On June 14, 2018, members and friends of the Lugano Commodity Trading Association (LCTA) attended in large numbers the annual “Commodity Traders’ Dinner”, one of the most important event that the LCTA organises in the year.

The first part of the event took place at the Convention Centre in Lugano and was followed by a networking dinner on Lugano Lake.
Sponsor of the event – Euler Hermes, our precious partner. Special guests of the evening were Gilbert Wright – Co-Founder and Managing Partner for Maritime & Commodity Services, LLC (MCS) and Marine Inspection, LLC (MIL) – and Lisa McGoey, the Executive Director of the Mississippi Valley Trade & Transport Council and has been since 2011. Mr. Wright has over 35 years’ experience in the international commodity inspection and shipping logistics industries and gave a speech on the overview of the Commodity Traffic & the Challenges along the Mississippi River. Mrs. McGoey has over 20 years’ experience in the maritime industry and transportation industry as a paralegal in several different law firms in the New Orleans area and presented the Mississippi Valley Trade & Transport Council. It was a great occasion to deepen different topics but also a unique opportunity to meet in the area of Lugano commodity traders as well as representatives of banks, insurances, fiduciaries, shipping companies and other services providers.
