Transportation Finance/P3 Conference

Can We Afford to Keep Waiting?
Austerity has no power to move a container and budget cuts have never untangled a traffic jam. After decades of underinvestment, the nations inadequate and sometimes failing infrastructure is increasingly holding the economy back costing businesses and individuals more than $100 billion per year in lost productivity.
But the mounting economic losses and increasingly-visible safety risks are beginning to help advocates for new projects turn the tide. Infrastructures up-front costs remain imposing, but public- and private-sector advocates are working harder to make sure the public and policy makers count the cost of doing nothing and appreciate the opportunity for economic growth from greater transportation efficiency.
Learn from the leaders and get your project moving
Join us at The Bond Buyers Transportation Finance Conference to find out how public-sector agencies and other stakeholders around the nation have built coalitions to draw on varied sources of financial and political support to push needed projects from conception through financial close. The conference agenda will provide actionable information you can apply, including:
- Insight into how the still-fragile global economy is driving fundamental demand for transportation capacity
- Strategies to measure and manage the volatility in the interest-rate markets that can have a massive impact on a projects cost-benefit balance
- Case studies on how to structure projects to win financing from nontraditional sources, including detailed discussions of the TIFIA program and successful P3s like the Ohio River Bridges
- Plus, predictions about new revenue sources that could augument the dwindling gas tax and other disruptive shifts facing the transportation industry.
All transportation modes including roads and bridges, airports, ports, and transit need to adopt new tactics to keep their networks up to date in a time of austerity budgets. Get the advice and analytical tools you need in Chicago this November.
