About PACE

The Parking Australia Convention and Exhibition (PACE) is the only Australian event that focuses solely on the parking industry. It connects exhibitors and sponsors with decision makers from both the public and private sectors. The exhibition is an opportunity to showcase parking solutions to traffic and parking professionals from across the county.

PACE 2021 will provide a variety of networking opportunities for the delegates attending and offers an opportunity to connect with other industry peers. Attending PACE is an investment in bringing fresh ideas back to your business.

The theme for 2021 is “Parking Unlocked – The New Normal” and reflects the challenges the industry faces as Australia and the world move to a post COVID-19 normal. As restrictions continue to ease, it is time to consider how we can unlock the potential and opportunities that will present themselves in the coming months and years.

PACE is owned and operated by the leading parking authority – Parking Australia.
