P3Connect 2016 to Focus on ‘What’s Next’ in P3s

P3Connect 2016 to Focus on ‘What’s Next’ in P3sThe National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP), a nonprofit educational leader for P3s, will host P3Connect 2016, its premier event of the year, June 27-29 in Chicago.

This year, P3Connect will center on the theme of “What’s Next” for P3s, examining where various industries are headed with regard to public-private partnerships through the eyes of thought leaders.

P3Connect will be presented though a new event format in 2016, as NCPPP will introduce a series of four sector-focused Symposiums — each serving like a conference within the conference. The Symposiums are designed to lay the groundwork for soon-to-be launched P3 centers of excellence in the areas of Transportation, Water, Energy and Real Estate/Social Infrastructure. Each Symposium is being organized by a working group whose members specifically were selected based on their leadership and experience within their respective sector.

Also new to P3Connect this year are a series of high-level Trend Talks covering subjects critical to the future of P3s and Partnership Idea Labs featuring honest discussions about how to advance P3s. NCPPP is also bringing back its popular P3 101 Bootcamp for people new to the field and introducing an intermediary level P3 201 Bootcamp for those who are ready to take the next step.

Exemplary projects and visionary leaders will be honored as part of the 2016 National Public-Private Partnership Awards from NCPPP during P3Connect 2016. Awards will be presented in four categories: Leadership Award; Infrastructure project; Innovation Project; and Service Project.

All events for P3Connect 2016 will take place at Venue SIX10, a conference center across from Grant Park in downtown Chicago. For more information about P3Connect 2016, visit the event website at www.p3connect2016.org.
