As the sun rises above the Grand Resort in Limassol, all leading industry professionals are preparing for the first day of the iFX Expo conference. Some of them arrived a day before just to attend a pre-event welcoming party that started with a splashing get-together around the pool area. Attendees and exhibitors did not hesitate much before they began networking, meeting, mingling and having drinks in the friendly atmosphere which surrounded the event.
The happening was opened with a speech by the Chairman of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), Demetra Kalougerou. She expressed her views about the progress that has been made throughout the difficult past year in restoring confidence in the Cypriot financial system. She also reiterated the commitment of the governing bodies on the island to continue to provide a quality regulatory environment for the forex and binary options companies which are licensed by CySEC.
As the evening went on, participants continued to meet and greet until late evening, gathering impressions and already sharing contacts and vibrantly discussing the latest trends within the industry.
