Register today for our upcoming November 6th Fly-In, Fly-Out Seminar: "Land Use at Pacific Ports: Balancing Trade, Industrial, and Community Needs."

Please join us for a timely seminar on land use and real estate issues facing Pacific ports. With ports of all sizes controlling real estate near municipalities, find out how to balance your port’s traditional trade and transportation needs with the modern pressures of the surrounding community’s needs and adjoining land uses. Learn how to maximize the value of port real estate, properly develop and manage properties, and when it makes sense to work with municipalities for revenue generation of non-traditional port uses for both short and long term.

Hear firsthand perspectives from key port leaders and industry experts, learn what's new at other ports, and network with colleagues -- all in sunny San Diego, California!

Here is the full lineup of excellent confirmed speakers for the seminar:

  • Randa Coniglio, Executive Vice President of Operations, Port of San Diego, California USA

  • Kim B. Puzey, General Manager, Port of Umatilla, Oregon USA

The seminar begins at 9:30 a.m. and concludes at 3:00 p.m. at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Old Town San Diego, conveniently located near the San Diego International Airport (complimentary shuttle service provided), so you can easily fly in and out of San Diego that same day.
