IPMI Parking & Mobility Conference & Expo
June 11-14, 2023


Official #IPMI 2023 Charity Partners

IPMI is delighted to have HONK and Duncan Solutions as our 2023 Conference & Expo Charity Partners. 

IPMI and HONK would like to take this opportunity to inform you of our ongoing partnership in sustainability efforts regarding outreach to the local Fort Worth community. When exhibitors participate in our event, thousands of products are packaged and shipped. At the end of the event, some exhibitors choose to leave their items on the show floor due to excessive return shipping costs. In previous years, our staff simply gathered IPMI materials donated them to a local charity in conjunction with our local Convention & Visitors Bureau. Our goal is to increase our outreach and the amount of donations to the community. 

To achieve this goal, we would love to have your participation. We encourage you to leave show items that you do not plan to ship back on the event floor so we can donate them to a local charity on your behalf. In doing so, you can reduce shipping costs as well as carbon emissions from transportation.  All donated items will be distributed to the Wellman Project

Waste output generated by businesses, and lack of resources in our schools. The Wellman Project uses one idea to tackle these two seemingly unrelated problems in the local Fort Worth community. The solution is simple, but often overlooked: reuse. We serve as a free resource for teachers, distributing surplus materials from local companies for creative reuse in the classroom and beyond, along with making creativity accessible to the whole community through a creative reuse storefront and workshops. Teachers shop for free in our Educator Warehouse, and everyone can shop in our new Curiosity Shop for great deals on art supplies, craft materials, vintage treasures, and unique gifts made by local reuse artists - with 100% of proceeds going to help us fill a classroom, not a landfill!

Save money, save the environment, and help the community. 

 Preferred donation items are: 
•    Show bags, pens, and notepads
•    Promotional and giveaway items 
•    Furniture and household items 
•    Bottled Water 

If you would like to donate materials, please bring your donation to the registration desk at the conclusion of the event. IPMI will coordinate the pickup of these items to local charities.  

Duncan Solutions and Boys & Girls Clubs: Supporting Social Mobility

Duncan Solutions is committed to promoting mobility on our roads and in our communities. At the 2023 IPMI Conference & Expo, we will host many young people and staff from Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County. They will join us in our booth and take tours to meet and learn from experts in the exhibit hall. We also will contribute $25,000 to their Club organization.

At the 2022 IPMI Conference & Expo, Duncan hosted participants from Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana. We donated more than $29,000 – including $3,000 from partners – so the Clubs could buy and distribute additional school supplies to their members. Angel Nelson, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana, said, “This generous gift will support our core Academic Club programing, ensuring success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future.”

You can join the cause by making your own contribution, and by visiting booth 1415 to share your career advice and industry expertise with teen visitors from the local Boys & Girls Club. (For each business card we collect, we also will contribute an additional $5.) Thank you for joining us in helping local youth realize their full potential.
