Local Government Finance Conference

About the Event.

The Local Government Finance Conference - LG Finance - is the sector’s largest, oldest and most influential event on the local government finance calendar, and is back with the first face to face conference since the beginning of COVID. 

Held over three days, this conference will bring the sector's finance professionals to engage with panel discussions, presentations and key note speakers exploring topics impacting the finance function at council. 

The conference also provides an important opportunity to network with peers and industry stakeholders, and those who have previously been involved can attest to the level of value that each delegate walks away with because LG Finance is more than a conference, it’s an experience.

The Global Risk Report

The 16th edition of the Global Risks Report, published by the World Economic Forum with support from Marsh McLennan, highlights the disruptive implications of major risks, including the COVID-19 pandemic, that may reshape our world over the next decade. The report draws on the survey results from nearly 700 experts and decision-makers globally who were asked about their concerns for the next decade, how global risks interact, and where opportunities exist to collectively act to mitigate these threats.
