Driving energy transition strategies

Develop your energy transition strategy and analyse the “biggest investment opportunity of the century” in Asian renewables at the 2nd annual Renewable Energy Forum on 12 November as part of the Hong Kong Summit.

In a new and improved venue, connect with more than 200 global infrastructure professionals, including Asia’s largest LPs, to dissect the Asian renewables landscape and discover where double-figure returns can still be found.

With renewables booming across the globe, and particularly in Asia, there has never been a better time to connect with the leading players to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunities available across the sector.

As the leading information source for infrastructure investment professionals, the network and seniority of decision-makers across both LPs and GPs who attend Infrastructure Investor conferences is unparalleled.

Co-located with the Hong Kong Summit, the elite of Asian and global infrastructure will be in attendance. This is your opportunity to showcase your unique value to the Asian LPs searching for infrastructure investments worldwide.

3 distinct Forums to enhance your investment and fundraising strategies

Attend the full Hong Kong Summit to grow your business

Drive your energy transition investment strategy at this second annual forum dedicated to the “biggest investment opportunity of the century”.

Established as the premier infrastructure investment conference in the region, you must be in attendance if you are interested in Asian infrastructure or LP capital.

Discover why LPs in the region are increasingly allocating their capital to infrastructure debt strategies and demonstrate your advantage over the competition to secure your share.
