• The Critical Infrastructure Summit is a two-day conference and exhibition that brings together leading experts across the infrastructure and utility sectors to discuss the most pressing issues in infrastructure construction, asset management and disaster resilience.

Critical Infrastructure comprises three co-located events under the one roof:

  1. Critical Infrastructure: Asset Management
  2. Critical Infrastructure: Disaster Management
  3. Critical Infrastructure: Construct

For the price of just one registration, delegates will have access to all three events over the two days. Send different teams to each of the events, or pick and choose which sessions to go to across them all.

The event has been created by the team behind Infrastructure, Energy and Utility magazines.

Critical Infrastructure: Asset Management is the new iteration of the premier industry event Asset Management for Critical Infrastructure, which has been running for four years. Delegates can expect the same high quality speakers and program as previous years, with the added bonus of the other two co-located events.

This will also be the second time running Critical Infrastructure: Disaster Management as the inaugural conference was held in November 2019.

Critical Infrastructure: Construct is a brand new event bringing together the industry leaders, leading companies and hot topics seen in Infrastructure magazine.

The expert speaker line-up across all three events features senior leaders from infrastructure asset owners, utilities, government, industry associations, and consultancies.

The Critical Infrastructure Summit is the place to be for the industry to share each other’s successes and learn from their mistakes. The event provides practical solutions to improve the way critical assets are constructed, managed and protected and will highlight where the future infrastructure opportunities lie.
