FinanceFeeds to present FX industry conference in Guangzhou, bringing Western firms to a vital Chinese audience

Join all important Chinese partners in Guangzhou on May 12 and 13 for a highly valuable FX industry conference presented by FinanceFeeds in conjunction with FXWord

China has been the focus of many companies across the entire spectrum of the FX industry for a number of years now, and it is considered a very important region for retail and institutional firms, as well as their supporting technology providers and platform vendors.

For this reason, engagement with the leaders of the Chinese FX industry is vital, and in order to further the business relationship between China and its critical international partners, FinanceFeeds will be hosting a comprehensive FX industry conference in the heart of one of  China’s most prominent second tier development cities – Guangzhou.

The conference, which will take place on May 12 and 13 2017 at the prestigious The Banquet Hall at the Sofitel Guangzhou Sunrich Hotel in the Tianhe District of Guangzhou City. and will be produced in conjunction with FXWord, the event’s high profile Chinese partner and organizer.

Dates: May 12 and 13

Entrance is FREE for non-exhibitors

The conference will differ from many existing events, in that there will be specific subjects of interest to a Chinese commercial audience, as well as matters which are important to Western firms wishing to engage with crucial strategic partners in mainland China.

Commencing the event will be a full year-end overview of the topography of the burgeoning FX industry in China, and how leaders of China’s industry view their expectations for the OTC derivatives industry for the remainder of 2017, which will lead to panel discussions which will feature senior executives from Chinese and Western firms, dissecting subjects that are topical to Chinese market participants.

There will be a very strong emphasis on face to face communication with potential business associates, senior executives within Chinese firms, in an exclusive environment with unparalled opportunities for networking.

The event will be featured in Chinese media, and will be attended and covered by over 15 Chinese media companies, including Baidu which will present the event on a nationwide basis, in keeping with China’s emphasis on broadcast media channels for commercial purposes.

In terms of industry sector, FX brokerages, settlement firms, internet financial companies and their respective solutions providers, asset managers, big data risk management companies, liquidity providers, FX bridge companies, trading platform providers and payment firms will form some of those participating in the two day conference.

FinanceFeeds has conducted substantial research in China over the course of the past two years, and has great understanding of business in the region and how Western companies need to interact with Chinese partners and vice versa.

Introducing the conference will be FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod, who will welcome international guests and exhibitors, and the event will be covered live on FinanceFeeds during the course of its two day program, with interviews, panel coverage and news and insights being brought to you in the detailed, comprehensive method that is a FinanceFeeds specialty.

FinanceFeeds looks forward to hosting you in one of China’s all important Tier 2 development cities which is home to a massive and highly valuable FX industry, and introducing the conference, Mr Saks McLeod says: “Many FX firms recognize real value in operating in China, and a few very large, well capitalized firms have succeeded, however there is a massive and largely untapped base of highly professional introducing brokers with offices that resemble those of brokerages, wealth managers, technology firms and hosting companies in operation, making mainland China not only a focus for Western brokerages but a very lucrative market indeed.”

“I very much look forward to meeting you all at the conference, and am certain that by convening in Guangzhou, companies looking to secure their relationships with Chinese commercial partners will be very much at an advantage when provided with the opportunity to meet, discuss current matters of importance and secure very important deals” he added.
