The selection procedure, along with the voting, is a multi-faceted process, and takes into account a number of criteria, and as explained by Mr. Greenberg in the run-up to the conference, there can be a number of methods by which the final nominees can be selected for each award category.
As a fitting precursor to this year’s award ceremony, it was revealed to attendees of the London Summit as to the winner of the “Most Innovative Financial Technology” award, presented to payment processing company SafeCharge at the Elevator Pitch, during which technology companies were given a two minute slot in which to describe their innovation.
Mr. Greenberg then took center stage to announce the winners of the eagerly awaited award ceremony itself, which commenced at 6.30pm.
With this year’s awards now in the hands of this year’s successful nominees, another prestigious and well-attended Forex Magnates Summit can be reflected on by all. The open bar is currently providing refreshment, further conversation opportunities and relaxation after the energetic and informative two day event.
