About the Event

Market Disruptions And Managing Risk In Uncertainty 

The global economy is at an abyss with trade wars, tariff walls, nationalism and other disruptions tearing down globalization and the free movement of trade and resources. An accelerating shift away from multilateralism towards bilateralism and protectionism. The world is on an uncertain and chaotic precipice. The year 2020 will be challenging for commerce. All markets will be under intense, sudden and extreme pressures from political, economic and natural calamities – this is the new paradigm.

Richcomm Global Services, Dubai Multi Commodities Centre and Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange invite you to participate in the only commodity centric forum to discuss and debate these disruptions and transform these into opportunities. Meet industry experts from across the commodity spectrum, investment and asset managers, regulators and service providers and engage in a strategic debate to identify the strategies that work for you!

The conference covers a broad range of commodity fields from agriculture, energy, precious metals and precious stones.  

Meet the experts on 9 February 2020 at Almas Conference Centre in JLT, Dubai.

Have we reached ‘peak oil’? What next as sustainability and climate activism? Trade wars and tariffs have created grey market trading and bilateral G-G agreements, is this the beginning of the end of the US dollar as the global currency? Beyond Meat and veganism has focused interest in the pulses sector…banking is retreating with $2 trillion+ global trade finance opportunity!
