Join SMPS Central Florida for a half-day event focused on the future of education and the new opportunities public-private partnership (P3) can bring. Our panel will discuss the nuances of this delivery system which make it unique, input on how to employ it successfully, the net effect for private sector developers and support professionals (architects, engineers, contractors, attorneys, bankers and real estate brokers), and the benefits to universities and state colleges.
