Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships announces November conference

TORONTO, Ont.–The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships has announced its annual CCPPP National Conference, “P3 – Delivering our Infrastructure Legacy” which is taking place November 3 and 4, 2014, in Toronto, at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.

The Annual CCPPP National Conference began in 1992 and has since grown to include over 1,200 senior public and private sector participants, making it the largest annual gathering of P3 decision-makers, said the CCPPP.

In response to the P3 2013 survey, 96% of delegates and speakers said that the conference met their goals and 91% indicated that they would recommend the conference to others.

This “must-attend” annual P3 event attracts a wide range of participants from the public sector at the municipal, provincial/territorial and federal levels across Canada as well as aboriginal communities. The private sector delegates at the conference represent a cross-section of P3-related professions, including law, finance, construction, engineering, project management, architecture, consulting, communications, real estate development and building services. There are also a number of attendees from other countries looking for Canadian opportunities or best practices.

The sessions at the conference include engaging discussions on a diversity of P3 projects, issues and best practices from Canada and other countries. Along with reflecting the areas of P3-related expertise, conference panels also touch on a wide range of sectors, including healthcare, transportation, transit, water/wastewater, justice & corrections, social housing, education, energy, and government service delivery. At the end of the two days, participants leave with a solid grasp of current issues and innovative ideas on how to take their P3 projects to the next level.
