This conference took place from June 20th-22nd, 2012 at the Port of Spain Ballroom, HYATT Regency, Port of Spain.

This conference brought together local, regional and international experts in the field of revenue management in the context of a dominant hydrocarbon sector, as well as to enhance the resource revenue management process in Trinidad and Tobago.

Professor Richard Auty, Professor Emeritus of Economic Geography at Lancaster University, was the feature speaker. Specially invited guests included Professor Clement Sankat, The UWI St. Augustine Campus Principal; Mr. Ewart Williams, Governor of the Central Bank; Mr. Maurice Suite, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance; Dr. Hunter Monre, International Development Bank; Mrs. Valarie Mercer-Blackman, Inter-American Development Bank; Indera Sagewan-Alli, Caribbean Centre for Competiveness, UWI; and Mr. Matthew Genasci, Revenue Watch Institute.

One highlight of the conference was the presentation of prizes to the winners of its essay competition for secondary school students. This competition specifically targeted CAPE students who are studying Economics and required participants to write on the topic: In what ways can the foreign companies operating in the energy sector become more active in sustainable development in Trinidad and Tobago? Monetary prizes and trophies were awarded to the writers of the best three essays.
