Manchester-based online parking reservation leader, ParkVia, has celebrated two significant award achievements, culminating a successful first half of 2019 for the airport parking retailer.
Having previously announced in April that the company had been awarded its second prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade under its former brand name (ParkCloud), Managing Director Mark Pegler has now received official recognition from HRH The Prince of Wales.
In a reception held at Buckingham Palace, Mark, together with Commercial Director Dr Valentina Moise, joined the UK’s other 128 International Trade winners to celebrate the innovative services being provided by British businesses to countries across the globe.
In addition to the Queen’s Award reception, ParkVia has also been recognised by the International Parking and Mobility Institute (IPMI) this week at its annual conference in Anaheim, California.
IPMI’s Marketing Awards recognise outstanding parking and mobility-related marketing, public relations and communications programmes that demonstrate innovation through multi-faceted campaigns.
ParkVia was presented with the esteemed industry accolade, having impressed the judges with its thought-provoking campaign surrounding the PARK(ing) Day initiative, which shone the spotlight onto the need to creatively revamp urban parking areas.
Together with European parking operator, Q-Park, ParkVia’s campaign concluded in an event to showcase the best of the North West’s young artistic talent as part of PARK(ing) Day’s international celebrations in September 2018.
Speaking about the company’s recent achievements, ParkVia’s Commercial Director, Dr Valentina Moise, said: “It has been a very rewarding week for the team, not only being championed by HRH The Prince of Wales, but also being recognised by our industry peers internationally. We’re delighted that the business is growing from strength to strength and it’s extremely gratifying to see the team’s efforts recognised by such prominent awarding bodies.”
