FIDIC: Global Infrastructure Conference
Join infrastructure professionals at potentially the industry’s biggest two-day international online conference event to hear from global experts on topics around engineering infrastructure, governance and leadership in a post-pandemic world.
FIDIC’s Global Infrastructure Conference takes place online again this year on Friday 10 and Monday 13 September. The conference, Investing in future infrastructure - governance and leadership in a post-pandemic world, will look at the global need for high-quality and sustainable infrastructure in the context of a world coming out of the Covid crisis.
The event will consider the challenges faced by both the public and private sectors in developing successful projects and maintaining high-performing infrastructure assets in a rapidly changing world of digitisation, energy transition, climate change, geo-politics and growing societal needs. The conference will hear from leading keynote speakers who will address the planning, funding and delivery of sustainable infrastructure as well as examining the leadership – business, industry and political – needed to make it happen.
The Covid pandemic has revealed that more than ever before, high-quality and sustainable infrastructure is needed globally. To create a better future for citizens globally, international infrastructure and societies benefit from good governance in planning and funding the successful delivery of infrastructure and also good leadership in developing a culture of integrity, sustainability and inclusion.
Delivering a sustainable world to future generations requires continuous engagement by the engineering community and its stakeholders to connect regions, deliver gateway hubs, address energy independence and facilitate sustainable growth of cities and economic development. Best practices in governance and leadership provide effective strategies and systems that drive compliance, quality and long-term return on investment. Topics at the FIDIC International Infrastructure Conference will include best practice in funding, planning, value design, successful delivery of mega-projects and the revitalisation of assets to improve the lives of global citizens.
