sorry, we are fully booked!

Practical solutions favourable to theoretical knowledge

Are you faced with unusual situations and challenges concerning letters of credit, stand-by letters, bank guarantees, performance bonds or any other instrument? Do you need practical help to find a solution?


If so, then a new workshop on unusual cases and problems in international trade finance could be for you. The EBRD’s Trade Facilitation Programme and ICC Austria have teamed up to develop a three-day workshop where you will have the chance to debate individual cases (including your own) with colleagues and experts from around the world in order to find legally correct and, more importantly, practical solutions to daily problems.


The workshop will be held from 13 to 14 November 2019 in Vienna. The first two days will focus on documentary credits and bank guarantees, and the third day will look at factoring. Do not miss your chance to get the expert opinion of Andrea Hauptmann, Gabriele Katz, Vin O’Brien & Technical Advisor Glenn Ransier.


Get your case discussed: If you have a particular challenge or problem to solve, follow these steps.

  1. Submit your case
    Upon registration you will receive a template ppt slide that you can use to submit your cases anonymously (if required) until the 9th of September to e.treu@icc-austria.org. They will then be forwarded to all participants and experts prior to the event in order to review them (as preparation).
  2. Discuss your problem within a working group
    Next to the template you will receive during registration, you will be asked to fill out a participants’ profile which enables us to set up suitable working groups. A working group will consist of 5-8 participants (depending on the overall number of registrations). Together, you will work through your first pack of cases, discuss them and draft a possible solution.
  3. See how other groups as well as experts would solve the problem in the plenary session
    The solution found by the different groups will then be presented in the plenary session which is moderate by the experts.
  4. Take the solution to your case back home
