SMi returns to Ireland with the Infrastructure Finance Forum taking place in Dublin on 4th – 5th December 2013.
Over the last couple of years Ireland has seen several PPP projects shelved due to cutbacks related to changes in the economy and the recession. With new investment deals and sources of finance from the European Investment Bank, the PPP market within Ireland is set to improve.
The Infrastructure Finance Forum Ireland will give delegates an overview of the most recent developments in PPP, exploring alternative sources of finance for infrastructure finance such as the use of pension funds and institutional financing. Case studies on infrastructure projects like the grangegorman PPP project will provide insight in to how recent investments are progressing and the bidding process in obtaining such funding. Key focuses also include pipelined PPP projects, contracts and contractors, risk management, the future outlook for infrastructure finance in Ireland, best practice methods and different perspectives on financing projects i.e. bankers, legal and contractors perspectives.
This conference creates the perfect platform for both private and public sectors to discuss current issues and recent developments as well as creating great networking opportunities, meanwhile helping infrastructure finance continue to move forward within Ireland.
