Conference programme

The Fairmont Singapore Hotel will serve as the official venue for our FIDIC 2023 Global Infrastructure Conference. Fairmont’s main ballroom will host the main conference events, with the welcome evening reception taking place on Sunday 10 September and the main conference from 11-12 September, including the sponsor exhibition and networking breaks.

The conference theme, Infrastructure – there’s no time to lose: Sustainable global (and local) strategies to build a better world, will stress the urgency of the need to invest in infrastructure in a sustainable way at a local and national level that brings stakeholders together around a common aim of improving the global environment that we all depend on.

The conference will include six forum discussion tables which will run parallel with the conference agenda and these will cover key areas of interest for attendees. A Finance Forum will discuss key and emerging issues facing CFOs and others working in the financial field.

These forums will be open to all conference registrants closer to the conference. Please note that spaces are limited, and these will be reserved on a first come first served basis. 

A certificate of attendance will be provided to each conference (11-12 September 2023) participant which may be used for CPD verification in your local region.
