Today’s leaders. Tomorrow’s infrastructure. The Global Summit.

The Infrastructure Investor Global Summit is the annual meeting place for the industry’s most influential practitioners to build your network and shape the future of the asset class. The 2020 Summit will be the 14th year we have gathered in Berlin and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Featured keynote: planning infrastructure for the future

Lord John Browne
Former CEO, BP
Executive Chairman, L1 Energy

Lord Browne’s new book ‘Make, Think, Imagine’ has as its central idea that every society needs to think big and plan physical infrastructure for the future. But few governments and political leaders do this in practice. Browne calls for greater imagination in planning and design and explains how this can deliver infrastructure of greater boldness and better quality.

He will discuss the changing nature of global energy markets, including the effect of climate change on the business model of companies operating in extractive industries and the risks posed by investing in potentially stranded assets.

The flagship Global Investor Forum runs across two days on Tuesday and Wednesday, with co-located specialist forums running either side on Monday and Thursday. Build your package based on the subjects most relevant to your role and your company’s objectives. It isn’t possible to do everything, so lots of our attendees partner with colleagues to cover sessions happening at the same time.
