The Scientific and Technical Committee for the 19th EPA Congress and Exhibition has set out the main topic areas that will be presented and discussed in Malaga
The title of the Congress will be:
"Key solutions for urban mobility".
The format of the congress will see many parallel sessions that will enable the delegates to choose what discussions they would like to follow. The plenary sessions will be significant moments where key note presentations will take place.
We will be examining the overall parking and urban mobility situation in Europe. EPA will present its position paper that will represent an open discussion on the mobility world and the role of the parking industry.
