Turkey Trade & Export Finance Conference 2018

10% early booking discount available when booking online
by February 23 with code: EBD10

According to the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TİM), Turkey’s exports rose to a 6-year high at $11.5 billion in July 2017 making it a key exporter of automobile, agriculture and mining commodities in the region and one of the fastest growing economies among OECD members in the next few years.

For over a decade, GTR’s Turkey Trade & Export Finance Conference has provided Turkish corporates, financiers and investors with a key annual platform at which to make valuable business contacts and learn from the leading figures in international trade and investment. With a recent referendum increasing the executive power of Turkey’s President, political risk is likely to feature high on the agenda, as well as other geopolitical developments and emerging trade dynamics in global markets.


“This event has firmly consolidated its position as the trade finance event of the year in Istanbul.”
K Kemahli, Nurol Holding

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


Discussions on current import-export scenarios, structured trade & export finance, infrastructure hotspots and treasury will also take place over the course of the day. If you have trade dealings with Turkey, this is an essential event for expanding your contact base, knowledge and trading position.
