If you cannot find what you are looking for, please reach out to Katherine Basaran at Katherine.Basaran@T2Systems.com
What is Connect?
Connect is T2’s annual customer conference. This information-packed, five-day event is attended by hundreds of parking professionals, who enthusiastically return year after year to learn about new technologies, participate in educational training sessions on T2 products, and experience invaluable networking and connections with industry experts and peers. While this year’s event is virtual, T2 is determined to still give the invaluable experience from years past.
Where is Connect 2020?
Connect will be held virtually this year using the Zoom platform. Once registered, attendees will be given access to a private T2 Virtual Connect Salesforce Community page.
What are the conference dates?
Connect 2020 will take place on Monday, October 26th through Friday, October 30th.
Who will be in attendance?
Parking professionals from across North America join us each year for Connect. Last year, we had more than 400 attendees. Our attendees represent a diverse background of organization sizes, types, and experience levels. With over 20+ different session offerings, there’s something for everyone. T2 employees will be involved throughout the entire week. Employees will be presenting as well as participating in roundtables and the virtual fun in the evenings.
Why should I attend?
Connect is the premier parking industry event, and a must-attend for all parking professionals. Connect gives you access to parking experts, new technologies, educational sessions, and customized training programs. Here are just a few reasons why Connect attendees return year after year:
- Informative and exciting product information
- Invaluable peer networking opportunities
- Special events and chances to win prizes
We know the event will look different this year due to it being completely virtual, but we hope that it will still be as engaging as years past. The general sessions will be over Zoom with a presenter and a moderator which will give attendees the opportunity to ask questions. Networking opportunities will be different but definitely still available. Virtual Connect will have nightly roundtable sessions that will give attendees the chance to network with each other and T2 employees. Fun Virtual events will be replacing special events, but there will still be plenty of chances to win prizes!
