ECA/DFI Finance in 2014

ECA/DFI Finance in 2014

Jun 3 - Jun 4, 2014
Pavillon Cambon Capucines, 46, rue Cambon, Paris

The international festival for the ECA Finance market

Thank you to everyone who attended our ECA/DFI Finance in 2014 event. Here is what some of our participants had to say about it:

  • Elena Beketova

    Elena Beketova Head Of Documentary Operations and Export Finance, Lukoil

    Perfect time, perfect place, perfect people. The Borrowers' Breakfast is a rare opportunity for borrowers to share precious secrets and tips.

  • Simon Jones

    Simon Jones Head of Structured Export Finance, Asia Pacific, ANZ

    The best, most professional, well run and enjoyable ECA conference on the circuit.

  • Ralph Lerch

    Ralph Lerch Global Head of Export Finance, Commerzbank

    The best conference I've ever seen in export finance! The agenda and excellent content make this the go-to conference for all export finance professionals.

  • Beate  Mayer

    Beate Mayer Senior Director, BayernLB

    The conference in Paris was one of the best I ever attended (and believe me I attended a lot of them over the past 25 years) is a benchmark now.

  • Jörg  Redeker

    Jörg Redeker Senior Advisor Exportfinance, Landesbank Baden - Wurttemberg

    One of the best conferences I have ever attended with most of the panels and presentations offering fruitful information and a point of view, not just focusing on promoting speakers' companies. Both the venue, lunch and drinks offered a great opportunity to meet old contacts and make new ones. I particularly liked the smaller discussions in the idea labs.

  • Elisabeth Sutter-Becska

    Elisabeth Sutter-Becska Head of Global Export Finance, Raiffeisen Bank International

    The location was wonderful, the coffee strong, the sweets tempting, the programme really tight and very informative with excellent speakers & moderators. Simply perfect!

  • Simon Sayer

    Simon Sayer Managing Director, Global Head of STEF, Deutsche Bank

    The bar is raised in the export finance conference market with excellent micro breakout sessions, and macro keynote sessions and networking.

  • Matthias Wietbrock

    Matthias Wietbrock Managing Director, Northstar Trade Finance

    One of the best events I have been to in my 20 years in the industry.

  • Axel-Peter Ohse

    Axel-Peter Ohse Global Head of Export Finance, UniCredit

    It was a great conference with really good topics and good presentation and discussions. It’s a benchmark now!

  • Clemens Haas

    Clemens Haas Head of Export Finance Germany, BNP Paribas

    It was a great pleasure attending the conference, which was a well balanced mix of relaxed atmosphere, formidable venue, excellent meal and drinks and last but not least informative panels and presentations. There was plenty of time for networking, for many of us the most important thing on such occasions. Everything was smoothly organised. All in all, an exhilarating format, well differentiated from competitors.

  • Edwige Beguin

    Edwige Beguin Support team, Société Générale

    A dream team who managed to give a face-lift to the export finance events’ market! The professionalism of the organisers makes a huge difference in a competitive market like this.

  • Maxim Subbotin

    Maxim Subbotin Legal adviser, Strategic Projects department, Uralkali

    The borrowers' club discussion was one of the most useful for us, as we were able to share our experience about the banks and projects.

  • Kazuyoshi Kawakami

    Kazuyoshi Kawakami Managing Director & CEO, Mitsubishi Corporation

    An excellent opportunity for up to date industry insight and networking.
