GTR’s Asia Trade & Treasury Week returned to Singapore on September 4-7, 2018, reflecting on a momentous year for global trade and developments in the Asian market. Welcoming a record-breaking total of over 1,100 delegates, the event reaffirmed its status as the largest international gathering for the trade, commodity, fintech and treasury markets.

Benefitting from the use of multiple streams, coverage at the event focused on a range of topics and markets, whilst a variety of formats (breakouts, workshops, debates, formal launches, speed-networking) provided excellent opportunities for engagement and knowledge sharing with a number of exciting new market entrants.

  • Be accurate and kept up to date
  • Not be held for any longer than necessary
  • Processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects
