The Full FX at FIA Expo on October 3 takes place at the Sheraton Grand Riverwalk in Chicago and is a one day event on the sidelines of the prestigious FIA Expo event, which takes place on 2-3 October. The event is the first by The Full FX in the Americas.
The Full FX at FIA Expo event will bring our unique conference structure to the US for the first time, with a packed programme of short, sharp, (and not over-populated) panels; TED talks, one-on-one interviews; and our “How about this for an idea?” sessions. We may even manage to squeeze in another edition of our chat show, “For FX’ Sake” which proved so popular in Stockholm recently!
With sustained volatility making a return to FX markets and regulation changing the way we have to think about our business, there is no better way to keep up with the latest trends than coming to The Full FX at FIA Expo to meet with your peers, your clients and hear from industry leaders as we drive thought leadership to help the FX industry evolve and succeed.
