Dear Colleagues,
We are pleased to inform you that the 8th International
Trading Conference 2018 will take place on Tuesday, the 23rd of October in Ulsan, Korea. This event has now become a leading forum where experts on energy markets from home and abroad get together to discuss trends in the global energy market and establish strategies to further promote the energy market in Northeast Asia.

Ulsan has long been looking into measures to establish infrastructure for finance and ICT, by drawing on its rich expertise in oil storage and the sophisticated infrastructure in logistics as a port city. Ulsan has high hopes to establish an energy cluster for Northeast Asia to become a hub for not only Korean industries, but also for the global energy industry.

Amidst great change anticipated in the energy market with the emergence of
innovative technologies, this year’s conference will be held under the theme,“The future of a technology-based energy market”to focus on changes in the energy market brought about by blockchain and cutting edge ICT and the strategies to stay in step with such change. We hope the event will serve as a meaningful gathering where we pull our wisdom together to discover new growth engines for the energy market in the 4th industrial revolution.

We really appreciate your attendance in the ITC 2018, which is co-organized by Ulsan Metropolitan City and Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology.
