Sponsor & Exhibit

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, the Australian Financial Review's National Infrastructure Summit returns, bigger and better, in 2016. This year, the focus is on driving growth through smarter, more efficient cities - and we are lining up the best of the best from Australia and abroad to work through the various planning, funding and delivery issues that are holding our cities back. The Summit will be held on the 15-16 June at the Four Seasons, Sydney.

We expect an audience of around 300 of Australia's top investors, planners, contractors, advisers and policy-makers at what is the nation's premier infrastructure event.
