Public-Private Partnerships: Project by Project

Show me the money! In changing economic times, securing financing can be challenging, to say the least. This is particularly true when the total costs and returns of large projects are often difficult to estimate...and equally difficult to quantify and contain. You have heard the buzz about P3; there are plenty of questions in the industry about how it works and whom it benefits.


Would you be interested in finding out how you might amortize the cost of large projects through an airport's operating budget instead of your capital budget? Listen to the experts talk about ways to manage capital planning and risk through a private-public partnership.


In this FREE one-hour webinar, our panel of experts discuss new and innovative financing approaches for airport project funding as well as ways to form a successful partnership. The assembled team of panelists are experienced from the airport, technology, and consulting side. From project planning and financing through execution and analysis, these experts are willing to share their strategies for repeatedly producing results.


Hear how leading professionals recommend this partnership-by-project approach to funding your airport improvements.
