Taking the temperature of the global digital infrastructure marketplace, this is an opportunity to analyse the economic impact of the sector as well as the overarching trends and macro-economic opportunities that can be identified in spending, including M&A, expansion, and management of assets.
Managing DirectorStructure Research
With digital infrastructure CAPEX expected to top US$4 trillion over the next decade, the executive panel will discuss the evolution of the marketplace across data centres, fibre, towers, and edge, and whether business and financing models require a new approach, what's Wall Street's play today, and the role of hyperscalers.

Digital Infrastructure Advisors LtdCEO
Institutional investors, asset managers, private equity firms, sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds, family offices, REITs, and private individuals, the profile of those financing the expansion of the market is shifting and diversifying supporting the argument that the market is maturing. This at a time when debt financing is delivering good grades for operators. The panellists will explore the current private equity and debt finance framework which is pulling mega capital into the sector, the strategies, returns, and emerging risks and opportunities in the context of a shifting global market, and how investors can best protect themselves from exposure from inflation to geo-political adversities.

The digital infrastructure space has in the past years broken record after record in terms of M&A deals. From Tokyo to Los Angeles and everywhere in between be it APAC, Africa, Europe, or Latin America, there is a fierce race to acquire infrastructure assets – and the talent running it. As the clock continues to tick, the window of opportunity is wide open. Experts will debate what recent deals mean for the market as well as what the projections tell us of the near and long future, especially as telcos rethink their deconversion of assets amidst a boom in edge deployments.

A special chat between two industry heavyweights not to be missed.

International Data Centre GroupExecutive Chairman
The climate challenge and sustainability are at the heart of every digital infrastructure project today. Or so they should be. Panellists will discuss if the vast amount of money being thrown at green and blue financing is being used purposefully, what the role of private equity is in the energy transition, how to avoid green capital washing, what markets are leading by example, and if regulatory changes, business strategies and innovative financing structures can deliver 2030 targets.

As digital infrastructure earns the critical infrastructure stamp from nations across the planet, there are inherent issues that can hinder developments and ultimately result in lost deals and revenue. What are the legal hurdles today? How has contracting changed? What are the land use and entitlement regulations? What are the implications of the different data sovereignty legislations around the globe? What do enterprises look for and what's the developer's responsibility? How will digital infrastructure law be framed in the future?
Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLPPartner
By 2023, digital infrastructure will be the underlying platform for all IT and business automation initiatives anywhere and everywhere, according to IDC. Digital infrastructure, be it hyperscale or at the edge, is now the foundation of our economy and the basis upon which future innovations, creations and investments will be generated. In this panel session, experts from some of the world’s leading corporates will discuss what the future holds for digital infrastructure, as well as how the market will help enable new realities like the metaverse, Web 3.0 and more.

Investment stewardship is the way to do business in the 21st century. Engaging with policy makers and standard setters, ensuring the human capital is protected and invested upon, and keeping the environment safe are factors without which investments could struggle in their road to triumph. This roundtable session will argue on how to integrate social and environmental values into investment portfolios, how to factor ESG non-financial elements to identify material risks and growth opportunities, how to manage direct exposure to private equity or real assets, and more.
