practices in parking garage design, management and programs. Garages that are certified as Parksmart meet criteria for sustainable practices in reducing energy consumption, designing for durability, minimizing waste, encouraging the use of alternate fuel vehicles, educating patrons on “green parking” and sustainability, and promoting alternative transportation programs such as carpooling and car sharing. Even without seeking Parksmart certification, garage owners and managers can implement sustainability best practices to promote “green” parking and benefit their business operations. An overview of Parksmart’s goals, the certification process, and the benefit of making your garage “green” will be reviewed. A case study will be presented on the Bronze-level Parksmart certification of Western Kentucky University Parking Structure 3. The case study will provide valuable insight on certifying a new and existing parking garage. This presentation is suited for owners, facility directors and staff, and operators of parking garage facilities in institutional and commercial industries that are interested in achieving “green” parking in their facilities.

      Why Smart Cities are More Tempting than Donuts...The future of Smart Transit and Parking to Build Sm
      Bluegrass Room
      Smart communities are currently a hot topic and are impacting cities (and towns) across the world. IoT (internet of things) sensors and technology are connecting components that gather millions upon millions of data points to improve the lives of residents and visitors alike. Smart transit and parking efficiently provides solutions to questions such as congestion, what re-routing is possible, and where vehicle storage capacity exists. This session will explore the limits of what smart transit and parking can accomplish and will pose the question: are we headed to a complete integration between our personal data devices and an IoT infrastructure and is this path inevitable in a world with an ever increasing population and limited resources? We will explore smart transit, smart parking, and how it all ties together into the creation of a smart community.

      Ethical Leadership: Doing What's Right, Not What's Easy
      Grand Kentucky Ballroom
      The importance of ethical leadership in supervision and management and the problems that can arise when we fail to lead (vs. supervise/manage). When leadership is done right, the leader is a role model - someone who communicates the importance of ethical standards and holds their team accountable to those standards. Done poorly, leadership can negatively affect the productivity and well-being of individual team members and be detrimental to the reputation and success of the entire organization. Anyone can be promoted into a supervision or management role, but have you developed the skill set necessary to be an ethical leader? This session will define the concepts and characteristics behind ethical leadership, why it matters, and offer practical ideas to help ensure your success.
