Agenda

Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
27-28 September 2022
Take a look at the working two-day agenda below and stay tuned for exciting updates and speaker announcements. Subject to final confirmation.

With the success of Expo in Dubai, and the Qatari World Cup taking place later in 2022, the Middle East is firmly in the spotlight; coupled with its geopolitical balancing act between regional and global players, it’s an exciting and unique time for the region and many of its key players. The question now for treasurers is how to operate in this changing regional and global environment, that is being transformed by technology and a drive towards sustainability. These factors are also driving a changing workforce, and require a new skill set for the treasurer to effectively support their wider business. This year's agenda will focus on best practice and excellence across treasury and financial risk management, whether that be in FX, funding, cash management and beyond.
