GTR’s annual conference brought India’s trade community together for discussion, debate and networking opportunities, as it has done for well over a decade. GTR India returned for its 15th year, at the Taj Lands End, Mumbai on February 4, 2019.

As the only event of its kind for the Indian market, the multiformat conference allowed both domestic and international delegates to meet face-to-face to discuss their priorities and hear directly from expert speakers and industry influencers on topics ranging from fintech evolution, corporate treasury priorities and considerations, to geo-political influencers and supply chain finance development.

This year, 53% of attendees were corporates & traders and 19% were bankers & financiers representing over 154 different companies from around the world. 30% of all attendees held a senior to a c-level position. To see the full event break down click here.
