The leading event series defining today's corporate treasury agenda
EuroFinance’s Global Treasury Americas Miami gathered the most forward-thinking treasury teams to discuss how to help build the business strategies needed to prosper. This year, we were delighted to be back in-person and over the course of three days, the event provided actionable insights and solutions to help transform your treasury, increase efficiencies, protect the business and impact the bottom-line. We kept the pandemic top of mind and the health and well-being of all of our participants as we reconnected.
The agenda covered critical topics affecting treasury including political landscape, fraud, remote working, tax, to changing business models as well as more strategic concepts including the sustainability agenda, planning for growth, how to take control of enterprise data and risk forecasting. Varied case studies of treasury transformation detailed the practical steps to make enterprise and treasury digitalization a reality, and we looked at new tech in action.
