Let's Connect . . . in L.A.
Given the global implications of burgeoning urbanization and the stewardship of existing and new infrastructure, it is time for cities, regional and national governments, as well as many other stakeholders, particularly engineers and expert sustainability resilience professionals, to come together in multi-disciplinary teams to identify and undertake practical actions to address national and global challenges we are currently facing and expect to face in the future.
Let’s Connect . . . in L.A., is a special outreach forum to connect engineers, technical experts, policy makers, academia, developers, infrastructure investors, governments, asset managers, philanthropy, social impact investors, and the insurance industry. By bringing all minds to one room, Let’s Connect aims to promote discussion about specific business and partnership opportunities among owners (public/private), suppliers, consultants, designers, contractors, constructors, small businesses, and other interested parties.
Being held as a transformational event during ICSI 2019, registered participants who also sign up for Let’s Connect will have scheduled opportunities to meet with selected categories of stakeholders, including but not limited to key infrastructure owners and agencies from water, power, sanitation/waste/recycling, transportation, P3 infrastructure investors and others, for short roundtable conversations about current and future key programs and upcoming key contracts and partnering opportunities.
Registered Let’s Connect . . . in L.A. attendees, will receive a detailed listing of participants, sessions, and instructions on how to sign up for specific connections prior to the conference.
This event can be added to your registration at no additional cost.
