After the successful passage of public-private partnership (P3) legislation during the 2016 session of the General Assembly, Tourism Secretary Don Parkinson will address the Kentucky Chamber’s P3 Conference, held Oct. 27-28 in Lexington, on the opportunities that come with the new law.
A strong advocate for public-private partnerships, Parkinson will be the keynote lunch speaker at the conference on October 27, and will discuss how P3s will be able to attract tourism, especially to our state parks system.
In a recent interview with The Bottom Line, Parkinson expressed his excitement for the Chamber’s P3 Conference and the benefit he feels it will bring to Kentuckians looking to understand the new law and getting involved.
“We are going to spread the word and we’re going to see what people are interested in coming forward with their ideas. But we think it’s a great opportunity for the Kentucky taxpayers and for outside business to come in to invest. It’s all good news,” Parkinson said.
The Kentucky P3: Public-Private Partnerships Conference, put on by The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with The National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP), will address the opportunities and obstacles facing the Commonwealth. The conference will provide an in-depth look at Kentucky’s new P3 legislation and what it means for businesses and government entities across the state.
The conference, set to take place October 27-28 at the Griffin Gate in Lexington, will be held over two days and feature many important speakers discussing P3.
