South Africa will be hosting its first major Forex expo later this year and already there are high expectations for its success. Several of the Forex industry’s most industrious brokers will be participating in the event including FXCM, Hantec Markets, GKFX and ETX Capital and Swiss MIG Bank who are all sponsors of the event. The Expo Director, Jeni Kestova, believes that the South African Forex Expo will provide “unmatched ROI for exhibitors looking for growth in the near future.”
This thought may be more than marketing hype – according to the World Bank, approximately 35,000 South Africans are active Forex tradaers, and hundreds of new accounts are opened daily in the country. This alone, is a good enough reason for brokers to attend the event – and for interested traders and potential traders to come see what all the buzz is about.
Given the high numbers of pre-registered retail traders who hail from Europe, South Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa, as well, it is estimated that the Forex Expo could welcome at least 5,000 visitors. Along with the participating brokers, visitors can meet with some of the leading technology providers including Integral, Markets Pulse, xFSOL, Leverate and Spot Option. The Expo will showcase international analysts and feature an interactive Forex Lounge.
Speakers and topics for the expo have not yet been released, but with such an impressive roster of sponsors and participants, it seems reasonable to assume that the agenda will be just as interesting.
