Call For Presentations

Now, more than ever, the local AEC industry will be looking for inspiration from companies and industry leaders who have risen above the COVID-19 Pandemic downturn and succeeded.

Aside from getting certified as an MWSDBE, firms have had to change how they are working on projects by utilizing emerging technologies, improved practices and new ways to motivate and communicate with their teams. As well as the real need to work more productively while building important relationships with specialty contractors.

New this year, the ENR: Port Authority of New York & New Jersey Conference is looking to add engaging speakers who have worked with - or are currently working on - Port Authority related projects. Specifically, firms that have been successful at growing their business as a result of working with the Port Authority. We want to inspire upcoming MWSDBE contractors and GCs with case study success stories and best practices. For 2020 we are only looking to fill a couple of time slots, so space will be limited.

If you have something you feel would benefit the conference attendees, please submit an abstract to present at the ENR: Port Authority of New York & New Jersey Conference taking place on September 18, 2020 in New York City. This is your opportunity to get in front of hundreds of attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and the Port Authority NY/NJ with your message and expertise.
