ParkWhiz and ShowClix Team Up to Improve the Event Experience by Solving the Parking Problem
Ticketing and parking platforms partner to increase attendance by providing inexpensive, guaranteed parking to attendees
Chicago, IL January 13, 2015 – ParkWhiz, Inc., the leading parking platform that makes it easy to find and pay for parking from any device, today announced a strategic partnership with ShowClix, a full-service ticketing company that helps event organizers provide the best possible experience for attendees.
The integration of ParkWhiz's API provides a rich layer of real-time parking availability, which enables ShowClix attendees to purchase a guaranteed parking spot along with their tickets. The parking feature is accessed at the checkout and order confirmation pages, and is also included in communications sent out leading up to the event.
ParkWhiz intends to enhance the ticket-holders’ experience by making it convenient to take care of their travel itinerary all at once, and the ParkWhiz app even navigates users en route to their selected parking destinations.
"Most people don’t start looking for parking until they've reached their destination," said ParkWhiz CEO Aashish Dalal. "This partnership further propels the type of driver behavior that will shape the future of the industry, where people know where they’re going to park as soon as they know where they’re going. ShowClix is a progressive platform and we’re excited to enhance the experience they provide with a simple click of a button."
Because the vast majority of congestion around high volume events is caused by people circling the block looking for a place to park, the all-in-one ticket and parking experience should also improve traffic flow around event venues.
"We want to help our ticketing partners to provide the best possible experience for their attendees," ShowClix CTO Nate Good said. "And that starts well before they even reach the venue. ParkWhiz allows us to make parking a non-issue for customers, and we believe that this incredibly convenient system can improve attendance, as well as the experience itself."
ParkWhiz pioneered the e-parking category in 2006, and started out with a bang, parking 20% of that year’s Super Bowl attendees. In addition to owning the event parking market, with coverage near almost every major venue in the country and partnerships with some of professional and collegiate sports’ biggest names, ParkWhiz offers hourly and monthly parking in over 150 cities nationwide.
Headquartered in Chicago, ParkWhiz is the e-parking industry leader. The company's website and mobile platforms provide a fast and efficient way for drivers to find and book guaranteed parking spaces before reaching their destination at thousands of parking locations across the country, from NYC, to Chicago to San Francisco. ParkWhiz is an official partner of StubHub and TicketsNow and the company also partners with professional sports teams including the Indianapolis Colts, US Airways Center, NCAA teams, and other sport and entertainment venues.
