Many events going on in the same place. The GLA is set up so that proximity of buildings is efficient; one event will be held in a specific location and the hotels or other seminars will be close by. Many benefactors are able to meet and discuss new projects, private conversations, and more general views of organizations. Opportunities to talk to investors are in abundance. Banks, multilaterals, and portfolio managers were there to help facilitate the flow of funds into infrastructure projects. Felipe felt this was an invaluable opportunity to get funding and exchange ideas for projects in infrastructure.
