In your timezone (EST): Tue Jun 29 12:00pm - Wed Jun 30 12:00pm
Location Virtual
Region EMEA

Following a momentous 2020, which saw both the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic expose the fault lines in UK supply chains and preparations finalised for the country’s post Brexit global trade relationships, both events will continue to shine light on the crucial issues impacting on the trade and export finance market, from challenges faced by exporters to the support measures put in place by government, the role of technology and innovation to the need to cultivate a more inclusive and sustainable environment for conducting business.

In addition to an extensive programme of expert speakers, the virtual event will encompass all the key aspects of a live GTR conference experience in a digital format, while the in-person event will include a full exhibition and that much missed opportunity for participants to network and connect with industry leaders, peers and potential clients. We look forward to returning!
