Join us on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at The Lansing Center in Lansing, Michigan for ULI Michigan’s 4th Annual Public-Private Partnership Forum. The P3 Forum brings together individuals from both the public and private sectors to discuss how both sides can mutually benefit through collaboration, policy, and practice.

The P3 Forum also features the Metro Marketplace, where exhibitors from non-profit development organizations, communities, and local governments can market their property listings, development plans, incentives and services to developers and financiers, and the private sector can showcase their services to the public sector community.
