InfraNews is pleased to announce that this year's European Infrastructure Finance Summit will be held at the Hotel Wellington in Madrid on 4-5 October:

InfraNews’ Ninth European Infrastructure Finance Summit will bring together the providers of capital with European government leaders and procurers to address the problem of funding and find solutions. Held in one of continental Europe’s leading business cities, this two-day conference will focus on how Europe's infrastructure industry is re-inventing itself in the face of sweeping public spending cuts, economic stagnation, recovering financial markets and the polarisation of a two speed Europe.
