Infrastructure Investor Global Summit to take place in October

That these are challenging times is plain for all to see. “Business as usual” is taking a new shape, and, like you perhaps, we’re working out what that looks like.

The well-being of our many thousands of customers, partners and our own personnel is foremost, which is why we are rescheduling the Infrastructure Investor Global Summit 2020 from its current dates to 12-15 October, in Berlin.

In the meantime, we will continue to work to provide valuable insights on the challenges and opportunities the industry faces and we will be communicating regularly with the Infrastructure Investor community to provide details of the Global Summit in October.

Register your interest to be notified of the latest event updates and for further queries, please contact customerservices@peimedia.com.
