Transforming Cities: Public-Private Partnerships (P3)

Limited Seating! Almost Sold Out! Join industry experts as they share best practices for financing, developing, operating and maintaining infrastructure projects.


Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Wharton/Penn Alumni and real estate development professionals are invited to attend this symposium exploring the role of public private partnerships (P3s) in the delivery of social infrastructure projects and addressing current infrastructure challenges. Industry experts will share best practices for bringing together the public and private sectors through innovative approaches to financing, developing, operating and maintaining infrastructure projects. Two panels will discuss the key current issues. The first panel will discuss social infrastructure P3s and the second will focus on the opportunities and challenges of P3 delivery in California.

Questions to be addressed include:
  • Is social infrastructure the next wave in the P3 sector?
  • What are the prospects for hospital and water/waste water P3s in the short-to-medium term?
  • What are the challenges posed by social infrastructure P3s and how do they differ from other P3 sectors?
  • California Experience: discussion of recent P3 transactions, “lessons learned” arising from such transactions and new transactions that are coming down the pipe.
  • How do the public sector partners select projects to pursue as P3s?
  • How do public sector partners weigh priorities and consider how to pay for needed investments?

  • Philippa Chadwick, Squire Sanders
  • Roderick Devlin, Squire Sanders
