Ahh, trade shows. We love ’em here at Ballparc. The booth, the workshops, the happy hours, and most of all, the people. Parking is a people business, after all. We always enjoy the chance to see familiar faces, meet new ones, and exchange ideas for how we can all work together to move the industry forward. If the location is somewhere fun, all the better.
One of our favorite shows is the NPA Convention & Expo. The fine folks at the National Parking Association work hard to put on a great show, and year after year, they never disappoint. Our team has been looking forward to the 2018 NPA Convention in October all year long. We’ve got a bunch of awesome new things to share, including new features for our Event and Enforcement apps, and a whole new lineup of equipment options. (The fact that it’s in Vegas this year doesn’t hurt either).
As if all these reasons weren’t enough to get our team pumped, now we’ve got another one. We’re proud to say that our founder and CEO, Taylor Chapman, will be honored with NPA’s 40 Under 40 Award at this year’s show. These awards recognize young professionals whose contributions are making a positive impact on the parking industry. This is certainly a fitting description of Taylor.
Still in his twenties, Taylor has combined an intuitive understanding of the parking industry with his background in programming and business to build an innovative parking technology company from the ground up. By launching Ballparc in 2012, Taylor made data-driven parking management accessible to parking operations and event venues of all sizes. Since then, has continued to help parking professionals raise the bar in their operations by expanding Ballparc’s offerings from a single app to a full suite of cloud-based solutions.
Never content with the status quo, Taylor brings a forward-thinking approach to product development. Ballparc products are constantly evolving with new features and integrations to create a parking ecosystem that provides convenience and value for consumers and operators alike.
Taylor and the rest of the 2018 40 Under 40 class will be recognized at the NPA 2018 Convention and Expo on October 23, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. Visit NPA’s website to learn more about the convention and see a full list of this year’s 40 Under 40 recipients.
Congrats to Taylor and the rest of this year’s 40 Under 40 Class!
