Following the success of the inaugural virtual event in October 2020, GTR East Africa will return once again in a digital form for 2021, taking place on May 12-13, 2021.

Utilising GTR’s bespoke virtual event platform, this online gathering promises expansive networking and an extensive and comprehensive programme of live and on-demand content, welcoming the leading practitioners in trade, agribusiness, supply chain and commodity finance.

Virtual Online Event (18-20 May 2021)

This flagship event for the receivables finance industry attracts delegates from across the globe, bringing together both market experts and new entrants. It provides an essential update on the latest invoice financing trends, market challenges and innovations.

The receivables finance sector continues to evolve rapidly. Covid-19 has meant a significant shift in market attitudes. Some of these will be permanent; some will disappear over time. Many expect a rapid rise in receivables finance business coming out of the pandemic as government-imposed restrictions are eased. But navigating to that point could be tricky as the financial support provided by governments will expose many SMEs to terminal positions.

RFIx 2021 will take a deep dive into the impact of the pandemic and global geopolitics on market trends and risk. It will explore how practitioners can become fitter, leaner, and better in this new world through innovative product development, technology and new markets, and discover the new challenges around ESG, regulatory and legal issues. Being a virtual event, it provides a chance to network with an even wider circle of industry peers.

Join senior receivables finance executives at the 21st annual RFIx Convention and ensure the right direction for your business.

Virtual Online Event (16-17 June, 2021)

As part of GTR’s hybrid offering, GTR US plans to return as virtual event on June 16-17 and a physical one-day event in October 2021. Following the events of 2020, and the first several months into the new US administration, this event will provide unrivalled networking opportunities and the chance to reflect on developments impacting the world of US trade in the current climate.

Hear from industry leaders and trade experts on the latest developments, challenges and opportunities across the industry, as well as the opportunity to connect with an impressive array of corporates, financiers, policymakers and innovators.

Virtual Online Event (29-30 June, 2021)

As part of its hybrid offering for 2021 – with an in-person event scheduled for October 19 – GTR UK will take place in virtual form on June 29-30, offering unrivalled insights into the latest developments in UK trade and trade finance.

Coming at a crucial time for UK trade, both in terms of the consequences of Covid-19 on global supply chains and the ongoing ramifications of Brexit on the country’s export strategy, the event will also reflect on the key issues across the trade finance sector, from the ongoing ramifications of the collapse of Greensill to wider concerns around the supply chain finance models and questions posed for the insurance market. We’ll also be looking at other industry themes and trends, including the UK’s digital agenda, ESG, trade as an asset class and the latest government support measures to aid future growth.

In addition to this extensive range of live and pre-recorded content, the event will also feature a 3D virtual exhibition, breakout groups, chatrooms and discussion forums, as well as the chance to network with speakers and delegates alike through our interactive platform, encompassing the various aspects of the GTR conference experience in a digital setting.
