I encourage all of you to attend this event. It’s the only conference that deals with U.S. and international issues in the ETF industry. This year it will concentrate on how regulatory changes will affect the industry. Because this conference receives the most attendees from Europe and Asia, it’s a great place to meet all the big players and firms in the industry.
It’s also easy to fit into your schedule. It runs only one day. The conference consists of a half day of workshops then the Awards dinner afterwards.
Some of this year’s workshops include:
· How and when to use leveraged ETFs and ETF Options
· Global ETF, ETN and ETC Product Developments-new ideas and trends
· Markets in crises-the impact on indices
Finally, the awards ceremony is unique on Wall Street in that the awards are not given by an outside body, but much like the film industry’s Academy Awards, the ETF industry votes on itself. So, this is a chance to see what the guys who run the ETF industry think are the most innovative products in the space right now.
I have attended the last two years. It’s very informative and a lot of fun, I encourage you all to go.
