In addition to handling cargo and passengers, many ports rely on income produced from leasing commercial, industrial and retail property in their portfolio of assets. This program will address the specialized concerns of port directors, port planners, property development and real estate managers, marketing managers, and business and trade development managers whose responsibilities include managing or marketing their port’s real estate portfolio. Industry experts and panel discussion topics will address port real estate, non-cargo business, commercial, retail and industrial property utilization, and financing. Special emphasis will also be placed on public-private partnerships, strategic asset utilization, use of port property to advance cargo development opportunities, effective port property lease structures and best practices in property management.
