The theme for this year's North American Leadership Forum is "Creating an Integrated Infrastructure Vision", calling on industry experts and policymakers to stop thinking in terms of infrastructure verticals in order to simulate a more integrated vision for North America's competitiveness. The vision should capture the imagination, call us to action, and focus our action, to promote infrastructure investment and economic competitiveness.
In addition to 50+ project presentations, the Forum catalyzes discussions through deep-dive workshops. An additional highlight of the 6th North American Leadership Forum is the "Making the Grade 2.5" session, which will take place as a Special Breakfast on October 29th. We will continue the discussion started at the Making the Grade 2 symposium, which included keynote presentations from U.S. Rep. John Delaney (D-MD6) and Andrés Gluski of AES Corp. The event launched the extraordinary Making the Grade Report, which detailed a six-point plan focused on revitalizing America's infrastructure leadership, creating an across-the-board increase in U.S. infrastructure investment.
The forum will be held Oct. 28 to 30, 2014 at the Mayflower Renaissance in Washington, D.C.
