Pole Star sponsors GTR MENA 2023

Pole Star sponsors GTR MENA 2023 to drive the conversation on the most critical aspects of economic sanctions on the maritime industry.

21st - 22nd February 2023  |  9:00 am - 5:00 pm  |  Dubai, UAE

We are pleased to be attending and presenting at the GTR MENA 2023 trade finance gathering in Dubai.

Based on the topic “Thriving in turbulent times”, the most comprehensive and long-established trade finance gathering for the Middle East & North Africa, GTR MENA, is returning to Dubai on 21-22 February 2023.

Attendees will include over 750 key figures from local, regional, and global markets, alongside hundreds of companies engaged in international trade and more than 60 presenters from across global trade industries. 

The in-person event will cover critical market insights and provide excellent networking opportunities with senior to C-suite experts, delivering a highly anticipated opportunity to connect with key players and companies involved in trade and exports.

Reflecting on a year of great change both globally and in the region, from the ramifications of global supply chain disruption to surging commodity prices and rampant inflation, to the excitement and optimism generated by the region’s many exciting transformation programmes, GTR MENA will be a pivotal conversation for this region this year.

Pole Star is pleased to be sponsoring and exhibiting at Stand no. 3. Charles Ike, VP Maritime Trade, will be exploring the current and future sanctions landscape and trade processes in the ‘Finding solutions to fighting trade-based crime’ session on Day One, 11:45. Our EMEA-based Key Account Manager, Hatim-AL-Hatimi, will also be attending the event.
