Coface Country Risk Conference

Conference 2016

Coface Country Risk Conference in Switzerland
A premium event focusing on country and industry risks worldwide

Organised by Coface, this conference is an ideal platform for specialists and managers to examine and discuss country and industry risks. At our event, you’ll be at the centre of national and international expert discussions about economic and trade issues and also you will be able to hone your vision for the management of your company. Find out first-hand about the opportunities and risks of current economic events worldwide and share insights about the latest trends and developments with other senior managers.


In many countries, the Coface Country Risk Conference is one of the industry’s most important events.


By taking part, you will not only have the opportunity to optimise your export and investment decisions, but also to expand your knowledge in the areas of business, politics, society and the economy. We will analyse current events, examine the most important trends in the world economy and evaluate their influence on the economic situation facing Swiss companies. The challenge will be to establish the outlook for the Swiss industry in light of the current economic situation.


Please note: the official event language will be English.
