Get Ready for the 2022 Edition of the SAP Conference on Global Trade and Tax!

After a successful virtual event last year, we are pleased to be on onsite for the 2022 International Conference on Global Trade and Tax, presented by SAP and TAC Events.

So, are you ready to join us in Amsterdam, Netherlands on November 8 and 9?

2022 is the perfect time to attend this conference: the global regulatory landscape is changing more rapidly than ever; with factors including supply chain disruptions, increasing prices, new e-invoicing mandates and a global minimum tax. Organizations facing an ever-growing array of new legal mandates need  new tactics and technologies to stay on top of these. Discover how organizations use SAP solutions to meet these challenges and benefit from process automation by proactively managing tax and international trade.

Attendees will have access to 1.5 days of case studies from SAP customers, solution experts and partners, two pre-conference workshops, and plenty of opportunities to network and catch up with colleagues and friends in Amsterdam!

We look forward to sharing a wealth of exclusive business-focused content not found anywhere else. Join us live and in person for an experience like no other.

So, what can you expect from this conference?
