ANZ, BNP Paribas, Citi, Crédit Agricole, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, ING, SACE, Santander, SMBC, Société Générale and Standard Chartered are partner-sponsors of TXF Venice, and a selection of other high-profile international financial institutions, insurers and law firms are also backing the event.
Central to the agenda is how key players can collaborate to finance more projects in growth markets including the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Chinese One Belt One Road initiative. Discussions dedicated to industry - power, renewables, oil & gas, infrastructure, cruise shipping and aviation - will run in parallel to technical financing and regulation sessions.
Growing on the success of TXF Rome 2016, the conference is unique in its provision of innovative workshops, idea-labs and interactive group sessions. Attendees are encouraged to tailor their experience and focus on the issues that matter to them.
Plus, this year, TXF is embracing the glamour of the silver screen for an evening of networking. On June 7 guests are invited to the TXF Industry Dinner, including a short awards ceremony for the export finance deals of the year. Winners were nominated by users of tagmydeals, TXF's user-generated database, and can be found on the tagmydeals website.
The dinner will be held in association with TXF's charity partner AbleChildAfrica, an organisation working to improve the lives of disabled children in Africa. A charity representative will be speaking at the event. In addition, a cocktail reception will be hosted in partnership with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.
The event follows hot on the heels of TXF Amsterdam 2017, the company's annual marquee conference for the trade, treasury and commodity finance industries, which welcomed 500 global market leaders.
