15th Global Conference on Bank Guarantees (20 - 21 May 2019)

Every year we arrange for a unique collection of different topics including, the industries’ latest trends and developments as well as sessions that are designed to analyse the legal and practical issues in bonds and guarantees, and of course, this year will not be any different:

We will cover the most recent pressing issues, first and foremost the new SWIFT forms, take a look at compliance issues, in particular the up-dated Wolfsberg Principles for FIs and debate the progress the drafting group of the International Standard Demand Guarantee Practice (ISDGP) is making. With digitalisation initiatives surfacing everywhere, we shall gain knowledge on a Blockchain initiative for Demand Guarantees in Russia and travel from there to Georgia, this year’s country issue. Educationally we will cover dispute avoidance and resolution by understanding arbitration and the evergreen subject of injunctions. The programme is rounded off by drafting exercises and case studies.


The Essentials of Commodity Financing (22 May 2019)

This course will provide an intensive and interactive analysis of the practical and operational risks in the finance of International Trade and Commodities. It will explain how international commodity trade is financed and consider the key principles that need to be adhered to and understood. It will also provide an analysis, of the main trade products and assess when and where they are appropriate to use.


Case Studies on Letters of Credit and Bank Guarantees (22 May 2019)

Case studies for not only LC specialist but also Bank Guarantee experts to discuss their challenges with our their fellow colleagues. The day is designed to foster mutual understanding among the different specialist and will further address the corporates’ perspective on trade finance instruments. As usual, difficult and exceptional cases are presented from the bankers, commodity traders, forwarders and insurance point of view.
Send your own cases – anonymously if you like - to be analysed and discussed to e.treu(at)icc-austria.org.

Our case study session became increasingly popular over the recent years, so please kindly note that submission will be handled on a first come, first serve basis. Do not miss the chance to have your case discussed and hand it in early.


14th Global conference on Letters of Credit (23 - 24 May 2019)


What makes this conference different and successful is our strong and distinctive focus on content. We provide a truly international forum that addresses the challenges and seeks to answer the questions LC practitioners face in their daily business environment.

With the new e-UCP and e-URC one of our focus will be the current developments in digitisation. Through that the world moves closer together by the minute, therefore sound understanding of islamic finance has also become an educational issue amongst many others such as drafts, silent confirmations, unwise modifications of UCP and of course, as every year the ICC Banking Commission Opinions.


We are also extremely pleased to announce that ICC Secretary General John Denton will join us for a keynote speech on Future changes in global trade flows - due to ever-increasing trade barriers.


CDCS/CSDG: CDCS® and CSDG® holders attending will earn 6 PDUs per day.
