Build connections with investors in infrastructure

The Global Investor Offsite was the industry’s half-year marker. Attendees explored how markets are faring, how investors’ appetite is changing and set their strategy in this rapidly changing environment.

The event enabled the industry to catch up with old colleagues and make new connections with the 800+ Global Passport members. They met and interacted with investors, managers and the global advisory community across three regions and time zones.

Attendees took time out from the day job, turned off their emails and took stock of what’s happening in the world of infrastructure.

Networking at the Global Investor Offsite

The Global Investor Offsite featured a number of scheduled interactive networking sessions across different formats to ensure everyone got the most out of their time at the event.

 

Attendees shared challenges and brainstormed strategies during roundtable discussions

Lead by an expert moderator, our roundtables brought together senior infrastructure investors and managers to share challenges, discuss strategies and helped set their future direction on a range of industry topics.

Attendees selected the topic that matters most to them and had an open discussion with their peers.

Attendees met more people with our speed networking sessions

Replicating the experience of bumping into people in the networking room, attendees joined and were matched with other event attendees for a randomly allocated video chat.

Attendees got to know their fellow Passport holders via our quickfire, four-minute speed networking sessions. They participated in a series of randomly generated meetings to help them meet their peers. They could then follow up afterwards via the Passport directory to continue the conversation.

We helped attendees meet the right people

Whatever their area of interest, our themed ‘birds of a feather’ networking sessions allowed attendees to quickly identify other attendees with the same focus.

They could jump into one of our themed rooms to meet contacts and discuss their selected topics.

Attendees met the speakers face-to-face

Each topic was followed by a dedicated ‘meet the speakers’ Q&A session.  Attendees turned on their camera and audio to discuss the topic with the speakers and put their questions to them face-to-face.

Chat and arrange 1-2-1 video meetings

Whether they wanted to catch up with an old colleague or make a new contact at a specific organisation, event attendees could search for the individual contacts from the delegate list and message them to arrange online video meetings throughout the three days of the event.

Once they had set up their meeting, they could invite other event attendees to join.
