Welcome to ITFA’s 49th Annual International Trade and Forfaiting Conference

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am very pleased to welcome you to this year’s conference website!

The capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, has been chosen to host ITFA’s 49th Annual International Trade and Forfaiting Conference. The much awaited conference will officially open on Wednesday morning, 11th October. The event will end on Friday afternoon.

As is customary, ITFA will bring together delegates from different fields – bankers, financiers, insurers, lawyers, fintechs – for two and a half days of panels, presentations, meetings, and a dedicated conference-long networking facility. Our welcome dinner, entertainment and legendary Gala dinner will enjoyably fill your evenings. A topical and cutting-edge programme is being prepared and will be released in due course.

This year, our Educational Seminar on Trade Finance will take place the day before the conference, on Tuesday 10th October, and will last the whole day. Primarily aimed at junior staff and those new to trade, covering a broad range of trade and supply chain finance topics and taught by ITFA Board members, this is a valuable learning opportunity and is the only programme of its type taught solely by current practitioners.

At this point, we urge you to register for the Conference as soon as possible by clicking on the ‘Registration’ button (at the top of this page) to see the range of discounts offered. Two nights’ accommodation is included in the registration fee, beginning on Wednesday night.

The ITFA proposition is unique – we cannot wait to host you in Abu Dhabi for what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable conference.

Please note that your registration will only be accepted when the registration fee has been received by our conference organisers, ATS Event Solutions AB.

We look forward to welcoming you in Abu Dhabi!

Yours sincerely,
Sean Edwards
