Our plans for 2021

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021! We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating and ringing in the new year with your loved ones. We’re so looking forward to continuing our work together.

XTRF buys out venture fund We’re pleased to announce that on 21 December 2020, we finalized negotiations to buy out a venture fund that invested in the company back in 2014.

As in December, it will bring together excellent speakers discussing topical issues affecting the industry, and of course plenty of opportunities to meet and interact with peers and colleagues.…
