Turkey Trade & Export Finance Conference 2017

Sorry, this event has now taken place and is no longer bookable.


Thank you to all who attended the Turkey Trade & Export Finance Conference 2017!

Welcoming over 270 Turkish companies involved in international trade and investment, no wonder this event has become the country’s primary trade and export finance gathering.

Event photos are available on Facebook and Google!


Welcoming 273 delegates, the Turkey Trade & Export Finance Conference 2017 brought all parties involved in Turkish trade together for a focused one-day gathering in Istanbul – a key city for global trade, and a vital bridge between Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

For Turkish companies involved in international trade and investment, this annual event has quickly become the primary industry gathering at which to meet and discuss their exporting and financing requirements with like-minded organisations, as well as with those institutions tasked with financing them.

 

“A unique, well-organised event for the Turkish trade finance market.”
S Demiray, Turkiye is Bankaski

“A great opportunity to hear about the latest developments for Turkish trade finance and for our region.”
O Topal, Keymen

“The regular meeting place for finance people: well-organised and comprehensive as usual.”
K Sirdar, Borçelik

“The strong audience engagement reflected the well-chosen, clearly defined topics discussed by panels of genuine experts.”
G Slawther, Corporate Advisory Resources

“I was extremely impressed by the size of the attendance. This event has firmly consolidated its position as the trade finance event of the year in Istanbul. The choice of presentation subjects were topical and the panels were interesting. The breaks provided plenty of opportunities to network with executives from banks, other corporates as well as media.”
K Kemahli, Nurol Holding

 

Emre Alkin, a leading global economist with ties to Istanbul Kemerburgaz Üniversitesi, TIM, Plastkart, UEFA and Dunya Gazetesi, began with a keynote address assessing today’s primary business threats and opportunities, considering growth prospects for the country’s economy. Further discussions throughout the day included updates on Turkey’s EU accession negotiations, emerging market trade flows & sector profiles, treasury & working capital, structured export & ECA financing, infrastructure investment hotspots and more.

We look forward to returning to Istanbul in 2018 to continue this ever-evolving discussion!
