Co-hosted and held in partnership with both the STSA and PwC, and reflecting on Switzerland’s role as one of the world’s leading hubs for commodities, from oil and gas to metals and agribusiness products, the conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the global trading and financing landscape.
"We're witnessing an exciting time in the world of commodities, with disruptive new technologies, regulatory challenges and greater focus on sustainability giving traders and financiers much to consider," says Peter Gubbins, Founder & CEO of GTR. "Having held our first GTR Commodities event in Geneva last year – we were previously based in Lugano – we were delighted at the strong attendance, reflecting the many exciting developments and lucrative opportunities to be found in the market."
"It is our view that this joint venture with the STSA, embracing leading commodity stakeholders from their own previously held Trading Forum, will prove a formidable partnership in delivering the premier event for the industry, further reinforcing Geneva and Switzerland's role at the centre of global commodities. We would also like to thank our partners at PricewaterhouseCoopers for their support in helping to build this alliance."
With an extensive mix of industry experts and practitioners set to attend, including corporates and traders, banks, funds and alternative financiers, insurers and brokers, law firms and technology experts, academia and shipping experts, the event will provide an unrivalled forum for networking and discussion.
