As previously promised, when reporting on the iFXEXPO Asia, which took place in Macau China, and with that event behind us, we now turn our attention to what aspires to be the flagship event when it comes to retail finance B2B exhibitions. We are talking about the iF EXPO International which is scheduled to take place at the Grand Resort Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus between the 27th and 29th of May 2014.
Although there are still 97 days left before the event, according to an official press release by one of the Expo’s main organizers, CONVERSION PROS, the event’s exhibitor and sponsorship packages are already 70% sold, and the event is expected to attract more than 1,500 attendees, across hundreds of brokerages, technology developers and independent service providers (ISVs).
Indeed the aspiration, soon to be proven a certainty, is that this particular event will establish itself as the single largest gathering of professionals working in the foreign exchange industry, representing, amongst others, hundreds of online brokers as well as financial services technology companies from all over the world.
Attending the iFX EXPO International will be a great way to get informed of the latest trends and developments in the retail forex industry, enabling one to stay up to date with what is going on, how and by whom. Attending the EXPO is also a great way to mingle with key stakeholders in the industry, fostering friendships or collaborations, or simply checking out the competition to be able to adjust your own strategies accordingly.
The online brokerage industry is multifaceted and succeeding in it requires a solid understanding of technological, regulatory, marketing and sales principles. Moreover, the key stakeholders in the industry are an amalgamation of liquidity providers, technology providers, banks, retails brokers, white-label partners and affiliates, to list just a few.
Events such as the iFX EXPO International are the perfect one stop shop bringing together all the key players from all the core spectrums of the industry. Besides the exhibition the event will also include important workshops featuring dedicated sessions on some of the hottest topics in the industry, for example the issue of virtual currencies. Whether you are member of an already established firm in the industry, or simply someone interested in starting up a Forex /CFD or Binary Option brokerage, attending the event will be very useful and instrumental.
We will be reporting further on this landmark event, including more details on the agenda and participants as the day approaches.
