Global Investor Forum

Emerging Markets Forum

Connect with infrastructure leaders from around the globe

Meet the entire industry under one roof

Make valuable connections with decision-makers

First time attendee? A warm welcome!

We understand that first impressions are often lasting impressions and we want to ensure your first visit to the Global Summit is worthwhile.

There are multiple forums, private meetings and public networking, seminars and streams all taking place under one roof. With 2,500+ attendees across the Summit week, this is a large event with a lot going on daily. To help our many new attendees, we’ve put together a ‘first-timers’ guide to help you make the most out of your time at the Summit.

1.

Decide which forums to attend

There are seven forums running across the four days of the Summit. 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.

Explore the week here or download the event brochure to find out more.

2.

Dedicated registration area and onsite helpdesk

Check into the event from Monday morning and pick up your badge and event guide at our special newcomers’ desk.

If you need help with finding your way around onsite, come to our dedicated helpdesk at the venue. The team can help you navigate the various forums, access and make use of the mobile guide and networking app, and locate public and private meeting spaces.

3.

Register at the early rate for maximum savings

Ticket savings are available up to 6 weeks before the event and the earlier you book, the bigger the saving. There are also savings for package bookings when you book multiple forums and days as well as group bookings when you bring members of your team with you. Speak to one of our team who can talk you through the options available and help you build the best package for you and your team.

4.

Set your objectives and plan your networking

Consider your objectives for the Summit and plan your schedule accordingly. Details of keynotes, sessions, workshops and scheduled networking events are available online before the event so keep an eye out on which topics you want to attend and the speakers you most want to hear from.

Networking is a key feature of the event, so make use of our technology to help plan your meetings in advance. Once you’ve booked your place, you will be able to access the event app to send meeting requests and build your agenda before you arrive. There are also dedicated tables on site themed around key sectors, geographies and strategies.

5.

Dedicated newcomers’ lounge

Visit our newcomers’ lounge to get your bearings, meet fellow first-timers and take a tour of the venue and technology from our team. Meet with our concierge and let them help you run through your plans for Summit week.
