This conference is now the only conference in the calendar that attracts the largest number of CFOs/ Treasurers and all key industry professionals. For me, this is the only conference worth attending each year
Hasan Mustafa, RBS
The organisation and programming of the event were superb; rich in attendance in both numbers and quality of delegates, it was a great opportunity to take advantage of bilateral relationship meetings.
