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."
