Absolutely and you’ll find that it’s quite the buzz during the event with attendees engaging and connecting virtually even on the go. You’ll also find that it’s packed full of information and this year, in an effort to be more sustainable, IPMI will not be producing a phyical Program Guide and the content will be posted in the mobile app.  It’s also a useful tool to start planning your session participation and getting to know other attendees long before your feet hit the ground in New Orleans.

You can find the mobile app in the Google Playstore or Apple App Store by searching for IPMI2024 beginning in late May.


First of all, welcome and we’re glad you’ve decided to join us; you won’t regret it!  You will receive an email invitation to attend a Frist Timers Networking Session.  Be on the lookout as the event gets closer! 

Be sure to download the conference mobile app from the Google Playstore (in late May) or Apple App Store.


The Call for Presentations opens July 25 and closed on September 11, 2023.  For more information, including the submission process for future events, contact Kathleen Federici, federici@parking-mobility.org, with any questions.

 


All programming will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Locations for events not being held at the Center will be noted in the Events Section of the website or noted in the Schedule-at-a- Glance.

Hotel, Property, and Travel

The hotel cut-off is May 10, 2024, however, please be aware, this only means that the IPMI contracted block of rooms is available to book up until that date, based on availability  Many of our properties sell out well in advance of the cut-off date.  Book early!


If you have missed the deadline, please email us at conference@parking-mobility.org. We will do our best to reach out to the hotel on your behalf but cannot guarantee that the hotel has a room for you.


You can certainly book at any hotel property you desire and we understand that some of you may have your own organizations rules of travel, requiring you to stay at a specific hotel chain,  however, there are multiple benefits to both you, the attendee and to IPMI, the organization for this sort of partnership. 
 

  1.  Rates and concessions have been specifically negotiated for IPMI attendees to help reduce costs in a number of ways including, complimentary Wi-Fi in some properties, complimentary breakfasts and/or evening refreshments or happy hours at other properties.
  2. IPMI and/or our partners/sponsors occasionally arrange for special messaging or room deliveries to IPMI attendees.  If you have not booked inside the block, you are liable to miss out on important messages/offers or even surprise room drops. 
  3. When IPMI has contracted a block of rooms and those blocks aren’t met, the association faces the potential of attrition which often includes financial impact to the association.  Each year when contracting with our properties, IPMI uses a matrix and historical data to contract for the total sleeping rooms for the event.  When you book outside the block, that data is not captured inside IPMI’s data and is not attributed towards IPMI’s contracted block and could adversely affect the association.   


All education and exhibits are self-contained in the Greater Columbus Convention Center. IPMI shuttles will be provided to all off property special events including the CAPP Classic Golf Tournament and the Opening Welcome Event. Shuttle service will NOT be provided from the hotels to the Convention Center.  


None of our properties will contact you initially to book your hotel.  These are pop-up entities that prey on convention traffic to run scams or meet quotas.  Often times they will book your room but later you will find out that you don’t have a room onsite or you pay additional fees.  These “room pirates” are extremely unscrupulous and are often long gone by the time the event rolls around.  We strongly encourage you to book inside IPMI’s block to protect yourself and reap the benefits of IPMI’s negotiated concessions and messaging service during the event.
