So why should you attend TXF MENA 2017...

For starters, the data doesn't lie. The Middle East was the largest ECA market in 2016/2017 according to TXF Data. And it currently presents a perfect environment for ECA Structured Finance.  

But why does that matter? Well if the opportunity is there all you need to do is meet the right people and get the right insight to help you make your next deal. 

TXF MENA will have 350 senior professionals gathered to share their knowledge and network. That's 350 potential future business partners. And to give you a sense of who might be on the guest list this year, here is a selection of corporates who joined us in 2016:

Al Hamra Group
Atradius

Bahrain Petroleum Company

Beeah
Bharat Petroleum Corporation
Control Risks

Coskal (Ethiopia)
Crescent Group

Daimler AG
Danieli

You can talk to everyone in the room during our interactive idea labs and workshops. You can hear their concerns, where they are finding investment opportunities and how they are overcoming the challenges of doing business in the Middle East and Africa. And you can get to know everyone outside of a formal setting at our cocktail reception, ice-breaker drinks and networking lunches. 

It's a valuable networking opportunity that you won't want to miss. 

In addition, you will hear expert local advice from senior speakers. We know it can we quite difficult to sit and listen to lectures all day, so we like to make sure that we include some interactive session, like our Deal or no Deal and our Audience Response Survey (alongside all of the smaller breakout sessions that we include in our agendas). That way you can really focus on the topics that matter to you and get the most from your two days out of the office. 

 

And finally, if you don't yet have reason enough to attend, our previous guests had some lovely things to say about TXF Middle East 2016 - 

Very useful conference that allows networking with key companies: a very rare opportunity

2 Day ECA Training Course

5th & 6th November | The Address Hotel, Downtown Dubai

This is your chance to access a unique training and networking opportunity. Join us on the 5th & 6th of November for our ECA Finance training course and you will deepen your understanding of ECA Finance, from the basics, through to complex procedures and multi-financed projects. 

Our instructors at CC Solutions have over 50 years of combined experience working with ECAs - they can show you how to create deals that work for you and guide you through the application process. They also don't mind interruptions - so if you have a burning question at any time, just ask! 

Furthermore, you will be learning in small groups, working together to put what you have learnt into practice. This will allow you to really get to know the ECAs, exporters, financial institutions and law firms attending the course, hear their concerns and make connections which you can take outside of the classroom and into your role. 

For more information on our training course, please download the course brochure here or visit our dedicated training page. And remember, you can get a discount off of the price of the course when you book together with TXF MENA 17. Get in touch with one of the team on 0203 735 5183 or email [email protected] to reserve your place.
