Conference to Follow Up President's Port Investment Push

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

The upcoming Infocast presented 'Port & Intermodal Finance & Investment Summit' will be hosted & sponsored by the Port of Miami, FL.

President Obama recently outlined a program of bonds and other measures to encourage such spending on roads, bridges and ports when he spoke at the Port of Miami. "Investing in infrastructure not only makes our roads, bridges, and ports safer and gives our businesses and workers the tools to compete successfully in the global economy, it also creates thousands of good American jobs that cannot be outsourced," the White House said in a statement to "Rebuild America Partnership."

The Port & Intermodal Finance & Investment Summit, April 16-18, 2013, will bring together port authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, intermodal carriers and financial players to share their perspectives, establish a constructive dialogue, build understanding and ultimately develop the financial models that will support the pipeline of capital intensive projects on the drawing board. The Summit will serve as the major venue where the port, intermodal and financial communities gather to engage in the important work of creating new financial structures and to network in order to establish ongoing relationships.

Key players from the port, intermodal and financial communities participating in the summit include Hon. Governor Haley Barbour, Founding Partner of the BGR Group, who will be the keynote speaker and representatives from the Jacksonville Port Authority, APM Terminals, the Florida Department of Transportation, Goldman Sachs, the Port of Miami, Virginia Port Authority and Port of Houston Authority, along with many more.
