Overview

We look forward to hosting our first event in Chicago in the summer of 2019. This year we have moved to 4x events for the first time and this conference signifies the first annual Americas meeting we will be hosting moving forward. Chicago is the perfect location for the first of these annual meetings, being the third largest city
in the US and has the fourth largest GDP in the world, following only New York, Tokyo and LA.

It is an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation and notably the home of the largest and most diverse derivatives market in the world, generating 20% of all volume in commodities and financial futures.

We expect another sold out event, naturally this will have a large North American contingent, however, is open to members all over the world and already many firms from Asia / Pacific and LATAM have confirmed they wish to attend. With attendee numbers capped at 180 and running over 3 days this is an excellent opportunity to both meet a large number of your colleagues whilst also having time to spend more focused time with key people you wish to connect with.

Furthermore, we have a very special program planned. Professionally we will be sourcing some fantastic speakers and providing significant time for networking / relationship development. This will come in the form of breakout sessions, networking tables and personal matchmaking. Whilst socially we have many activities from member dinners, a walking tour, drinks reception, gala dinner at the Chicago Art Institute (former home of the stock exchange), a river cruise giving the best vantage point to see the city and also an mob crime tour to learn about the Chicago underworld. So truly something for everyone and all the components of a truly memorable experience.

We hope to see you there, for a wonderful few days of professional and social networking.

Warm Regards
Tom Wheeler
