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.

On-site helpdesk

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.

A new way to experience the Infrastructure Investor Global Summit

Join us in Berlin or take part online

In these uncertain times, staying connected with the community and hearing what the future looks like for infrastructure is more important than ever. That is why the Global Summit will be available as a virtual experience alongside the event in Berlin. While we are excited to welcome those who are able to join us in Berlin at the Hilton this October, we understand that this may not be possible for everyone.

Therefore, this year the event will take place in Berlin for those who are able to attend but virtual attendance is also an option. By bringing together physical and digital attendees, the Global Summit is still able to offer you the best networking experience with an even wider audience for you to connect with.

Your options explained

Attending the event in Berlin

Benefit from all the fantastic content and networking in person and enjoy a break from your desk to join the infrastructure community.

With a physical attendee ticket, you will also have access to the virtual event so can benefit from on demand viewing. This will  allow you to watch any sessions you may have missed and you can also connect with those who are unable to attend in person.

BOOK NOW

Attending the event virtually

This option gives you remote access to the event, allowing you to take part in the Infrastructure Investor Global Summit from anywhere, anytime.

You’ll have access to all sessions in real time or on demand. Virtual networking allows you to connect with the online attendees and those in Berlin. Virtual access will start four weeks before the event and will be available until the end of January.

Virtual Pass FAQs

Below we have answered some FAQs to help give you a greater understanding of what the platform is and is not. If you have any other questions that aren’t answered here please email customerservices@peimedia.com.

General

1.

So, what is it?

The Infrastructure Investor Global Summit virtual platform will replicate all the best parts of the in-person conference experience.
You can:
– Watch live panel sessions happening in Berlin and ask questions of the speakers
– Watch and download recordings of the panels at a time more convenient for you, with the platform open until the end of January 2021
– Network with delegates who are both attending in-person in Berlin and those tuning in from around the globe just as you are from 4 weeks prior to the event until the end of January 2021
– Participate in virtual roundtables and themed networking rooms to discuss the topics that matter to you with like-minded peers

2.

How do I access the platform?

The platform will launch 4 weeks out from the event. As a registered attendee, you will be sent a unique code to access the platform. That code is unique to you and cannot be shared with anyone else, just like other password-protected sites.

3.

How will I know how to use the platform?

We will run a full introductory webinar with the functionality of the platform and the Infrastructure Investor team is available to help you out at any point. The advantage of launching it 4 weeks out is that we can help you iron out any issues you might be having with plenty of time before the event!

Content

1.

Do I need to sit in front of my laptop all day?

No. There will be live content (which is where you can take part in live Q&As), but all content will be made on demand until the end of January 2021, so you can watch any session at a time convenient to you.

The discussion rooms will also be live until the end of January 2021 to add your viewpoint to a conversation and catch up on the live comments from the conference if you cannot make a session. You can also direct message speakers of interest to ask them questions or schedule a meeting if you enjoyed their presentation or panel discussion after the fact.

2.

I have watched enough webinars over the past 6 months, why would I want more?

We hear you – which is why we have structured the platform to ensure you are part of the conversation. You will be able to:

– Ask questions of panel speakers during the session
– Spend time face-to-face via video conference with speakers to ask questions after the session
– Join roundtables to discuss the topics that matter to you with like-minded peers
– Focused networking breaks where you can discuss the strategies and opportunities you are interested in
– Pop in to sponsor booths to connect via video and discuss their offerings or a presentation that they just gave

3.

What if I forget a session I want to attend is on?

You can build your own personal agenda within the platform and opt-in to receive notifications when sessions are about to begin. Of course, you can always watch the session on demand until the end of January 2021.

Networking

1.

Is “virtual networking” just a buzzword for direct messaging or email?

Absolutely not! The virtual platform will feature direct messaging functionality, but it also has in-built video conferencing that allows you to invite up to 5 other people into a single meeting. Just select your potential business partner/s from the attendee list and invite them to chat.

2.

Will my invitations for meetings just get lost in the platform?

No, any invitations for meetings will go directly to the recipients registered email address with your meeting proposal just as they normally would through Outlook, iCal, Google Calendar, and other email platforms. Once the recipient has responded, you will also receive a notification to your inbox.

3.

Won’t I be at a disadvantage to the other attendees who are there in person?

It is hard to beat in-person interactions and networking; however, the virtual platform also has its advantages.

– You will be able to see all attendees who are attending each session, or have viewed the recording, to help identify potential business partners and to give a common conversation starting point when sending meeting requests
– At a live event, you may be just hoping to bump into another attendee, speaker or exhibitor, with the virtual platform you have the full list of attendees in front of you where you can click on a name and request a meeting or send them a message
– Networking and messaging functionality will be available for longer than just 12-15 October, meaning you can set times with your key targets in advance of or after the event to ensure you get full value from attending the event virtually

4.

If people are walking around the live event in Berlin, how will I be able to network with them through a computer?

This is a key reason as to why the platform will be available from four weeks before the event until the end of January 2021. Our virtual-only attendees will have the chance to organise meetings with in-person attendees at a time that suits both parties, be that before, during or after 12-15 October.

What about the timezone difference? How do I set meetings on my timezone?

The platform shows available meeting times as per your computers timezone. For example, if you are based in London, a meeting you set for 9am from your account will show to a recipient in Berlin as 10am, reducing the human error impact of incorrectly guessing timezone.
It is worth noting that event timings will be running on Berlin Time (CEST) which is UTC +2. The platform will note the timezone abbreviation next to most timings to avoid confusion.
