The largest financial B2B expo, the iFX EXPO, kicked off yesterday, January 23rd, with the Welcome Party, where the thousands of participants and exhibitors attending the event had the opportunity to catch up over drinks and bites.
Today’s lineup at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre featured a packed agenda of seminars and panels which address the core issues of the industry. Our very own, Lea Wang, Head of Business Development APAC, conducted a workshop in which she explained the importance of a robust ecosystem in the global financial trading market. The workshop was received with great enthusiasm as Mrs. Wang’s engaging presentation detailed the core elements of a successful financial trading institution.
Mrs. Wang was also honoured to be invited to speak in the iFX EXPO’s signature panel in Chinese. The panel was composed of local executives and experts and the discussion explored the Asian FX industry in 2018.
iFX EXPO guests who stopped by PrimeXM’s booth were also surprised to find a lucky draw competition taking place. Visitors were invited to drop their business cards in the lucky draw box for a chance to win major gifts. The competition will also continue tomorrow and we would like to extend a welcome to everyone to join us in booth #51.
The expo wrapped up at 5:00 pm today, while sponsors and participants will have the chance to get together later tonight at the iFX EXPO Night Party in a less formal atmosphere.
The second day of the expo is expected to be even busier than today with many more interesting discussions and seminars taking place.
PrimeXM CEO, Cristian Vlasceanu, will also be part of a panel tomorrow at 2:00 pm, which will be discussing liquidity in Asia and the unique challenges it presents, as well as key factors brokers, LPs and technology firms need to consider for regional growth. Participants in the panel will include executives from various industry segments and will provide a better understanding of how global developments in regulation and trading technology affect the Asian market.
