Once a year, the BELLIN Community gets together to meet and mingle, to share information, to get to know new people and to be immersed in the expertise of hundreds of industry professionals. Where? At 1TC Treasury Convention, an annual English-language event exclusively for BELLIN clients, that will be taking place for the fifth time on 15/16 March 2017 – only a few days from now. This year’s event is dedicated to “Visibility and Efficiency in Treasury.”
Clients get to benefit from more than 30 international speakers and three discussion panels, and they can join one of 13 workshops presenting best practices for achieving greater efficiency, visibility and security in treasury. Day 1 kicks off with a keynote speech by Malcolm Grant, Chief of Treasury at IOM, International Organization for Migration. This will be followed by a discussion panel looking into best practice treasury processes that will be discussed in more detailed in three workshops with BELLIN clients later on. The afternoon will see an auditor panel discussion where the “Big 4” discuss sanctions, Big Data, blockchain and the likely impacts of a continued “flood of regulations” on treasuries. The first day will be rounded out with the BELLIN Champions Awards and the exclusive presentation of our new “We Love Treasury 2” book and the videos going along with it.
Payments are another integral part of every treasurer’s work life. While no two companies are alike, the overall objectives are the same: transparency and visibility as well as security. What is the best way to integrate payments processes? What challenges does the future hold? These and other questions will be raised on Day 2 at another panel discussion with BELLIN clients. This is followed by the exclusive presentation of the new BELLIN product BELLIN°6, how we endeavor to revolutionize treasury and which markets we’re aiming to conquer. We will then proceed to look at our flagship product tm5 as well as at new services. In addition, the #1TC17 program boasts an exhibition by 17 selected partners that provides significant added value to BELLIN clients. Overall, #1TC17 features highlights in abundance: unique first hand treasury accounts, interesting discussion panels, the latest information and valuable personal contacts. It is no coincidence that 100% of last year’s attendees would recommend 1TC to their peers!
1TC: From Zero to Hero
1TC Treasury Convention has become a well known event in the world of treasury. Germany’s very first conference exclusively dedicated to treasury kicked off in 2012 and was off to a flying start: around 150 participants from 10 countries and 10 exhibitors made what was literally the “1st Treasury Convention” a true success. The following year, the exclusive BELLIN customer event was renamed to “1TC,” and we were able to up the numbers to 180 delegates from 11 countries and 13 exhibitors. 2014 saw us hit the 220 delegates mark, and we could welcome guests from 12 countries. In 2015, we decided to move from the “run up to Christmas spot” to a date early in the year. The fourth 1TC in January 2016 focused on global treasury, and this international character was also echoed in the audience: around 250 delegates from 13 countries and 14 exhibitors as well as 21 speakers from six countries. 1TC has bloomed into the leading treasury conference in Germany and we have already exceeded the numbers from last year! And of course we’re celebrating our 5th anniversary!
