A lot of the planning for this year's event has gone into devising new ways for our partners to effectively connect with the audience. Informing our attendees of your involvement in the event will lead to more effective networking and help generate more one-on-one meetings while you are there. With that in mind, please join our online community. The sooner you can participate, the more visibility you receive.
P3s have seen much success within the student housing sector – so much success that they are now expanding into other types of facilities. Properly utilized, these partnerships can be an important development tool for colleges and universities, and meet the challenges presented by their institution’s need for new and renovated buildings.
Through a series of keynotes, case studies, panels, workshops, and diverse networking opportunities, attendees will deepen their understanding on the value proposition of P3s, and the role they can play in the delivery of essential campus infrastructure.
Over 100 leading industry practitioners will present their firsthand observations of P3 projects on campuses around the country. We will also offer multiple days of in-depth roundtable discussions for audience members interested in discussing specific issues in a more candid and interactive forum. Facilitated by some of our industry’s leading experts, participants will be able to ask questions and share experiences on specific case studies, targeted issues, and topics shaping the P3 landscape while meeting other project owners confronting similar challenges.
Specifically, our program will highlight the P3 arrangements employed by education institutions to successfully develop and construct a variety of assets including academic facilities, classrooms and labs, student housing, parking structures, athletic spaces and many more.
The 2017 program will address the best practices and lessons learned from active P3 projects in both the construction and operation phases. Universities will discuss how to drive innovation and value for money, how they came to finding the right risk transfer balance, and their expectations for the next 20-30 years.
Attendees with little experience in the development and operation of the P3 model will benefit from our industry experts presenting their knowledge, and valuable insights into market trends crucial for business decisions.
More seasoned professionals will benefit from our incredible networking opportunities with over 750 participating delegates, cultivate relationships with project owners, and learn new methods to address complex project delivery goals.
We will offer multiple daily breaks, receptions, one-on-one meeting areas, and specific events designed for you to meet P3 professionals, project owners, and a chance to reconnect with old colleagues.
