Overview

Marcus Evans takes pride in organizing the 2nd African Infrastructure Projects large scale event scheduled for 18th – 20th September, 2013, in Johannesburg, South Africa. This conference will highlight the critical issues in African Infrastructure Projects, explore how this sector can grow in the context of an economic crisis and how to deliver more with less, thereby taking advantage of the unprecedented opportunities in this sector.

It will offer insights on how the private and the public sectors can exchange knowledge, catalyse public-private alliances and concentrate efforts of regional strategic leaders, thereby assisting them to reach necessary targets. While the concept of urban development seems to be a simple solution to growing transport demands, the operation execution remains complicated in interoperable networks due to the unclear policy framework.

Attend this event to meet our line-up of experienced speakers and to network with international experts from the industry.

This event is proudly supported by the Johannesburg Tourism.

All CIOB members who attend can add this event to their CPD hours.
