The theme of the 2017 CTRM Conference will be “Commodities at a Crossroads”.

The event, roundtable discussions, and presentations will focus on the massive changes that are being experienced across the commodities trading business and on how technology with an emphasis on CTRM and CM software, can help with many of these challenges. From blockchain to Artificial Intelligence, from visualization to big data, the changes and challenges experienced by the commodities industry are demanding new approaches and innovation.

As commodity traders grapple with traceability, increased regulatory and stakeholder scrutiny, lower commodity prices, increasing costs and decreasing profits, structural change and so on, CTRM and related technologies must also change and evolve. Topics covered will include is CTRM in the Cloud the future?, What promise does blockchain hold for commodity supply chains, how can data be visualized faster and more easily to allow decisions and what role does automation have?

Situated 8 minutes from Amsterdam’s city centre and 15 minutes from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol the RAI Amsterdam is easy to reach by both public transport or by car and has ample parking facilities on and outside its site.
