Since the launch in 2001, TradeTech has become the industry's prime source of strategies, information and networking and is the most comprehensive industry get together in the world.
It combines a high level conference, with a large exhibition hall, to combine unparalleled networking, benchmarking and learning opportunities into one event.
Created by an industry advisory board, it is an event created “for the industry by the industry” where all the key issues are uncovered, discussed and resolved. Last year TradeTech was fully supported by all of the large investment banks, as well as dozens of solution providers, MTFs, stock exchanges and technology innovation companies and industry media.
What makes TradeTech so unique is the quality of the speaking faculty and the interactive structure of the program. Over the years, TradeTech has been tailored to encourage discussion around practical case studies and “real life” examples giving the attendees executable strategies for their trading desk to implement immediately upon their return from the conference.
