Infrastructure Partnerships Australia Conference 2020

24 September 2020

Macquarie Capital is once again proud to be the exclusive gold sponsor of this year's Infrastructure Partnerships Australia's (IPA) Partnerships conference, Australia's leading infrastructure conference. Partnerships brings together the most senior public and private sector leaders across the Australian infrastructure market.

The theme of this year's conference was 'The Reset', and throughout the day we heard from a number of thought-provoking speakers including Macquarie Group CEO Shemara Wikramanayake who sat down with Infrastructure Partnerships Australia's CEO Adrian Dwyer to discuss what major trends and drivers in infrastructure have remained constant and what has changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion also explores how the sector can use COVID-19 to reset the way we think and operate, embed positive changes, and examine the role private capital can play in supporting the economic recovery.
