2017 saw GTR Americas’ previous events merge into one broader all-encompassing US Trade & Working Capital Conference, which took place in its new base of Chicago on June 7.

Over 170 delegates attended the event, including fintech thought-leaders, treasurers, supply chain experts and corporate decision-makers, for a day of discussion covering a broad range of issues surrounding the US trade and working capital space.

An ideal environment for corporate treasurers, trade financiers and business heads to meet and assess the latest financing techniques, innovations and disruptors, as well as best practices for optimising physical and financial supply chains, GTR’s US Trade & Working Capital Conference will return to Chicago in 2018!
