Now in its 29th year, the Futures Industry Association (FIA) Expo is the place where professionals in and around the listed derivatives market meet – and Steadfast will be there, standing tall amongst the crowd. The expo this year runs from November 6 -7, with an open reception on November 5, and will take place inside the Chicago Hilton. The Expo features events that will help attendees understand the market, but there are also plenty of fun activities to take part in during off hours.
Over 130 exhibitors will be attending the 2013 FIA Expo, including Steadfast. Each and every one of them will be presenting the newest and best technology when it comes to helping businesses navigate and operate in the listed derivatives market. The 2013 Expo spans two whole days allowing attendees to experience everything there is to do and see at the event.
There will be plenty of interesting and informative speeches given at this year's expo. Some of the most successful traders in the business have been booked to speak. Among them is famed author and journalist George Will, who is scheduled to speak and will give an outsider's view from someone who understands remarkably well how the markets work.
Attendees will be overwhelmed and impressed by the vast amount of exhibitions and booths this year. In addition, one of the best things about this particular Expo is the built-in "networking time" when exhibitions are temporarily shut down to allow attendees and exhibitors more time to get to know each other.
The festivities end with the Great Chicago Steak Out Charity dinner on November 7. This unofficial closing ceremony has been part of the expo since 2008 and has raked in more than $1.7 million for the Greater Chicago Food Depository since its inception.
While the dinner is a great conclusion to the event, the Expo itself is a great way for professionals to meet one another and discuss their work. There are all kinds of different ways in which people can network and exchange ideas. Events are set up throughout the Expo as a way for attendees to network, obtain the latest information, and learn from each other.
