What is FXIC?
Our inaugural Forex Industry Conference will take place Wednesday, March 20th, 2013 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, with exclusive pre- and post-event cocktail receptions at Marriott Marquis' The View and the Hudson Hotel's Sky Terrace. Speakers, panellists, topics, and sponsors are carefully selected to maximize value for each attendee.
Who will attend?
The event will bring together traditional and FX buy-side funds, retail and institutional FX brokerages, banks and non-bank liquidity providers, regulators and industry associations, marketing and technology providers, and non-FX brokerage firms exploring or growing an FX offering. While many participants will find natural synergies through one-off conversations at the event, we are organizing focused meetings between sponsors and attendees where a natural partnership or idea exchange exists.
