Global Trade Review is delighted to announce its exciting new plans for GTR Africa 2020 Virtual, which will take place on October 20-23. Drawing on the high-level expertise, comprehensive market coverage and unrivalled industry connections of GTR’s Africa-focused gatherings in Cape Town, Victoria Falls and London, this exciting new initiative will combine a mixture of live-streamed and pre-recorded content and targeted networking through GTR’s dynamic virtual event platform.
Spread over 4 days and combining 3 distinct events into the one extended virtual offering to capture a wider audience, this new format provides the opportunity for more detailed focus on key markets, innovation, trade and commodity flows, infrastructure and the wider implications of global disruption. GTR Africa Virtual in collaboration with Orbitt, will also feature our inaugural Digital Deal Room, a bespoke origination and investment matching platform populated with unique opportunities for investors.
Fully supported and endorsed by Africa’s leading financial institutions, DFIs, multilaterals and various governments, participants will benefit from unrivalled opportunities to connect with a wider audience and do business in ‘the new normal’, sharing insights and expertise, and providing clarity at a time of great uncertainty.
As an introduction, have a look at this video for a quick tour of the digital platform.
GTR Africa 2020 Virtual will encompass the key aspects of the live conference experience in a digital format, retaining our core focus on networking, collaboration and knowledge sharing, with our unrivalled delegate mix including corporates, traders, banks, insurers, lawyers, technology companies, non-bank financiers, government agencies and investors.
In 2019, GTR Africa took place in Cape Town, South Africa. Two of the largest sectors in attendance were corporates & traders (30%) and bankers & financiers (21%). Over 160 different companies were represented and 83% of all attendees held a senior to a c-level position.
An important annual gathering of key players in Africa. The trade and export finance content and networking opportunities make this a worthwhile conference to attend.
Excellent platform for networking with stakeholder in the trade space from all over the world!
This conference is absolutely essential for business leaders around the globe.
If you want to do business in Africa, you must be at this event!
Really enjoyed the conference and found the topics discussed to be very relevant and helpful. I will definitely make use of what I have learned.
The main springboard for attracting investors, funding providers and more importantly project sponsors, this event is unique in its ability to bring stakeholders together in one large forum. Marketing the benefits of inward investment opportunities is key in today’s competitive environment – this is what GTR Africa does so well, year in, year out.
Very current discussions in the context of world events and networking make this an excellent conference.
The conference has interesting topics discussed and a very good variety of financiers participating. This event is a great place for networking and understanding the business environment.
