In the three years since our last European Forum, we’ve experienced war, extreme weather patterns, labour shortages, surging material costs and the biggest health crisis of modern times. Infrastructure is a key conduit and catalyst for addressing these challenges, but what is the interplay between private and government capital, innovation and regulation?

Over the course of two days, with key players from the world of infrastructure finance, politics and economics, we will explore the “known knowns” in the context of today and near term disruption. Pivoting to the medium term, we will look at the “known unknowns” with forward-thinking analysis on climate resilience, automation and digitalisation. Finally, we will look to the “unknown unknowns” and the longer-term outlook for infrastructure and resilient investing.

To make your voice heard on the big issues, please register your interest to attend this limited capacity event on 13th and 14th October in Amsterdam.
