RTE Summit 2022

November 7, 2022 and November 8, 2022
Capital C Amsterdam, The Netherlands
For RTEs by RTEs, this is your event! Network with your peers from around the globe, inform yourself about new developments, share experiences, and learn from fellow professionals. The 7th RTE Summit is coming to you from Former Diamond exchange "Capital C" in Amsterdam.
And when you become a diamond, you’ll see why life had to pressure you.

RTEs are like Diamonds

We are taking inspiration from this year’s location, Capital C, Amsterdam’s prolific former diamond trading location. The C in Capital C stands for Creativity, but it can also stand for Clarity, Cut, Carat, and Color: the four criteria by which a diamond is judged, and its price is set.

RTEs are like diamonds, they are polished and formed under high pressure and are as versatile as a diamond . When there is a lot of pressure, passion and issues they become like shiny objects and everyone wants a RTE to run their train.
