ACT Middle East Treasury Summit 2018

16 October - 17 October 2018
Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai


As a corporate treasury community, the previous 10 years have been incredibly beneficial and challenging. Since the Association of Corporate Treasurers launched its network for treasury, finance and risk professionals in 2008, we’ve seen the Middle East weather the global financial crisis, navigate far-reaching regulatory change and adopt new innovation at a blistering pace.

A 10-year anniversary is always special. This year’s ACT Middle East Treasury Summit, located at a new venue, the Madinat Jumeirah, will ensure treasurers are at the centre of the conversation focused on treasury’s development for the next 10 years. Make sure you are part of this debate and save the date today.
