Award ceremony

What is C4DTI DTC?

The Digital Trade Conference (DTC) is the annual, international, flagship event for ICC Centre for Digital Trade and Innovation (C4DTI). Taking place on 17–18 April 2024, it will discuss practical implementation, results from recent pilot initiatives and ongoing roll-outs:

• How we can implement interoperable systems across border with government and industry, drawing on international best practice
• Implementing international legal, rules and standards frameworks consistently across global supply chains
• Best practice solutions, lessons learnt from pilot initiatives and access to the international experts and thought leaders leading projects and programmes
• Practical solutions to managing key risks across global supply chains – data security, cybersecurity, and fraud
• Insights and thought leadership

Come join us at our annual C4DTI Digital Trade Conference where we will be focusing on the practical benefits of digitalising the trade ecosystem and discussing the “HOW” & with “WHAT RESULT”.

Learning Outcomes

  • what initiatives are underway and what lessons can be learnt

  • what the return on investment will be

Why attend an ICC United Kingdom event?

By attending our conference, you know that the content, speakers, and delegates are there to create outcomes that drive meaningful change at the highest level.

Our goal is to digitalise 60–80% of world trade by 2026 to make trade cheaper, faster, and simpler — all legal barriers removed and rules and standards frameworks in place so data and information can flow unimpeded.

ICC United Kingdom have been at the heart of driving the digitalisation of trade since 2017. We played a significant role in the establishment of the Electronic Trade Documents Act 2023 which removed all legal requirements to handle documents of title on paper, enabling companies to transact digitally under public law for the first time.

We remain at the forefront of trade digitalisation implementation with both business and government. Our recent initiatives include the Corporate Digitalisation Taskforce convening leading global corporates to help them realise the benefits of digital trade, our whitepaper on digital identities and a Trade Digitalisation Implementation Roadmap that will reinforce the need for interoperable reliable systems.

Don’t just sit back and listen, be part of the conversation that will shape the future of trade.

Who is this event for?

This event is for industry and government practitioners involved in delivering a cheaper, faster and simpler trading system.

It is primarily a technical event, aimed at decision makers across the spectrum of buyers, sellers, corporate finance, compliance, procurement, supply chain management, freight forwarding, port systems, warehousing, logistics, insurance, legal, customs, IT software and technology solution providers.
