What a crazy time to be in Miami! Winter Music Conference is in full swing, with parties taking place across South Beach, Brickell and Downtown. Miami Music Week, now in it’s third year, kicked off on Tuesday but it’s tonight’s event that stands out against the rest. Remembrance, taking place at the Ice Palace in North Miami, aims to raise money for cancer research and to commemorate the life of Bingo Players’ Paul Baümer, who lost his battle with cancer in December 2013. Baümer’s former partner, Maarten Hoogstraten, will be performing, along with Dada Life, Tommy Trash, Henry Fong, MAKJ, just to mention a few.

Then of course there’s the party to end all parties – Ultra Music Festival. Starting tomorrow at 4pm and going through Sunday at 11pm, this year’s festival promises not to disappoint, with performances by David Guetta, Afrojack, Avicii, and many more. Parking won’t be easy to come by, but ParkJockey has you covered! You can purchase a guaranteed spot for one to three days by visiting here.

International Happiness Day (sponsored by ParkJockey)

If you didn’t know, today is the United Nations’ International Day of Happiness! Yeah, that’s right! The purpose of today it is that you remember your family and friends, and general well-being that actually make you happy…

We could’ve gone down the route of sharing, cute kitten pictures or a glorious beach and cocktail. ParkJockey wants to do it a slightly different way…

Imagine driving into town for a bite to eat, a game to cheer on your team or a concert to nod your head to. That exact moment, when you feel you are seconds away from pure happiness… One word: Parking!


You are going to be looking sad and frustrated if you are left circling around, the kids may be getting restless, too!

What would make you happy? Imagine pre-booking your parking, or if you are in a rush, booking on-the-go via an app, and driving straight to a guaranteed parking spot, no frills. The smile on your face will be going ear to ear, all thanks to ParkJockey.

If you book your parking with ParkJockey and your International Unhappy Day, will turn all the happier, just like the twins below!

Mayor Boris Johnson Welcomes ParkJockey to London!

Boris Johnson ParkJockey

Today was an extremely exciting day! Not only was the sun out in London but at a high-profile event held in the heart of the London TechHub, Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled his until now secretly-kept plans for the first ever London Technology Week. The Mayor was optimistic and confident that it will contend on a similar global scale to London Fashion Week, which was, of course, “music to the ears” of the London’s Tech City.

Our London Heads of Operations, Kamal Rajput and Stefan Friederichs, along with our Managing Partner attended the event. A host of leading figures in tech, such as Michael Acton Smith of MindCandy, Facebook VP-EMEA Nicola Mendelsohn and Oscar-winning CEO of Framestore, Sir William Sargent, were present.

The announcement has already stirred up interest in the press and reflects the Mayor’s ambition to make London the “tech capital of the world.”

As importantly, Mr. Johnson welcomed three new firms to the capital, one of which is (drumroll)  –  PARKJOCKEY !!!

In an instant, we were tweeted about and also made it into the London Evening Standard, along with several blogs and London24. Channel 9 of Australia also interviewed our Heads of Operations for a quick ParkJockey demo. They seemed pretty impressed!
