The world’s most populous continent Asia, will be home to the iFX EXPO Asia for a second year in January 2014. The iFX EXPO Asia, a leading business to business exhibition that is jointly organized by Forex Magnates, a leading news publication, and ConversionPros, a specialist online marketing consultancy, returns to Macau after its successful inaugural event in January 2013. The event showcases the very best service providers in the electronic derivatives markets, and hosts useful and interesting discussion panels that are shaping the industry.
Foreign exchange derivatives, the world’s most liquid asset class, continues to grow as witnessed in the latest BIS FX Survey, thus new and existing participants are constantly in need for sound, innovative and problem solving solutions. In addition, with Asia holding the key for economic growth for the entire planet, the iFX EXPO Asia holds great importance for firms that are exploring new techniques and initiatives in a fragmented market place.
“This is the second year for the iFX EXPO Asia, and significantly larger than the last. We make it a point to keep these events small and intimate. However, the demand for this event is so strong we are forced to expand. Last year, we attracted over 40 exhibitors and over 1,100 attendees. This year we have increased to over 60 exhibitors, and well over 2,000 attendees,” said Gal Ron CEO of ConversionPros, in a statement to the media.
2013 has shown a 180 degrees turnaround for the industry from a bleak and dismal 2012, which saw declining volumes and profits, financial services’ firms have welcomed the positive trading activity coming on the back of volatile and uncertain markets. Most participants, in the OTC and listed derivatives segments, have reported year on year growth in trading volumes with certain brokerages achieving record figures, two of the largest brokerage firms in Japan crossed the formidable $1 trillion in total monthly trading volume.
iFX EXPO Asia 2013 was attended by over 1,100 visitors, delegates were professionals from the industry and were a true reflection of the diversity the global financial markets represent. The organizers anticipate the forthcoming event to attract over 2,000 professionals from the banking and financial markets space. “Just as the last event, even before the launch, the response from industry providers and attendees is remarkable,” said Michael Greenberg, CEO, Forex Magnates.
