TXF Amsterdam 2017

May 10 - May 11, 2017
De La Mar Theater, Netherlands

After three knockout years, TXF is returning to Amsterdam for a fourth show, and it’s going to be better than ever!

The TXF Amsterdam marquee conference will incorporate two great events running in parallel - Commodity Finance and Trade & Treasury. Although each event will take place in separate areas of the venue, there will be one shared networking space for both commodity finance and trade & treasury professionals - maximising networking opportunities.

What's more, your ticket to TXF Amsterdam conference will allow you access to both events, meaning you can switch between the two and attend whichever session takes your fancy! This will allow you to tailor you perfect delegate experience.

Join your peers for an evening of food, entertainment and networking ... all on us

Where:             Beaurs van Berlage, Graanbeurszaal, Damrak 243, Amsterdam

When:              Evening, 10th May

 

 

As a guest of TXF Amsterdam 2017, you are cordially invited to attend our famous industry dinner. If the well-laden agenda isn't enough, we've included the gala get-together with your ticket. It’s fun, informal and a great way to get to know your industry partners outside of the conference room.

Arrive in style

Once the first day of conference sessions is over, you’ll board our cocktail reception boat ride at the DeLaMar Theater. Glide through the canals of Amsterdam with a glass of wine (or beer!) and unwind with your peers.

Revel in the heart of the industry

Disembark and settle in for an evening sit-down dinner in the centre of Amsterdam. Formerly a twentieth century commodity trading house, the Beaurs van Berlage represents the business hub of this historic and lively city.

Celebrate the successes of 2016

The dinner also includes a short awards ceremony for the TXF Perfect 10 Deals of the Year Awards. It is the perfect opportunity to recognise the achievements of the industry over the past 12 months, all in the company of your clients and peers.

After three knockout years, the TXF Commodity Circus is returning to Amsterdam for a fourth show, and it’s going to be better than ever.

2016 threw surprise after surprise at the market – so what can we expect for 2017? Will the recent pickup in oil, metal ores and coal continue? Will interest rates continue to rise? How should we interpret the wave of high-profile departures from commodity banks? Pricing volatility in hard commodities and unpredictable climate events affecting softs both foster an environment of uncertainty. Not to mention the political upheavals across the globe…So the question on everybody’s lips is: in volatile times, how can you stay ahead of the game?

 

TXF Amsterdam will cover all the key topics, including:

 Markets and segments still showing growth
 Analysis of the whole financing spectrum: what’s available, for whom, and at what price?
 Who’s faring well and who’s struggling in the current environment?
 Tools for increasing efficiency across the supply chain – both physical and financial
 New technologies, from monitoring shipments, to combatting fraud, to reducing admin burdens


And for the networking?

We know this represents another important part of your event experience, and with all the main commodity finance banks, funds, trading houses, producers and processors from across the globe, we’ll also be bringing you excellent networking in a relaxed environment. From pre-conference drinks and activities to smaller break-out sessions that really get you talking, TXF Amsterdam has it all!


The Industry Dinner and Awards Ceremony

For the past two year's we've enjoyed every second of putting on this fabulous dinner for the natural resources and commodity finance industry. Well of course, it's back again for 2017!  Included in the price of your ticket, once the first day of conference sessions is over, you'll join your fellows for the cocktail reception and informal sit-down dinner. Take a seat, sit back and enjoy an evening of fun, food, wine (or beer!) and entertainment.

The Dinner also includes a short Awards ceremony for the TXF Perfect 10 Deals of the Year Awards, as well as the Best in Class. Share your industries' successes with your clients and peers. It's an evening not to be missed!


Now for something completely different...

With the increased focus on supply chain and working capital efficiency, we’re also adding a dedicated stream to trade finance and cash management. As part of your attendance, you are welcome to join these sessions should you wish to, or, you can stick with the traditional commodity finance sessions. The event will also include a shared networking space with the Trade & Treasury stream attendees, so, there's even more opportunity to widen your business circle and meet with more clients than ever before!

We’ve done Munich, Frankfurt and London. Now, TXF: Trade and Treasury is coming to Amsterdam for a knockout show.

2016 threw surprise after surprise at the market – so what can we expect for 2017? Will the industry finally embrace digital tracking tools and electronic documents? Will interest rates continue to rise? Not to mention the political upheavals across the globe…So the question on everybody’s lips is: in volatile times, how can you stay ahead of the game?

As well as macroeconomic topics, TXF Amsterdam will bring you two dedicated streams:

Trade and Supply Chain Finance

 How do the regulators view trade finance?
 Is the industry ready for e-documents?
 Should supply chain finance programmes be subject to greater scrutiny from ratings agencies?
 Tips for bringing financial and physical supply chains closer together

Treasury and cash management

 Focus on risk management, working capital optimisation and new TMS
 Are corporates making the most of cashpooling?
 Guide to going to the capital marketsBest practice in combatting cyber-fraud
 Best practice in combatting cyber-fraud


And for the networking?

We know this represents another important part of your event experience, that's why we'll be sure to engage as many corporates, treasurers, providers, insurers, and financiers as possible to attend. From pre-conference drinks and activities to smaller break-out sessions that really get you talking, TXF Amsterdam has it all! What's more, our larger, shared networking space with the commodity finance stream will give you increased opportunity to widen your network of connections and get introductions to those you want to meet most. 


The Industry Dinner and Awards Ceremony

As part of your ticket, you'll be joining your peers, as well as those from the commodity finance stream, for our fun and informal Industry Dinner! Once the first day of conference sessions is over, you'll join your fellows for the cocktail reception and informal sit-down dinner. Take a seat, sit back and enjoy an evening of fun, food, wine (or beer!) and entertainment.

Share your industries' successes with your clients and peers. It's an evening not to be missed!


And now for something completely different…
Take a quick look at the topics covered by our commodity finance event, also taking place at the DeLaMar on the 10th-11th May. Your ticket automatically grants you access to both events, so why not mix it up a bit?

Traders’ priorities: Are we operating a two-tier trading system?   |   Reimagining commodity trade roles: Who’s doing what?   |   Is the commodity industry sufficiently transparent?   |   Making use of MFIs and DFIs   |   Are local banks on the way up?   |   Taking risks: alternative financiers   |   Relaying the foundations: A creative guide to restructuring   |   Expert-led region- and sector-specific roundtables   |   What if a top-tier trader failed?   |   Comparing regulatory approaches: How do banks deal with KYC and capital requirements?   |   Industry duel: De-risking does more bad than good for the industry   |   Is CPRI a bright spot in a challenging environment?

Traders’ priorities: Are we operating a two-tier trading system?

The sustained low-pricing environment has seen global traders fare well, with smaller trading houses feeling the pinch. How
sustainable is this two-tier system, and how does it affect traders’ financing priorities for 2017?
This keynote panel looks at:
• Financing strategies for traders and the differences between global and local players
• The sustainability of the current trading ecosystem

Mary Dresselhuys Hall

Research Panel: A new equilibrium

Commodity prices have been slowly but steadily creeping upwards; Opec has finally agreed to cut production; and supply
seems to finally be coming back in line with demand. Have we reached a new equilibrium? What does 2017 have in store for the
commodities markets?

A staple of TXF events, this session is a fun and interactive way to look at pricing. We present a panel of industry experts with a

2. How they would price the deal

3. Whether they would distribute the deal

Geopolitical risk: Around the world in 30 minutes

Our panel of experts will give you a region-by-region overview of geopolitical risk, covering MENA, Sub Saharan Africa, Latin
America, Asia and CEE/CIS. 2016 has been almost unprecedented in terms of political risk, from heightened security threats across Europe to conflict in the Middle East. As we move into 2017 alerts are still high. In what’s been termed a “Geopolitical Recession,” the USA seems to be all but renouncing its position as the linchpin of the global economy and the European Union in the midst of an existential crisis. The flipside of the populism coin is hitting the Middle East and Southern Africa, where increased access to online and social media threatens the stability of opaque governance regimes. So, what’s the outlook and how can you prepare yourselves to withstand it?

Mary Dresselhuys Hall

Building responsible supply chains

As well as growing consumer pressure for a more ethical supply chain, the business case for sustainable supply chains has never
been stronger. How can all parties in a supply chain – from corporates and financiers to regulatory and certification bodies – better
collaborate to strengthen transparency and sustainability standards?

Taking risks: alternative financiers

This session looks at the deals that banks can’t do – whether the ticket size is too small, the market too risky, the regulatory stakes too
high, or the client unknown – and who’s filling that gap. Who’s out there – from funds, to institutional investors – and what are they doing?
