SP+ to Offer Expedited Parking Services at Annual American Quarter Horse Congress

CHICAGO, Sept. 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Plus Corporation (Nasdaq:SP), a leading national provider of parking, ground transportation and related products and services to commercial, institutional and municipal clients throughout North America, announced implementation of an expedited parking process for attendees of the 49th Annual All American Quarter Horse Congress (AAQHC) to be held in October at the Ohio Expo Center (OEC) in Columbus. SP+ has been providing its parking management services at the OEC since 2002.

Attendees at this year's AAQHC will be able to pre-purchase and print their parking passes in advance at www.quarterhorsecongress.com or www.columbusparking.spplus.com. Those doing so will enter the OEC parking lots via dedicated Express Lanes accessible only to drivers displaying the prepaid passes. Drivers without prepaid passes will access the parking lots by paying on-site cashiers in traditional entry lanes. Attendees will have the option of purchasing parking passes either for a single day or the entire event.

The AAQHC is the largest single breed horse show in the world. It attracts more than 650,000 people to the Columbus area, comprised of exhibitors, special event spectators, and trade show participants. This year's show runs from October 1-25 and is expected to generate approximately $200 million for the central Ohio economy.
