2024 Midwinter Meeting

January 25-26, 2024

Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas, NV


Join us at the ABA Forum on Construction Law’s 2024 Midwinter Meeting – Power Play: Game-Changing Strategies for Power Projects. The Program will be held at the fabulous Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. We will be learning about power projects in a city of lights that can be seen from space.  

This Program could not be more timely given the proliferation of power projects fostered by government support for green energy. Power projects are no longer the massive, infrequent projects undertaken by a select few. If you are not working on power projects now, you will be soon. This Program will provide an incredible foundation for lawyers and consultants on the issues associated with the construction of power projects and similar complex construction.

The Program promises to engage both new and seasoned attorneys alike, with plenary sessions covering introductory and advanced topics related to power project and megaproject construction. Attendees will gain pivotal understanding about the challenges and opportunities facing today’s energy projects and leave with ideas and strategies that can be put into practice right away – all from experts at the leading edge of their fields. 

Session topics include:

  • The future of US energy projects as we move to net zero
  • Best practices for managing claims on megaprojects
  • Innovative strategies for financing power projects
  • Stakeholder management planning
  • The best insurance solutions for megaproject risk management
  • Ethical considerations when representing joint ventures

We recognize the value of your time, and our goal is to create an enriching experience that is not only informative but also engaging. The discussions are designed to provide you with actionable insights, strategies, and tools to apply in your projects and organizations. 

In addition, Peter Arceo, Chief Gaming Officer, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, will provide some unique perspectives on tribal gaming operations, including the acquisition of the Palms Hotel and Casino, the first casino in Las Vegas to be tribally owned and operated.

And while the conference will undoubtedly be filled with enlightening discussions and networking opportunities, we are also planning for a bit of fun in the dazzling city of Las Vegas, home to the Stanley Cup Champions, the Golden Knights. We have included a comprehensive “Las Vegas Guide”, outlining the numerous attractions, dining experiences, and entertainment options available in the city. Whether you're interested in a Cirque du Soleil performance, world-class dining, or a tour of the legendary Las Vegas Strip, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
