Infra-Day Americas, 2018
The Americas Platform will be hosting its second annual Infra-Day Americas on May 23, 2018 in its New York Conference Center. The inaugural event in 2017 was very well received by investors, with over 100 attendees. Topics covered in 2017 included Benchmarking Infrastructure Investments with a presentation from Frederic-Blac-Brude of EDHEC, and a presentation of the Green Bonds Landscape from Orith Azoulay of SRI, Natixis. Our successful panel discussions covering Financing Renewable Energy, Institutional Funding of Infrastructure, and Financing Telecom included Invenergy, SunPower, Barings, BlackRock, Hastings, IFM, CDPQ, Seaborn, EdgeConnex, and Digital Bridge.
This year, the agenda will include a teach-in on Mexico and the Energy Reform with Jean-Philippe Adam and White & Case, continued discussion around Telecom, views on Offshore Wind in the Americas, an Investor Panel, and Joseph LaVorgna with an overview of the macro-economy in the U.S. Panelists will include Antin Infrastructure Partners, EdgeConnex, Digital Bridge, Northland Power, K2, BlackRock, Global Infrastructure Partners, CDPQ, Vantage Infrastructure, and Norton Rose Fulbright. Benjamin Sirgue will open the event, and Emmanuel Gillet-Lagarde will close the day, which will be followed by a networking reception.
We look forward to hosting all the speakers and attendees in another successful event.
