AN INVESTMENT CATALYST FOR SOUTHERN AFRICAN INFRASTRUCTURE

PROJECT PREPARATION:
THE KEY TO FAST-TRACKING INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA

IMBIZO ‘21 is Southern Africa’s only event that supports the project-preparation phase of the infrastructure investment life-cycle. This is a key area, that project owners often under-estimate and overlook. It can be a barrier to finalising funding and investments and is
becoming widely recognised as one of the key constraints to infrastructure development in Africa.

The ‘preparedness’ process comprises the entire set of activities to take a project from conceptualisation to actual implementation.

Bringing together over 100 key leaders who are striving to increase finance and support for sustainable infrastructure development in
Southern Africa, IMBIZO ‘21 will accelerate the momentum to achieve infrastructure priorities that will help improve the economic wellbeing of Southern Africa.

IMBIZO ’21 WILL FEATURE

High-level Summit
programme presented by industry experts

B2B networking and
matchmaking pre, during
and post

Connect pre, during and post Summit through the digital platform

Private meeting spaces for targeted networking (live and digital)

FUTURE-PROOF INVESTMENTS:
PRIORITISING PROJECT PREPARATION

Project preparation is a multi-disciplinary phase in the investment life-cycle, requiring an array of diverse skills and expertise across technical, economic, social, environmental and financial aspects.

Before its implementation, a well-prepared infrastructure
project is shaped to ensure the:
• economic and financial feasibility
• balanced allocation of risk between the role-players
(project owner/investor)
• commercial viability
• adequate funding and financing

DEFINE, DRIVE, DESCRIBE, DEBATE,
DELIVER: CONTENT AND PROGRAMME

Top-level speakers from all key industry segments will present
their views using strategic presentations, case studies,
in-depth sessions and interactive panels. The Advisory
Board are constantly searching for speakers who can share
experiences, innovative ideas and visions.
