What’s different about our global conference is our 2020 perspective. Each plenary session and breakout will provide a look ahead to help multinationals plan for the future. With economies worldwide venturing into recovery mode, commercial strategies truly going digital across industry sectors and the impact of huge cross border initiatives such as BEPs, the 2020 tax world will be poles apart from today. By combining this futuristic view with an East + West fusion dimension and specific actions to take away from all of our sessions, we envisage a thought provoking and value added conference for our client and Taxander attendees alike. What’s more, Taxand’s customary blend of bespoke client meetings and networking opportunities, provide a robust platform to share expertise particular to your business needs.
Held in Shanghai, the event will be further boosted by fascinating cultural influences from the world’s
second largest economy.
