BAFT Virtual MENA Bank to Bank Forum

BAFT’S 2020 Virtual MENA Bank Forum originally scheduled for September 1 – 2, 2020 has pivoted to a virtual conference, which will be held on September 2, 9, & 16, 2020. 

Business Unusual: Today’s business landscape can be described as many things, but ‘business as usual’ is definitely not one of them. Join BAFT and TFG for the 2020 Virtual MENA Bank to Bank Forum as we bring together leading industry executives and financial services professionals from the Middle East and Africa to discuss the future of the region in light of unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19.

Previously scheduled to be held in Dubai, this year’s new virtual format will allow individuals from far-and-wide to jointly come together without the hindrance of travel, budgetary constraints or scheduling conflicts. Our aim is to utilize this opportunity to harness the power of digital channel delivery to allow for greater participation in the international transaction banking industry, giving you the same opportunities to participate, learn collaborate and network, at no cost.
