After that, a roundtable-style workshop and networking will take place. The event concludes with a final panel looking at which sectors, clients or projects created opportunities for themselves in 2021 and what practitioners should expect to see in post-pandemic, including the sustainable growth in M&A activities and what equity players, financial sponsors, bankers and their clients are hoping to achieve.
