A consistent attendee favorite, the Global Annual Meeting – Europe is the premier bank to bank forum in the region, gathering senior transaction bankers, providers and other stakeholders from 100+ organizations worldwide. This year, we’ll take a closer look at what trends will shape the industry in the new decade.

Conference Highlights
  • Innovation Showcase: Last year we focused on four trade platforms. This year, we’ll feature platforms emerging in the cross currency international payments space.
  • Transaction Banking Leaders: A signature session, we’ve once again invited a group of transaction banking global heads for a candid conversation on innovation/disruptors, talent, global trends, etc.
  • 2020 Future Leaders Class: Meet our new class at this year’s event, as we officially launch the 2020 Future Leaders program.
  • Trade and Supply Chain Awards: In cooperation with Global Finance, we are pleased to once again host the annual Global Finance Best in Trade and Supply Chain Finance awards on Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
  • Attendee Testimonials
    “My background is more trade than cash. It is not straightforward to put together an agenda that covers both areas of transaction banking and still make the package relevant to many people. It think BAFT succeeded. I also like the live platform demos, both as topic and formula (i.e. break from sit down sessions in the large hall).”
    “I felt the conference was a great insight into how the wider industry is thinking about the future. It sparked great debate and probed ideas of what the future could look like.”
    “Both an interesting and informative event that was well managed. It had a number of relevant and interesting topics and the pace of the conference was spot on.”
    “Great form of event, easy to meet participants attending the event, interesting conferences dealing with market trends/news/challenges banks are facing/innovations etc.”
