Forex expos 2017 are the place where the industry gathers to share innovations and discuss new trends. It can be an excellent opportunity to take the pulse of industry leaders, a chance to find an innovative solution for you business, a place to network or even make some deals.
As a business owner in the forex space, before deciding to attend “Forex expo 2017”, “Forex event 2017” or “Forex conference 2017”, you need to take a step back and ask yourself what you are looking to achieve. Each particular event has its strengths, weaknesses, focuses and people who attend. Some will put you in contact with great solutions, whilst others will allow you to access amazing networking opportunities. Some will allow you to showcase your business, and others will attract investors and deal-makers. Sometimes, the conference will even have a matching service that will allow you to set up a meeting with a key opinion leader, investor or decision maker ahead of time. Then, once you know what outcome you wish to achieve, deciding which conference to attend will become easier, and allow your needs to be met more effectively.
What you can find in a Forex expo in 2017?
The exhibition floor of any Forex expo 2017 will be full of unique technology and other solutions geared towards business owners in the Forex space. You can expect to see exhibitors ranging from risk and compliance companies to affiliates, data & analytics companies, white label offerings, software solutions, financial services, accounting services, and many more. It is worthwhile having a look through the exhibitors list before the expo and reach out to key companies and services, to discuss their potential benefits for your business.
Forex conferences in 2017 are the perfect place to learn about new technologies, tools and providers from around the world. This year’s Forex event calendar includes amazing expos, seminars, conferences and workshops, given by leading international brokers, banks, tech providers and other industry suppliers. These activities are often geared towards new directions and challenges facing the industry, and the exhibitors will often provide possible solutions or anticipate future directions. This can provide enormously valuable forward planning information, as well as the chance to discuss future trends with the experts.
With so many industry players, it is inevitable that FX expos 2017 are wonderful places for networking. Expos provide significant opportunity to establish new business relationships as well as an excellent opportunity to deepen relationships in a face to face manner, strengthening existing relationships. A chance for a face to face with an existing contact not only allows you to put a name to a face, but gives you the chance to take the existing relationship to the next level. Make sure you tee-up meetings with existing contacts prior to the conferences. Doing this will allow you to gauge who will be attending the conference, or even giving you the chance to leverage an existing contact into a new networking opportunity.
Whilst much of the content at expos are geared towards the FX industry, there is also a value for traders to come and learn more about the industry. In recent years there has been a shift from a pure B2B environment, as individual traders become more of a factor through IB (introducing brokers), money management opportunities and affiliates. Traders can come and learn new tricks and see tools designed to help them improve as investors. With much of the marketing focus shifted towards external sales and retention programs like IB’s and money managers, this segment will attract attention from exhibitors. It is a unique opportunity for IB’s or affiliates with good historical trading levels or market share to access a variety of new brokers and negotiate a better revenue agreement.
Opportunities – FX Conferences at 2017 provide the opportunity to explore expansion possibilities, particularly due to a focus on globalization. With tightening regulations and heightened competition, expanding to new markets such as Asia Pacific can provide improvement in bottom line performance. Forex and Binary Options expos can provide the ideal starting point for establishing new relationships to penetrate emerging markets.
B2B – For those considering entering the Forex market, there is no better place than an forex expo.
