GTR Nordics 2022 touches down in Stockholm on November 16th, with record breaking participation expected at the region’s leading gathering of trade, supply chain and export financing experts following an emphatic return to in-person networking at GTR Nordics 2021.

With the trade sector facing multiple headwinds ranging supply chain disruption, inflationary pressure, rising interest rates, FX volatility and heightened political risk, the wider ecosystem must also galvanise to meet strategic goals relating to digitisation, decarbonisation and sustainable development.

GTR Nordics 2022 will once again provide a unique forum to drive the open debate and new partnerships needed to navigate today’s risks and maximise opportunities, while transitioning towards a more efficient, sustainable future for global trade. Book your place now to gain expert-led insight and unrivalled networking with the region’s leading corporates, lenders, ECAs and digital innovators.
