18th Asia Pacific Trading Summit

The Largest One-Day Electronic Trading Event in the Region!

Rescheduled: 22 July 2020, JW Marriott Hong Kong

In consideration of the increasingly serious situation posed by the Coronavirus outbreak, the FIX Asia Pacific Education and Marketing Committee has decided to postpone the 18th Asia Pacific Trading Summit until 22nd July, 2020. The venue for the event, JW Marriott Hong Kong, remains unchanged.

We understand that postponing the event may cause a disruption to the plans of many, and for this, we apologize. This was not an easy decision to make, but one which we feel has the best interests of our community in mind. Our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our Speakers, Sponsors, Attendees and Staff, and we greatly appreciate everyone's patience and understanding in this regard. For those who have already registered to attend, your registrations are still valid, and you do not have to register again for the new date.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and continued support. We sincerely hope that the global situation will soon start to improve, and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s event, in July.

We are also planning to introduce some interactive online elements to the FIX event so that those registered, who may be unable to visit Hong Kong, will still be able to join us. We will make further announcements accordingly.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at barbara.law@fix-events.com if you have immediate questions.

For questions regarding sponsorship, please contact dada.yau@fix-events.com.
