Europe’s largest parking exhibition this year was held at Kensington Olympia. ParkJockey as mentioned in the previous blog was located at Stand F34. The weather was perfect, far to hot to be stuck inside, however the exhibition on the whole was a resounding success.
ParkEx state that they ‘believe in the value of meeting face to face.’ As cliché as this may sound they hit the nail perfectly on the head. We were unsure of the attention we would get but with a expertly decorated stand, to catch the eye of the parking world, and the eye catching popcorn machine the conversations were popping off in each corner.
We had the opportunity to meet an array of influential people in the parking industry and lay the foundations for future relationships in order to fuel our rapid growth in the parking world. People were thoroughly impressed with our solution but now the real work starts… See you again in 2015 bigger and better! Check out our video highlights below…
ParkJockey cordially invites you to experience a night of art this Saturday, June 14 at Cafeina Wynwood Lounge. Guests will enjoy work by Maria “Fena” Gonzalez and those that display their ParkJockey registration on their phone will receive complimentary cocktails.
“Words to Live By” is the artist’s introspective look into her favorite poetry intertwined with her own reflections on life, intentions and embracing it all. These works are presented as a whimsical dreamscape for viewers to lose themselves in.
“Floating images of nature, of visions dreamed and lived, weave in and out, intertwining with linings of text from poems, sayings and conversations with others that inspire and change me.” -Fena Gonzalez
The festivities will take place between 7pm – 9pm. To secure your parking in advance, visit http://www.parkjockey.com/pjartwalk or search “Fena” within your ParkJockey app. All reservations are paid with a credit card, so there’s no need for cash or ATMs. The app and website are free to use and there are no extra fees associated with booking in advance.
As always, please drink responsibly. Our partners, RedCap, can drive you home, or wherever else you would like to go, in your own car for less than the price of a round-trip taxi. Drivers are booked on a first-come, first-served basis so please book your personal driver early.

They are the biggest boy band in the world and they are set to take centre stage over three consecutive nights at a sell-out Wembley Stadium. It’s been quite a journey for the pieced together X-Factor ‘auditionees’ – who were conjoined as they failed in their solo attempts to get to the live show. It was quite a decision from the judges, headed by Simon Cowell who post X-Factor signed them to his record label.
The X-Factor prodigies have risen to the forefront of pop music and set to be worth around $30 million, despite still being very young, with huge potential to grow into a music super power and establish longevity in such a gruelling and competitive business.
One Direction have managed to completely sell out their UK Stadium tour and will be preforming in front over 70,000 people each night at Wembley after previously filling The Stadium of Light, – Sunderland, The Etihad – Manchester and Murrayfield – Edinburgh – not bad!
The thousands of screaming young girls’ dreams will come true when the heart-throbs put on a show they wont forget. So, if you are driving then don’t forget to reserve your parking space with ParkJockey, it’s going to be extremely busy, and crazy for a fact! Use the code 1Dfor 10% discount here.
This Saturday 31st May the stage is all but set! Victory is all that matters between the these two British powerhouses.
Around 80,000 eye-witness spectators will be packed inside a near to capacity Wembley Stadium, sitting on the edge of their seats that loom over the ringside of Carl Froch vs George Groves II: The Battle of Britain. The fight is a rematch to a previous duel between the pair, in which Froch triumphed.
Now Groves wants to put the record straight, and prove his doubters wrong. However, if there was ever a harder opponent to face, then he comes in the name of Carl Froch. The man has only been defeated twice in his entire professional career, and currently holds the WBA and IBF super middleweight titles. This highly anticipated fight, is going to be a spectacle. If I was to call it, I’d say Groves won’t give up till the last bell, so Froch to clinch it unanimously after 12.
If you are planning on driving to Wembley and need parking then book with ParkJockey, we have a special promo-code as well so you can get 10% off instead of being punched by extortionate prices! Find parking here, and use ‘BOXING10’ at the checkout!

A step in a positive direction for ParkJockey, as we added the Apple ‘Passbook’ functionality live on our latest app update.
The Passbook has notably changed the way in which people store their passes, tickets and coupons, in a more organised fashion. When a ParkJockey customer books their parking with an iOS device they will have the option to add it to their ‘Passbook,’ ensuring they stay organised and never waste time and money particularly on ink to print, not mention fiddling around trying to find their email confirmation! Easy peasy!
Check out how easy it is to use in the demo video below…
