In consideration of the recent sharp increase of new cases of COVID-19 in Hong Kong and the tightening of group gathering restrictions by the HKSAR government, the FIX Asia Pacific Education and Marketing Subcommittee has decided to postpone the 18th Asia Pacific Trading Summit (scheduled for 22nd July) to 2nd September 2020 (Wednesday). The venue for the event, JW Marriott Hong Kong, will remain unchanged.
We understand that postponing the event may cause a disruption to the plans of many, and for this, we apologize. We know that many of you have been waiting for this in-person conference for quite some time and we are disappointed to have to postpone as a result of this sudden rise in COVID-19 cases right before our industry conference. 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. Although we have put in place extra health and safety measures at the event, we also have to observe the social gathering restrictions by the HKSAR government.
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 look forward to seeing you at this year’s event in September.
In the meantime, please look out for updates, industry commentary and insights from the FIX Trading Community. As ever, your participation and engagement enables us, as an industry, to help shape institutional trading’s development and evolution.
