CCPPP Announces Programming for the 24th Annual National Conference - Innovating Our Future
The Canadian Council for Public Private Partnerships (CCPPP) is pleased to announce the program agenda for its 24th Annual National Conference – “Innovating Our Future”. The conference will take place at the Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto, Ontario on November 14 and 15, 2016.
“Since its inception in 1993, this conference has earned the reputation as the premiere worldwide gathering for all those engaged in public-private partnerships (P3s). We’re raising the bar in 2016,” says Mark Romoff, CCPPP President and CEO. “World renowned keynote speakers, international thought leaders and P3 influencers, and our high performance programming will focus on the subjects and ideas that drive the global P3 agenda.”
The two day program of the national conference will address major issues including Urbanization: How Cities are Shaping Our Future, Creating an Innovation Culture in the Transit Sector, A Dialogue with Canada’s P3 Agencies, and Facing the Cyber Threat.
Day one will also feature – P3 FUNDAMENTALS - a concurrent, standalone seminar on the basics of public-private partnerships. This is a development opportunity for those who are new to or less experienced in the P3 space. The program includes interactive sessions and presentations on risk transfer, value for money, the role of the procurement agencies, and we’ll walk through two P3 case studies.
In addition, on day two of the conference, the afternoon sessions will be specifically devoted to P3 opportunities in the bi-national Great Lakes Region. CCPPP presents “Great Lakes Infrastructure Exchange”, in co-operation with our U.S. counterpart, the National Council for Public-Private Partnerships and the Council of the Great Lakes Region.
“This is “triple threat” programming,” says Romoff. “High level issues viewed through the lens of innovation, a focus on the fundamentals of public-private partnerships and an all-important pipeline discussion in one of North America’s biggest P3 markets.”
An added value to the high performance programming is the depth of networking opportunities attendees enjoy during two days in Toronto. There are some 1,200 senior government and business leaders from around the world who gather, meet, share stories, and inspire business partnerships.
