Event Overview

"Well organised, rich in content and great networking opportunities" 

Safia Mouline, Senior Investment Officer, Ithmar Capital


Both the infrastructure and energy markets continue to develop and offer new opportunities for investors across the world. Despite a drop in the volume of transactions made globally in the past year, the market is now well poised to respond positively with an appetite to seize upon new investment prospects.

Since the signing of the Paris Agreement, there has been a clear drive to improve renewable energy capabilities globally. New technology continues to evolve and present fresh opportunities for investment, not only down the line, but in the immediate future. The political climate is also one of the most unpredictable seen in decades, which has raised numerous questions as to how this will impact investment. However, there continues to be a definite increase in innovative financing, which is presenting exciting investment developments across the market.

Bringing together the key market leaders, WIES 2017, offers the best platform to discuss these trends, meet potential business partners and facilitate the execution of deals.
