Course - GTR Asia 2019
GTR Asia 2019 (formerly known as Asia Trade & Treasury Week) will return to Singapore September 3-4, 2019. Recognised as the world’s
largest international gathering for the trade, commodity, fintech and treasury community, GTR’s annual event in Singapore last year welcomed a record-breaking
total of over 1,100 industry participants from local and international banks to multinational corporations and SMEs, independent financiers, commodity
brokers and traders, insurers and risk managers, lawyers, consultants, ECAs and multilaterals and more!
2019’s event is set to be even bigger and better! Participants will have the chance to hear over 100 of the world’s leading trade, treasury and fintech experts reflecting on developments in the Asian market and more globally, whilst also having the chance to network and discuss trade priorities with over 500 different companies.
"Asia continues to be at the forefront of global trade, a situation that seems unlikely to change bearing in mind the current geopolitical climate and potential shifts in regional and global supply chains," says Rupert Sayer, Founder & CEO of GTR Asia. "The region is also very much at the heart of the various innovation and digitalisation drives underway in the industry, due in no small part to the proactive approach of regulators and trade promotion bodies in pursuing their digital agenda. With such a vibrant and exciting market environment, it is no wonder GTR Asia 2019 continues to thrive and attract well over 1,000 delegates each year for unparallel networking and key market insight."
Delegates will also benefit from the use of multiple streams with agenda focused on a range of topics and markets, whilst a variety of formats (breakouts, workshops, debates, formal launches, speed-networking) will provide excellent opportunities for engagement and knowledge sharing.
With a keen focus on networking, GTR Asia will once again enjoying unrivalled support from local government organisations and public bodies, including
the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Enterprise Singapore, as well as the world’s leading financial institutions, attendees will receive critical
market insight, build business relationships and gain the inside track on the latest financing trends and techniques. Don’t miss your chance to join
leading corporates and trade specialists for a day of discussion, debate and networking. For a complimentary corporate pass (available to those who
