International Parking Institute
June 3 – 6, Orlando, FL
Parking affects virtually every driver on the planet. The 2018 IPI Conference & Expo is the world's largest space for parking professionals to network. Industry experts and trainers will interact with and educate attendees on the latest parking trends and profitable ideas. Our Autostacker parking lift will be showcased as a brand new means of adding parking space without expanding or excavating. We'll show how you can recoup your expansion investment in days, not years, when you choose Autostacker. Registration is open now!
GFX Government Fleet

Now in its 11th year, GFX represents the largest community of public fleets. You must be employed by a public agency to register for a Fleet Full Conference or Fleet Exhibits Only Pass. The gathering there is absolutely massive and growing bigger each year. If you're involved in the parking community, whether you own parking lots/structures or sell parking equipment, you need to be there. Autostacker will be showcased for its small parking footprint and cost-saving potential in virtually all public parking applications. Early registration saves $100, so join ASAP!
Iola Old Car Show
July 12 – 14, Iola WI
This massive swap meet is a totally family friendly show for anyone who loves amazing cars and a chance to pick up some new gear at great prices. Classic restorations are even available for purchase. Thousands of vehicles will be on display, and the show is a major draw in 2018 for auto celebrities like Jo Coddington and—hey!—Henry Winkler. QuickJack is going to be there too, so be on the lookout for the #1 portable car lift in the world. And, if you already have a QuickJack, don't be afraid to stop by and say hello while you walk all 300 acres that the Iola Car Show has to offer. Tickets are super cheap and registration is open to all.
Goodwood Festival of Speed
July 12 – 15, Chichester, West Sussex, England
Goodwood promises a spectacle of rare, glamorous and incredibly speedy cars for all four days of the Festival of Speed. Plan to see Classic cars, Formula 1 racers, drag racers, supercars, etc. There's no other event of its kind that's as big, so if the name of the event isn't enough to get your blood pumping, this place simply isn't for you. QuickJack will be represented in a booth there, since racers and dragsters need a way to get their cars off the ground at the track quickly, safely and reliably—and only QuickJack can do that right! It's bound to be a sellout event, and some packages are already completely sold out. If you're interested, register for the Festival of Speed before it's too late.
Hot August Nights
August 7 - 12, Reno, NV
Come celebrate the 50s, 60s and 70s with this awesome classic car show for three glorious nights in August. Headlining acts are always a treat in the evening, and over 225,000 attendees will flock from around the globe to see classic cars paraded up and down the street. The Atlantis Casino is host to this event, as hundreds of vendors, along with QuickJack and BendPak, will be on-site with show specials you simply can't miss. This is one of the longest-lasting shows we're ever going to do, so expect us to go all-out with everything we offer!
Corvettes at Carlisle
August 23 – 26, Carlisle, PA
This is the nation's biggest Corvette event, and it's one of the most popular annual car shows period. Every Chevy lover has to make the pilgrimage at some point to the great Carlisle site, where Corvettes new and old will pack in as far as the eye can see. The first year QuickJack attended, people were amazed that their low-profile Corvettes were an ideal fit for our low-profile portable car lift, so we've been coming back several years in a row. Expect to see us there to make a huge splash—again—for newcomers and Carlisle veterans alike. Get your tickets and plan your trip right here.
Festival of Motoring
August 31 – September 2, Johannesburg, South Africa
South Africa is a land of car lovers. The people there are amazing, and the love of racing is felt in every moment of every event. There's literally something for everyone here. Pit areas, shops and retail centers, supercar events, test drives and more are all open to the public. The showrunners boast that they're South Africa's only national motor show with OEM participation, but there's so much to see, all you need to attend is a passion for rubber, steel and the lingering scent of sweet combustion. It's not an expensive show, so get registered and go have some fun.
