The buzz is already building for the 2018 London Summit, hosted by Finance Magnates on November 13-14 at Old Billingsgate. The event has continued to grow in each successive year and is now approaching its 7th installment in 2018. As has always been the case in years prior, space is extremely limited and despite being only July, is already running low for exhibitors.
Indeed, each year sees a high degree of demand for spots in the exhibition hall with most slots already reserved. Prospective attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to view the latest floorplan. Do not be fooled by the calendar; this is one event you do not wait to wait around for before reserving your spot.
A look at what is to come in the 2018 London Summit
Last year was unquestionably the largest London Summit in the history of its annual series, which saw a collective 2,000 attendees. As always, the event features an emphasis on all segments of the trading industry, allowing attendees to network, learn, and discuss leading issues.
This includes a packed slate of distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops over the two-day event. The London Summit is a truly unique experience every year, helping bring together individuals, executives, and thought leaders from around the world. 2018 is already looking to be the largest London Summit yet.

Where does the industry go from here?
The London Summit is a blend of both retail and institutional players, focusing on the leading issues from across the financial services industry. This includes an emphasis on regulation, with 2018 seeing some of the most sweeping changes in the past decade across key segments.
Earlier this year, brokers have had to grapple with a combination of MiFID II, ESMA and FCA edicts, and bans for crypto advertising from Twitter, Google, and Facebook. How and exactly how venues are responding to this shifting regulatory space will take center stage throughout the event.
In addition, after the abrupt rise of cryptocurrencies venues and the migration of blockchain technology into mainstream segments, the summit will provide a snapshot of the current industry. More recently, many banks and the world’s largest lenders have begun to assimilate this technology into their operations, while other exchanges and groups continue to make headway with new developments.
