How to Convince Your Boss to Send You to Connect 2018


November is just a few months away, which means it’s that time of year: time to start building your case for Connect 2018!Our annual conference is taking us to Orlando this year, and it’s already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. We’ve been working hard the last few months preparing (and are continuing to do so!) in order to build the training schedule, line up great speakers, and plan some fun activities.

In the meantime, registration is now live. It’s never too early to start making your plans and secure your spot at our must-attend parking event of the year…

For those of you who need to get the green light from your boss before registering, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a few compelling talking points to persuade even the stingiest of supervisors that Connect is worth the investment:

“This is a great opportunity for us to learn about where the industry is headed while getting actual hands-on experience with the latest technology.”

Colleges are seeing record enrollments, urban populations are at all-time highs, and society is rapidly setting new precedents within the self-driving car industry. In order to adapt to changing demands, we’re constantly improving our solutions, collaborating with partners, and gathering feedback from our customers. At Connect 2018, you’ll have the opportunity to see live demonstrations and gain access to firsthand information. Our team of experts will be on hand and can help you generate ideas on using the latest technology for your individual operations.

“With hundreds of fellow parking professionals in attendance, the networking opportunities alone are worth the investment.”

We’re predicting record attendance at this year’s conference, which means you’ll be interacting with a wide variety of people with diverse backgrounds. Each represents an organization—large or small— that is using the same tools to tackle its own challenges. Connect offers structured discussions (like panels and roundtables) plus plenty of informal opportunities during the week for you to connect with other T2 customers. There’s no better crowd to talk about parking technology with! From each of our training sessions to the highly-anticipated Customer Appreciation Party, there’s always an opportunity to build your network, put faces with names, and get ideas for your own organization.

“Where else can we get specifically catered insight directly from industry professionals?”

After another year of close collaboration with our team and our partners, we’re excited to share our knowledge with you. Connect will feature over 100 training sessions you can choose from to build your own custom schedule—so you’ll have access to tailor-made concepts for your distinct needs. With hands-on, interactive training sessions, you’ll return to your office with new insights and skills to help you excel at your job. Plus, Connect gives our T2 team a chance to hear your ideas and feedback. Your direct insight allows us to improve and evolve so that we can stay innovative and informed.

“I’ll gain valuable professional development skills, and it’ll be so much fun!”

Connect is a unique opportunity to spend a few days focusing on professional development, training, and learning specific to the parking industry. All in all, Connect is an incredible experience that’ll give “business trip” a whole new meaning. So get ready to meet hundreds of fascinating people from across the nation, escape to warm and sunny Florida, and discover new things about our unique field of technology. We’re so excited for you to join us!
