Final preparations are underway in anticipation of the 9th Global Family Office Summit to be held June 18-20 in Monaco under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and hosted by the 600-year-old Ritossa Family Office. An elite group of 400+ billionaires, sheikhs, royal families and business leaders representing $4 trillion in investor wealth will be center stage at the Fairmont Monte Carlo Hotel for a legendary celebration of global family businesses themed “The Rise and Rise of Family Offices.”
A few slots remain open for the Single Family Office International Tennis Tournament set for Friday, June 21 under the direction of legendary ATP tennis professional Diego Nargiso. Players will compete in singles and doubles, men’s and women’s events at the Monte-Carlo Country Club. MCCC Director Monsieur Eric Seigle will personally present the top three winners in each category with their prizes.
“Anthony Ritossa and myself are committed to long-term partnership in the interest of the substantial families and family offices that consider the Summit as a key opportunity for interaction and collaboration. There is truly no other event worldwide that offers the high quality of powerful speakers and delegates that Ritossa Family Office Summits provide,” said Giuseppe Ambrosio, President of the Monaco Single & Multi Family Office International Association. “In fact, the response to the Monaco Summit has been so overwhelming that we had to move the Summit to the Fairmont Monte Carlo Hotel in order to accommodate a record-breaking number of guests.”
“Monaco is always a perfect venue for our Family Office Summits and I look forward to hosting the 3rd event here in June. It is largely due to the support provided by Prince Albert II of Monaco, Giuseppe Ambrosio and the Summit Advisory Board that the event has become such a global sensation. We are very pleased that Markus Lehner, member of the Advisory Board and a resident of Monaco for 25 years, is the esteemed Chairman of the summit,” said Anthony Ritossa, Chairman of Ritossa Family Office.
“It is my privilege and honour to serve as the Chairman to the upcoming Family Office Investment Summit here in Monaco. Not only will it take place in our unique principality, but will also treat exciting, cutting-edge matters such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and progressive investments, which will change our world like nothing before,” said Markus Lehner, Principal, Markus Lehner Family Office and Chairman of the Summit.
“I have produced literally thousands of events and conferences around the world and never have I found such a broadness of vision and project. The official support of Sheik Zayed and the Monaco Prince, the presence of the heirs of Bahrain and Yugoslavia ruling families, the heirs of Reynolds, Rockefeller, Bismarck, Muhammad, Menelik, Selassie and a most innovative global finance platform is something unheard of before. Your event ranks in first place as the most astonishing and inspired world summit. I’m very proud to collaborate,” said Matteo Peri, CNBC Europe.
“Your wonderful Summit turned out to be the best conference I have been to. It’s only because of your splendid efforts and management, that made it so successful, highly stimulating and beneficial for all participants,” said Hadi Al Alawi, Chairman & CEO, Al Hayat Group, Kingdom of Bahrain.
“Ritossa Summits are the best in a perfect setting – we achieved US$360 million of investments,” said Nick Ayton, Founder & CEO, Chainstarter Ventures & Family Office Digital Asset Advisor, UK.
“Tremendous outcomes from being part of the 8th Global Family Office Investment Summit. Special thanks to Anthony Ritossa for the great hospitality. Looking forward to being part of the 9th Global Family Office Investment Summit in Monte Carlo – Monaco,” said Abdullah Al-Weshah, Private Office of H.E. Mubarak Bin Hamoodah, UAE.
“The 8th Global Family Office Summit was a crowning achievement for Anthony Ritossa and everyone who participated. It is no surprise that this is renowned as the largest and most exclusive worldwide family office gathering of all time and it is an honour to provide patronage to such an illustrious event. As at past Summits, many prominent families from around the world gathered for high level discussions about how to enrich the family legacy, grow and preserve wealth, and share ideas. We look forward to future events,” said Mohamed Al Ali, CEO & Advisor, Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum International Investments Enterprise, UAE.

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada
At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.
“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”
Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”
The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.
“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:
- Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
- Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
- Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.
The new website, now at www.supplychaincanada.com, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.
These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.
The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Export Portal to Address Best Practices in Sustainable Trade Facilitation at the Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum
Export Portal CEO Ally Spinu will be adding her take on the alignment of trade facilitation and sustainable development goals at a session at the 9th Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF) in New Delhi.
“The Asia-Pacific region is a wealth of unexplored opportunities which lay deep in the communities of local businessmen and women that just need support in bringing their amazing products to the world to see and buy,” Ms. Spinu said. “I am looking forward to this event and being a part of the change that will help local businesses from this part of the world sell their products globally. I deeply believe that shifting attention to developing SMEs is the major change international trade and local economies have been waiting for.”
This year’s APTFF will focus on how digital and sustainable trade facilitation measures and practices can bring prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The forum will investigate opportunities from trade digitalization for sustainable progress of the area and challenges ahead in materializing such opportunities. APTFF will feature panel discussions as well as interactive and informative sessions. These sessions will allow participants to share experiences and perspectives on different aspects of trade facilitation, including trade finance, cross-border eCommerce and paperless trade, transit, innovative application of emerging technologies, and more. APTFF will bring relevant regional initiatives and implementation cases to each session, making it a unique opportunity to share knowledge and practical lessons. The forum will also include many side-events providing a more in-depth exploration of the pertinent trade facilitation issues.
“Agricultural products are the fastest category and industry growing within Export Portal, and I can say that is just natural that SMEs around the world are actively looking for new ways for selling their products around the world,” Ms. Spinu said. “The role of innovative technologies such as Export Portal is crucial in helping these SMEs integrate within the world supply chain of food with ease and at optimal costs. I want to explain the current issues existing within SMEs’ integration in international trade due to the high cost involved and how technology slowly but surely changes this.”
Export Portal’s trade goals align directly with the purpose of this session, as its international B2B trade platform is an affordable and all-encompassing solution for SMEs all over the world. The features that are available and being developed on Export Portal, such as the panel of experts (EP+), the educational hub (EPU), and data flow insights (EPI), provide SMEs with the resources they need to trade effectively on an international scale safely, securely, and efficiently.
The Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation for Regional Prosperity session is co-organized by ADB, ESCAP, Ministry of Commerce, India and Confederation of Indian Industry and will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 9:00 to 10:45 AM.
