We started CarParkAt back in 2014, offering parking services to events across the UK.
We fast became a market leader in the obstacle race sector, where we expanded our service to include stewarding, traffic and management services. We won the Inspiration Award at the 2015 British Parking Awards.
We began trading as CPA Events, expanding to service a wider variety of clients, including sporting events, agricultural shows, music events and festivals. Our offering also broadened to include planning and consultancy and traffic management.
In 2017 we saw a surge in demand for our services, with a series of music events and festivals adding to our client base. It was also then that we recognised a gap in the market for delivering a hybrid of traffic and pedestrian management services in zone ex. Our expertise in planning and consultancy continued to develop in line with the needs of our clients.
The company continued to grow in 2018; delivering 170 events as we established ourselves in London with the addition of several large-scale events.
This was the year we focussed on developing our consultancy and venue services. Alongside our new festival and major event clients, we grew our venue portfolio by over 50% in 2019, cementing venues as an important part of our business.
Whilst the industry has slowed we’ve been busy making some exciting changes. After 6 years of trading as CPA, we have rebranded the business to showcase our consultancy and external management solutions.
We welcome James Dutton of Method Events as a new board member, who has led on the rebrand and strategy as we transition from CPA to The Last Mile.
