PFI (Port Finance international) provides a unique platform connecting the Port and Finance industries. Building on over 8 years of successful forums and training courses around the world, all focused on delivering highly targeted knowledge and information on global port and terminal investments and developments, PFI is now excited to announce the 2nd PFI Port Finance Summit that will take place in January 2020. This exclusive Summit provides senior executives from the Port and Finance industries top level networking and the exchange of ideas and business opportunities.

Investment in the transport sector, and in particular in ports and terminals, has been steadily moving from greenfield activity and towards M&A – with global interest growing thanks to robust attributes and a steady flow of new opportunities.

As the marine terminal industry reshuffles, the focus continues to be on creating better and integrated infrastructure. High prices - especially for ports infrastructure assets – mean new and broader sources of investment and funding are becoming available – such as equity financing options, sovereign funds and governments. Add to this a continuing growth of interest in strategically important port assets.

The annual PFI Port Finance Summit will bring together all those involved in ports and terminal acquisition and divestment, with peers, clients and prospects under one roof enabling deal making and business opportunities. As the only international platform designed to bring the port industry’s C-level executives together to facilitate top tier networking, discussion and to explore and forge profitable business opportunities, the aim of the Port Investment Summit will be to forge profitable business opportunities and relationships.

With diverse perspectives from international port investors, project developers, buyers and sellers of port assets, this one-day Summit will provide buyers and sellers with the opportunity to discuss ongoing and upcoming projects – through keynote speeches and panel forums, roundtable sessions, a networking lunch, drinks reception and a Summit Dinner to round off the day’s discussions.

 

KEYNOTES AND FIRE SIDE CHATS
Asset owners will share their ongoing project plans and outlook – outlining their needs and requirements for investment and collaboration. Investors will have the chance to learn more about these projects in exclusive fire side chats, designed to give both sides the opportunity to engage in real business discussion.

 

PANEL DISCUSSIONS AND ROUNDTABLES
These sessions will bring together experts from throughout the value chain, for peer-to-peer discussion on how to better collaborate and to both highlight business critical challenges and identify solutions.

 

NETWORKING
As well the plenary sessions, where business will be high on the agenda, PFI Port Finance Summit 2020 will provide unparalleled networking for those attending – through a Pre-Summit drinks Reception and a hosted Summit Dinner.
