AFR National Infrastructure Summit

Australia has witnessed an unprecedented level of infrastructure spend in recent years. With major projects unveiled in systematic regularity and a pipeline touting $58 billion, how are these investments really fairing?

Why can’t we get big infrastructure right? How do we plan against congestion? Where are investors putting their money?

The Australian Financial Review, in association with Deloitte, is proud to announce the fifth annual National Infrastructure Summit, to be held on 12-13 June at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

The National Infrastructure Summit has firmly established itself as Australia’s premier forum to discuss and announce all major projects driving growth for smarter, more efficient cities.

The 2019 Summit will provide political debate, exclusive industry perspectives and a comprehensive overview of the project pipeline creating once again, an unmissable program.
