ETC Venues, 155 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 3YD

This was the LMA's fourth annual Developing Markets Conference in London, and some of the most senior and experienced professionals working in this market spoke at the event.

Despite recent market volatility, developing markets continue to offer attractive investment opportunities. This conference offers an ideal forum for our members active in developing market jurisdictions to listen to discussions on key current trends and issues to be considered when lending into these markets. The programme focused on developing markets in CEE/CIS, the Middle East, Turkey and Sub-Saharan Africa.

For the first time this year, the conference agenda comprised a plenary morning with the afternoon split into two breakout sessions; one focusing on CEE/CIS, Turkey and the Middle East; and the other Sub-Saharan Africa.
