“The Handback Summit is the first event dedicated solely to managing the expiry of PPP projects. With the huge numbers of projects nearing handback and with many more gearing up for what the process means for their scheme, this is your opportunity to position yourselves as THE expiry experts.”

Sponsorship opportunities include leading panels, steering fireside chats, presenting case studies or leading one of our two workshops. 

We work closely with our partners to shape the sessions and speakers to best highlight their expertise.
