We’re looking forward to hosting you at P3 2023!

Our Annual Conference is globally recognized as the foremost infrastructure conference in Canada and is the only place where all aspects of infrastructure delivery are represented.

After two years away, it was great to reunite our industry in-person last year in celebration of our 30th anniversary. And what an event it was! Friendships were renewed and made, we were brought up to speed on the prospects for our industry, and I am certain that a deal or two were done during the networking opportunities over the two days.

But we also heard from you about some things you’d like to change. You want even more networking opportunities, a greater variety of session formats, more in-depth discussions on issues of note, a more dynamic and engaging CCPPP National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in P3s to ignite the excitement and celebration that our nominees and award winners deserve, and more variety in our reception offerings to better reflect and embrace all delegates.

Hand-in-hand with the continuing evolution of the Canadian P3 infrastructure sector, we also need to innovate and evolve to promote excellence, attract new companies and governments to the sector and grow the Canadian pipeline of projects. So, you’ll notice some differences this year as we modernize and try new things, all while being able to deliver the benefits the conference is known for.

Most importantly, we will again create an environment where we can challenge each other to think differently and to harness innovative thinking on how best to adapt the P3 model and deliver the infrastructure and services that are so important to Canadians. Let’s continue to have those fierce, friendly, and productive conversations!

I have said it before, but it bears repeating, we are so fortunate to have so much experience and expertise amongst our membership. People who grasp the importance of getting back to the fundamentals of what we do and how we do it and putting the magical third P – “partnership” – back at the forefront of the model.

I look forward to seeing you there!
