TheCityUK International Conference 2023

Collaborating globally for sustainable growth

TheCityUK International Conference 2023, in partnership with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and HSBC, will bring together influential leaders from across the financial and related professional services industry, politics and the regulators to discuss the key commercial drivers and themes that will guide business strategies and underpin the UK’s status as a world-leading international financial centre.

Through a series of keynotes, panel sessions and discussions our International Conference, also supported by State Street, will focus on the challenges and opportunities for the industry in the global context, covering issues such as investment and growth, transformative innovation, the net-zero transition and international trade and investment trends.

You can watch all the sessions from last year's International Conference 2022 here.
