2018 SUMMIT: SITE VISIT

The 2018 Southeast Region Federal Construction, Infrastructure and Environmental Summit welcomes registered attendees of the Summit to participate in the pre-Summit activity site visit at the US Coast Guard Sector North Carolina Headquarters followed by the North Carolina Port in Wilmington. 

WHEN. October 24, 2018, see below timeline for check-in and arrival information.  

WHERE.
A trolley will shuttle registered site visit attendees from the Wilmington Convention Center to US Coast Guard Sector North Carolina and North Carolina Port and return to the Wilmington Convention Center.  

NOTE: You must be registered to attend the site visit on your Summit registration – no exceptions.  Specific questions are required for security purposes at both locations and must be submitted in advance to the venues.  This is a first-come, first-served opportunity as limited space is available on the trolley and during the tours.  We ask that all participants ride on the trolley to guarantee each tour remains on time.  All participants must have their driver’s license with them at the Port.  

ABOUT THE TOUR.
At the USCG Sector North Carolina you will have the opportunity to tour the Command Center and receive a briefing from leadership about the Sector North Carolina’s oversight of operational Coast Guard missions throughout the entire State of North Carolina. The Sector’s primary missions includes Search and Rescue, Marine Safety, Ports and Waterways Coastal Security, Marine Environmental Protection, Aids to Navigation, Maritime Law Enforcement, and Recreational Boating Safety. The State of North Carolina is home to some of the nation’s most diverse aquatic habitats, including 23 species of threatened sea turtles, birds, whales, fish, and sea grasses.  North Carolina’s busy waterways boast a robust commercial ferry system, two major international ports, and a commercial fishing fleet of over 9000 vessels.  The challenging environment beset by shifting sands, shallow inlets, and the constant threat of hurricanes make North Carolina waterways some of the most difficult to navigate. 

Following the USCG Sector North Carolina visit, the trolley will take participants to the North Carolina Port to learn more about the unique port systems in the state.  The Port of Wilmington has four post-Panamax container cranes. Not on this tour, but will be discussed, is the Port of Morehead City, just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Both offer extensive warehousing and open storage, and both provide easy access to interstate highways and major railroads. Port customers experience the fastest turn times on the United States East Coast. And the Port’s expanding storage capabilities, including Wilmington’s 101,000-square-foot, on-terminal cold storage facility, can accommodate more customers than ever.
